What is the Gospel?

The Gospel, the good news, is that
Jesus Christ died for your sins
and was raised from the dead.
If you believe this
you can receive eternal life.

Why?

One of the most famous verses in the bible is John 3:16 which says:

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

Why do I need to be saved?

You are a sinner and need forgiveness.

All have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
The wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life
in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

Our sins separate us from God.
You cannot know Him or His love while you continue in sin.

You need to be saved:
from the consequence of your sin- death.

You need to be saved:
from the wrath of God.

God is angry towards a sinful and rebellious world.
All mankind will gave to give account to God for
what they say and what they do (and even what they think).

But, God in His mercy has given us a way to escape His wrath:

All Since,therefore, we have now been justified by his blood,
much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God
. (Romans 5:9)

You need to admit you are a sinner and ask for forgiveness for all your sins.
You need to repent, to change your mind, and turn to Jesus.

How can I be saved?

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31)

But how does that work?

Jesus Christ was crucified.
He died to pay the debt we owed God for our sins.
In other words:
He took your place and died for you.
But God Almighty raised Him from the dead.
This proved than when Jesus gave his life
as a sacrifice for you and shed His blood for you,
God Almighty accepted that Jesus Christ’s death
fully paid the price for your sins.

Why should I believe this is true?

There is only one way to be saved and that is by putting your faith in Jesus Christ, believing God raised Him from the dead and accepting Him as your saviour.

If you do not believe in Jesus
you will have to pay for your sins yourself
which means experiencing
eternal separation from God – death.

Our sins separate us from God. You cannot know Him or His love while you continue in sin. You need to be saved from the consequence of your sin- death.

 

You can accept Jesus as your Saviour by saying a prayer to God something like:

Dear God
Thank you that Jesus died on the cross for me
and that You raised Him from the dead.
I realise that I am a sinner and that I need forgiveness.
Please forgive me my sins.
I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour.
Come into my heart and make me become
the person You want me to be.
Amen

If you say this meaning it from your heart
you will be saved (Romans 10:10)
and be born again into God’s kingdom. (1 Peter 1:3)

You have become a Christian

You can develop a personal relationship with Jesus by:

• Meeting with other Christians
• Learning to pray and grow in faith and
• Reading the Bible and being taught about it.

This is why we meet people in the Church.
