The Good News
We can have a personal relationship with the RISEN Jesus!
God, our Father, created us and loves us. Unfortunately, like rebellious children, we disobeyed Him and demanded our way (sin), resulting in punishment, death and separation. So God came up with a plan to rescue us. He sent His Son, Jesus, to take our punishment, give us eternal life, and restore our relationship to God.
God, our Father, desires us to come to our senses, return to Him, and apologize. He asks us to trust that Jesus took the punishment for our sins (as written in Isaiah 53).
Our Father in heaven passionately wants His Holy Spirit to live inside us.
These three things can change your life…
- Apologize for sinning
- Trust Jesus to forgive all your sins
- Ask for His Spirit to come live inside you.
All the work required for a restored relationship has been accomplished. You cannot earn anything. What is required is your step of faith.
Have you heard His voice and responded? He’s waiting in love.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. - John 3:16
But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. - Romans 10:8-10
God’s Plan as Found in Isaiah 53
53 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. 3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. 4 Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. 8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. 9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth 10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.11 After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
