"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

The Gospel 

We are all sinners

 

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23).

 

"As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one" (Rom. 3:10).

"The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?" (Jer. 17:9).

 

There is a penalty for our sins

 

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom. 6:23).

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Cor. 6:9-10).

 

Law-keeping and good works cannot save us

 

"But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away" (Isa. 64:6).

 

"Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin" (Rom. 3:20).

 

Salvation is by grace through faith

 

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9).

 

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit" (Tit. 3:5).

 

Jesus is the only way to God and to Heaven

 

"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6).

 

"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).

 

"He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life" (1 John 5:12).

"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus" (1 Tim. 2:5).

Jesus paid the penalty for us

 

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Cor. 5:21).

 

We must turn from our sins

 

"I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish" (Luke 13:5).

 

 "He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy" (Prov. 28:13).

 

"Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon" (Isa. 55:7).

 

 We must believe and put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ

 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

 

"And he brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? So they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:30-31).

 

"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom. 10:13).

 

 Now is the day of salvation

 

"For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you. "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2).

 

"Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near" (Isa. 55:6).

 

 The Promise of God to you

 

"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart" (Jer 29:13).
