We believe that Jesus died for sinners and that God in His great love wants all men to come to Christ and be saved from the penalty of their sin.
Below are five things God wants us to know about our sin and salvation.
FIRST: Our sin separates us from God.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
- Romans 3:23
As it is written: “None is righteous, no not one; no one understands; There is none who seeks after God.”
- Romans 3:10,11
SECOND: We need to be saved.
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
- John 3:3
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 6:23
THIRD: We cannot save ourselves.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
- Ephesians 2:8,9
FOURTH: God has provided salvation for us through Jesus Christ.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
- John 3:16
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
- Romans 5:8
FIFTH: God’s offer of salvation is a free gift purchased by Christ’s death on the cross. But like all gifts, it is not yours until you accept it.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.
- John 1:12
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
- Romans 10:13
