Who is God
  • God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are coequal and are one God.  God loved you so much that He created you so that you can have a relationship with Him.
  • Genesis 1: 1, 26-27 and 3: 22; Psalms 90: 2; Matthew 28: 19; John 3: 16; 2 Corinthians 13: 14; 1 Peter 1: 2

What is Sin
  • Sin is what separates us from God.  It isolates us and puts a wall between us and God.  Sin is really rebellion against God.  It's something in our very nature that causes us to choose to do our own thing rather than choosing to do things God's way.
  • The Fact is nobody is perfect.  Romans 3: 23 tells us that "everyone has sinned and fallen short of God's glorious standard."  In fact sin is responsible for both our physical and spiritual death.  Romans 6: 23 says, "The payment for said is death.  But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord."
  • Exodus 34: 7; Isaiah 53: 6; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 3: 5-6; 1 John 1: 7-9

Who is Jesus
  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father, who is God.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on a cross.  He arose from His grave after being bodily dead for three days.  He did this to show His power over sin and death.  Jesus ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
  • Isaiah 9: 6; Matthew 1: 22-23; John 1: 1-5 and 14: 10-21; Acts 1: 9-11; Romans 1: 3-4; 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4; 1 Timothy 6: 14-15; Titus 2: 13; Hebrews 4: 14-15

Salvation
  • Salvation is a gift from God to humankind.  Humankind can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Chris as God's offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin's penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Chris into their life by faith.
  • SALVATION PRAYER:  Lord, I thank you for my new life and I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that my sin caused you to go to the cross to die fro my sins.  You rose from the dead and conquered hell and death, and no sit at the right hand of the Father.  I am born again, I've been set free, and I have been given a new life.  Amen
  • John 1: 12 and 14: 6; Romans 5: 1, 6: 23, and 10: 13; Galatians 3:26, Ephesians 2: 8-9; Titus 3: 5; 1 Peter 3: 18
