Dear Friend,
We would like to share with you the GREATEST NEWS available today, - the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. But first, please think about the following two questions:

1. If you were to die today, do you know for sure that you would go to heaven?

2. If you were to stand before God right now and He were to ask you: "Why should I let
you into my heaven?" What would you say?

Do you know that the Bible says there is a way that we can know for SURE whether we are on our way to heaven or not? I John 5:13 tells us "These things have I written unto you... that ye may know that ye have eternal life..."

If you are not absolutely certain about the responses to the above two question, then please examine the navigation buttons on the left in sequential order. You will be able to read verses from the Bible, God's Holy Word, that will show you how you can settle this most important issue once and for all.

If you have any question after you have completed reading the information provided, then please fill out the form in the Follow Up section and click on the submit button.

May God bless you!

God's Purpose for Man: To Honor and Serve Him

God created man to honor, serve, and fellowship with Him. The Bible says: "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." (Revelation 4:11)

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
(I Corinthians 10:31)

"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:11)

If God's purpose for man was to honor, serve, and fellowship with Him, why is there war, conflict, and suffering among the people? Where is Love, Joy & Peace?

God has a plan for your life.

Man's Problem: Sin

Man chose to rebel (SIN) against God rather than serve Him. Sin has separated man from God.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

"But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." (Isaiah 59:2)

Sin against God is man's problem.

 

 


What does it mean to sin against God?

Sin is breaking God's law "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." (I John 3:4)

We sin by doing what God has commanded us NOT to do and by NOT DOING what He has told us to do. (James 4:17). Therefore, we are sinners by nature and by choice.

Sin's Penalty: Death

When man chose to disobey God, he became guilty before God and suffered the resulting penalty: death (Genesis 5)

"For the wages of sin is death…" (Romans 6:23)

The basic meaning of death is separation. The Bible teaches that there are three types of death:


1. Spiritual death separated man from the life of God (Ephesians 2:1)

2. Physical death separates the soul from the body. (Hebrews 9:27)

3. Eternal death separates the person, both soul & body, from God forever in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15 )


Death is the penalty of our sin.



 

That is the bad news. However, God's Gospel (Good News) provides for a way out of this hopeless situation.

God's Provision: Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God, came to earth, died on the cross for your sins and mine, and rose from the dead on the third day. Thus, He paid the penalty for our sins and offers the free Gift of Eternal Life to all men. This act bridged the gulf that separated man from God.

"But God commendeth (showed) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

God sent Jesus to die for our sin.


 

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God…" (I Peter 3:18)

So, how do we receive this free Gift of Eternal Life?

Man's Wrong Response: Self Effort

Throughout history, man has attempted various ways to restore fellowship with God. None have been successful.

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 14:12)

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done…" (Titus 3:5)

wrong way

 

 

 

Religion, money, morality, good works, church membership, baptism - all fall short of achieving Eternal Life for us.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Man's Proper Response: Turn and Trust

In order to receive this free gift of Eternal Life, you must repent of your sins (turn from self will to the will of God) and put your trust (faith) in Jesus Christ alone as the only hope of Salvation. (Saved from the penalty of sin)

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

"Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." (Acts 20:21)

"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…" (Acts 3:19)

"And they said, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…" (Acts 16:31)

Repentence is turning from my sin while trusting Jesus Christ with all of my heart.


God's Promise: Eternal Life

Jesus said: "He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24) This verse has three parts:

1. Has Eternal Life

2. Does not come into Judgment

3. Has passed from death into life (Eternal Life with God)

We can have eternal life.


 

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)

"...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23b)

As a saved person, you will experience love, joy & peace that God wants you to have.

Now, that you have read the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ, what
will you do with Jesus? Will you receive the FREE GIFT?

Your Response: Will you trust and repent today?

To do so you must:

1. Admit that you have sinned against a holy God and ask Him for forgiveness.

2. Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Who died for you on the cross, rose from the dead and is Lord over ALL.

3. Pray, asking Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior.

Heaven or Hell - What will you choose?



If the following example prayer expresses the desire of your heart, you can pray this prayer and Jesus Christ will come into your life as He has promised.

"Dear Lord Jesus: I know that I am a sinner. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Please forgive my sins and come into my life as my Lord and Savior. Please take control and show me Your will for my life. I pray this in Jesus Name, Amen.
