The Gospel

Cross_002Everyone ever born is in need of accepting and believing the Gospel. There is no other way to have a relationship with God and spend Eternity in Heaven, but through Jesus Christ. Below is a summary of the truths of the Gospel as revealed in God’s Word, the Bible, summed up in the acronym, “FAITH.”



F is for Forgiveness

We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness –
“In Him, (meaning Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”    Ephesians 1:7a



A is for Available

Forgiveness is available. It is – Available for all…
“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
But not automatic…
“Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 7:21a



I is for Impossible

It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.
God is:
Love  –  John 3:16   and He is:   Just  –  For judgement is without mercy     James 2:13a
Man is:
   Sinful  – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”     Romans 3:23


T is for Turn and for Trust

 Turn from something – sin and self.
 “But unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”      Luke 13:3b
Turn to Someone; Trust Christ Only.
“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”       1 Corinthians 15:3b-4
“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 10:9


H is for Heaven

Heaven is eternal life.
Christ gives life Here –  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”    John 10:10b
Christ gives life Hereafter (eternally)  –  “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself;  that where I am, there you may be also.”           John 14:3


How can a person have God’s forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord?
