The Gospel

As Creator and Ruler of the whole universe, God deserves all of our love and obedience. “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor: for Thou hast created all things.” (Revelation 4:11)

Sadly, instead of loving and obeying God, each of us has turned to his own sinful way. “All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way.” (Isaiah 53:6)

Instead of leading us to a better life, our sinful choices lead to physical and spiritual death. “The wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)

But there is still hope! God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and suffer the judgment that we deserve for our sins. “But God [proved] His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

Jesus Christ rose from the dead bodily after three days. God now commands every one of us to turn from our sins to Him. Those who continue to reject Him face certain and everlasting separation from God in Hell. “God now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.” (Acts 17:30)

God promises that if you will place your dependence in Jesus Christ alone to forgive you, you will be saved from sin and Hell. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
