The Most Important Information You Need to Know

No one is righteous (Romans 3.10).  For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3.23).  The wages of sin is death (Romans 6.23a)--everlasting punishment (Matthew 25.46) in Hell fire (Matthew 18.9)--but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ (Romans 6.23b).  For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son so that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).  God has shown his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5.8).  And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world (1 John 2.2).  He poured out his soul unto death (Isaiah 53.12) and washed us from our sins in his own blood (Revelation 1.5).  The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1.7), for in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2.9). He who believes on the Son has everlasting life, and he who does not believe on the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God falls upon him (John 3.36).

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God in all of its content, is historically accurate, and is the only source of spiritual truth. The Bible tells us that there is one eternal, all powerful God, who has revealed Himself to us in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This one true God created the heavens, the earth, and all other things in six 24-hour days approximately 6000 years ago.

God created man perfect, but the first man and woman willfully sinned (disobeyed God), thereby ruining their relationship with God and bringing suffering and death upon themselves and all people. The consequence of sin is physical death and everlasting punishment in Hell. But God provided a way for our relationship with Him to be restored and to save us from the everlasting punishment. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Jesus who is God the Son made flesh, lived a perfect life of obedience to God the Father.  Jesus was falsely charged, tried, and unjustly condemned to die a gruesome death hanging on a wooden cross by nails driven through His flesh.  When Jesus died on the cross, His body was laid in a tomb.  On the third day He rose bodily from the grave, thereby proving his sacrifice was sufficient to atone for the sins of the world--past, present, and future.

All who die trusting Jesus will have everlasting life in pure joy and perfection with God in Heaven. But those who reject Jesus will be sent to everlasting Hell fire because they do not have a right relationship with God, which comes only by faith in Jesus’ sacrificial death for our sins.


Ephesians 2:8-10 (King James Version):

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.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
