THERE IS GOOD NEWS
EVERYTHING IS NOT AS IT SHOULD BE
Humanity has a problem. One quick scan of the world around you and you’ll agree…things don’t add up. There is pain and sorrow. Hate and anger. Disease and death. People are lonely and desperately searching for purpose and identity. Guilt, anxiety, and fear surround us. The world is broken.
SO WHAT IS THE GOOD NEWS?
He loved you so much He refused to leave you as you are. Instead, He put into motion the greatest rescue plan to save and bring you back to LIFE so you could be in a relationship with Him. To rescue us, God sent his son, Jesus, to be perfect love in human flesh on this broken Earth. He lived a perfect life, yet because of His great love for you Jesus willingly died on a cross for your sins and suffered the judgment and wrath that your sinful nature and deeds deserved.
IN SHORT: HE DIED IN YOUR PLACE.
BUT EVEN DEATH COULD NOT HOLD JESUS DOWN.
Jesus defeated death and sin once and for all on the third day when He rose from the grave. Jesus is alive. This victory now gives us freedom from death! Jesus did for us what we could not do for ourselves and made a way back to God where there was no way. The name of Jesus is the only name that saves. His power is the only power that can raise us from the dead and give us eternal life.
THIS IS THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS.
HEAVEN IS OPEN
...you can’t earn it, you don’t deserve it, but you can receive it. The invitation is yours. If you want to move from death to life and know for sure that you are right with God, then place your faith in Jesus as the Savior and the Lord of your life. It’s not a magic formula, but a humble prayer to the God of the Universe who created, loved and rescued you. You can pray this in your own words…
Jesus, I want to be saved. I want LIFE! I confess my sins and ask for forgiveness. I believe that You loved me so much that You came to die on the cross for my sins and that You rose from the dead to defeat all sin and death once and for all. I receive Your love, grace, and the gift of eternal life today! I put my old life behind me and choose to trust and follow You alone as my personal Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!
Heaven is rejoicing with you. You have just made the most important decision of your life! And we are praying these words of surrender are the beginning of your new life in Christ.
