The Good News
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Everything Was Created Through Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, preeminent over all creation. For by him all things were created in the heavens and on the earth, visible things and invisible things, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things are held together.
Creation Was Very Good
God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
Sin Brought Death
Sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin. So death passed on to all men, because all sinned.
God Loves You
God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
John 3:16, 17
Jesus Died and Then Rose on The Third Day
So then he delivered him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led him away. He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called “The Place of a Skull”, which is called in Hebrew, “Golgotha”, where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.
Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone from the door and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. The angel answered the women, “Don’t be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus, who has been crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, just as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
Jesus is Lord
The righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. For there is no distinction, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes, even if he dies, will live. Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
John 11:25, 26
Life in Heaven
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away and the sea is no more. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will live with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more, because the first things have passed away.”
