We Want You To Know

God's Plan


In John ch10v10, Jesus said, "I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly". It was always His plan from the beginning that we would life a full and happy life in relationship with Him.




Our Fall


In Romans 3:23, the bible says that all of us have sinned (messed up, got it wrong) and have fallen short of God's plan. On our own, we can never live up to His standard. Our bad choices have consequences, and those consequences meant dying without God. Thankfully, God had a plan for that too.




God's Grace


John 3:16 says that God chose to send His Son Jesus to live as a man. He showed us how we were meant to live. Even better than that, He gave up his life to pay for the consequences of our sin.




Your Response


John 3:16 also says that whoever believes in Jesus has eternal live. Because He took your punishment on Himself at the cross, your debt is paid and you now have a chance to life to the full, in relationship with him again. You just need to choose to give up your own way of doing things and live in line with God’s plan for you.




A Simple Prayer


If you want to be right with God, pray this simple prayer right now.

"Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God who died to pay the penalty for my sins. I ask your forgiveness for all my sins. I also want to stop doing things my way, and start living the way You made me to live. From this day forward I will look to You for how to live, reading Your word and listening to Your voice."

That’s it. Your past is forgiven, and your future with God is waiting!

All Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, was given by inspiration of God as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of God, and that these Scriptures are the only rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)




God


In the one true God who has revealed Himself as existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible (Matthew 28:10; Luke 3:21-22)




People


The human race was originally created by God in His image, until sin entered by disobedience and rebellion and left humanity totally incapable of saving itself (Romans 5:12; Genesis 1:27)




Jesus
