THE PURE AND SIMPLE GOSPEL
Gospel is a Greek word that means “good news,” and the heart of the Good News is this: The God of the universe loves you and has provided the way for you to be saved from the just penalty of your sins. He has provided the way for you to know Him and live with Him forever—and that way is Jesus, the sinless Son of God.
Here is the pure and simple Gospel in a nutshell:
When you come to faith in Jesus Christ, what you receive as a child of God is far greater than any trial you will ever face and any earthly gift you could ever receive:
You were made to know God deeply and serve Him with your whole heart. Nothing else will satisfy your soul; you will be restless until you say yes to His call. Do not harden your heart to this glorious invitation! Come home to the loving arms of your Savior today.
ACCEPTING GOD'S FREE GIFT
What does it look like to give your life to Christ?
The Bible tells us, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). It sounds simple, and yet it is the most profound decision anyone can make. Its implications will touch every aspect of your life from here to eternity.
So what are you waiting for?
To receive Christ today, simply pray to God in your own words. If you’re not sure where to start, this is a great place to begin:
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner in need of Your grace. Forgive me for my sins and pride. I believe You have secured salvation for me through Your death on the cross and Your resurrection from the dead. I receive Your gift today. Enter my heart and make me new. Give me true life and hope that will never fade, and help me follow You all the days of my life. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
If you just prayed that prayer, hallelujah! Welcome to the family of God! We rejoice in your declaration of faith in Jesus Christ. We would also love to hear your testimony, pray for you, and give you some free resources to help you in your walk with Christ.
