The Gospel

Experience Grace

Just as there are physical laws that govern the physical universe, so are there spiritual laws which govern your relationship with God.

First Law

God LOVES you and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life.

God’s Love

“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” John 3:16 NIV

God’s Plan

Christ said, “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly ” ..that is, that it might be full and meaningful. John 10:10

Second Law

Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God.
Therefore, he cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for his life.

Man Is Sinful

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23

Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.

Man Is Separated

“The wages of sin is death” That is, eternal spiritual separation from God. Romans 6:23

This diagram illustrates that God is holy and man is sinful. A great gulf separates the two. The arrows illustrate that man is continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through his own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion – but he inevitably fails.

The third law explains the only way to bridge this gulf…

Third Law

Jesus Christ is God’s ONLY provision for man’s sin.
Through Him you can know and experience God’s love and plan for your life.

He Died in Our Place

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8

He Rose From the Dead

“Christ died for our sins…He was buried…He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures…He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred…” 1 Corinthians 15:3-6

He Is the Only Way to God

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me’” John 14:6.

This diagram illustrates that God has bridged the gulf which separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.

It is not enough just to know these three laws…

Fourth Law

We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord;
then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.

We Must Receive Christ

“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” John 1:12

We Receive Christ Through Faith

“By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast” Ephesians 2:8,9

When We Receive Christ, We Experience a New Birth
