The Good News of Jesus Christ
The one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him (Gen. 1:26-28).
But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23).
In his great love, God sent his Son Jesus to come as king and rescue his people from their enemies—most significantly their own sin (Ps. 2; Luke 1:67-79).
God showed his love to us in that while we were still sinners, he sent his Son to die on the cross in our place. Christ proved he was the Son of God after dying on the cross by rising again from the dead. He defeated both sin and death (Rom. 5:8; Rom. 1:4; 1 Cor. 15:20-28).
He now calls us to turn from our sin and place our trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness. As we place our trust in Christ alone, we are born again into a new life. He indwells us with his Spirit, provides us with power to trust him through temptation, and we inherit eternal life with God forever (Acts 17:30, John 1:12; John 3:16).
This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
