The Gospel of Jesus Christ According to the Word of God.

The Bible is the Word of God and it tells us…

-- That there is only one true and living God -- That God is perfect in every way, and beyond our understanding -- That God is one, yet in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, a mysterious truth -- That God created everything -- That God controls everything --That when God made the first man, Adam then sinned, and it caused all his descendants to be born sinners, spiritually dead, slaves of sin, disobedient and under condemnation, all are guilty

sinners -- That God, in love, sent His divine eternal Son into the world in as a man, Jesus Christ -- That Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man, a mysterious truth -- That only Jesus alone, being divine and sinless, the righteousness of God, was fit to pay the penalty, taking God’s wrath, for sinners like you and me -- That Christ died on the cross, bearing the sin and punishment, to ransom, redeem, reconcile, propitiate, and guarantee of all that is

needed for that salvation of His people -- That Jesus, being both Lord and Saviour, rose from the dead on the third day by God's power in accord with God's plan -- That Jesus will come again and Judge everyone who ever lived -- That there is absolutely nothing we can do to save ourselves, no works, not contribution, true salvation is by grace alone -- That God commands all people everywhere to repent (genuine grief over sins and turning from self and sin to God) and believe in Jesus Christ alone (all that He was, said, did and will do) and be baptised in the name of the Father the Son, and the Holy Spirit -- That

God's saving grace has enabled, by the power of the Holy Spirit bringing them to new life, all who turn from sin to follow Christ in faith -- That there is no other god(s), salvation, or true hope or acceptance with God but in Christ through faith -- That all who do not believe in Christ will suffer eternal punishment -- That because of Christ, all who are born again (made alive spiritually), have Christ’s perfect righteousness counted as theirs by faith, are set free from sin and condemnation and are indwelt and led by the Holy Spirit -- That all who truly believe in Christ will live a life of obedience in faith to God's Word, and spend eternity in the presence of God as His people-- These are all absolute truths that God has told us in His Word about Himself -- Therefore you must

repent and believe because it is true and only in Jesus can anyone find eternal life.

All of these facts are taught to us by God Himself in His Word. If you have a Bible you can see it clearly written for yourself.
