The gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. 

The simple truth is that there is a God who created you and He loves you very much.Your life is not an accident. You were created for a purpose.

However, we all have chosen to disobey God and sin against Him. All of us have done wrong and have failed to do what is right. (Romans 3:23). 

We may not be more sinful than our neighbor, or we may be far worse than anyone we know, it does not matter.  Either way, we are guilty before God (1 John 1:8).God is perfect, always right and fair.  He cannot tolerate sin.  He cannot simply overlook the fact that we have chosen to disobey Him. 

The Bible says, “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).  This means that the fair payment for our rebellion against God is death.  It is the punishment that we deserve.

Jesus, the one and only Son of God came to earth and lived a sinless life.  He was crucified even though He was perfectly innocent. Because Jesus had not sinned He was the perfect sacrifice.  He was able to receive the punishment for our sins.  He was put into our place and took on Himself the sentence of death that should have been ours (Romans 5:8).

However, Jesus did not remain dead.  After three days he rose from the grave and later ascended into heaven.  He will one day return for all of those who are trusting in Him as their Savior.Jesus died for you. 

You can be saved from your sin by asking Him for forgiveness.  It doesn't matter what you have done in your past, if you cry out to Jesus for forgiveness, He will not reject you.  You need to look at you life, admit that you are a sinner, genuinely desire to turn your back on sin, and ask Him to forgive you.  If you do this, He promises to forgive you.Jesus is everywhere all the time.  He can hear you now if you ask Him for forgiveness. 

Please turn your life over to him now. Time slips by so quickly, don't miss this opportunity. If you want to pray and ask Jesus to be your Savior, you can say a prayer something like this.

“Jesus, I know that I have sinned against you.  I know the truth is that I have sinned by my own choice and that I am the one responsible for it.  I know that the fair punishment for my sin would be death.  Jesus, I believe that you died in my place.  Please forgive my sin.  You are the only one who can save me.  Come into my life, take away my sin, and show me how to live my life in a way that is right and pleasing to you."

If you have prayed this prayer you are saved.  You are now completely forgiven, innocent in the eyes of God.Welcome to the family of God!

It is important for you to start to grow in your relationship with Jesus.  Just like any relationship, you need to spend time with someone to get to know them.  The way to know God is through the Bible.  It is important to find a church you can attend where they teach the Bible.  This will allow you to talk with a pastor who can help teach you the Bible and to be around other Christians who can encourage you.If you would like to attend our church you are very welcome to do so.
