Recognize God's Plan - Peace and Life
God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life. The
BIBLE says... "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only
Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John
Realize Our Problem - Separation
People choose to disobey God and go their own way. This results in
separation from God. The BIBLE says... "For all have sinned and fall short of
the glory of God." Romans 3:23
Respond To God's Remedy - The Cross
God sent His Son to bridge the gap. Christ did this by paying the
penalty for our sins when he died on the cross and rose from
the grave. The
BIBLE says... "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we
were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
Receive Christ - As Lord and Savior
You cross the bridge into God's family when you prayerfully
ask Christ to come into your life. The BIBLE says... "Yet to all who received
him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children
of God." John 1:12
