We have some Good News we would like to share with you.
At just the right time, God sent his Son, born of a woman, to live the perfect life we could not live and to die the death we could not die. He took upon himself our guilt and sin and crucified them. Jesus died in our place and was buried, but on the third day he rose again from the dead and forever conquered the hold which Sin, the Devil, and death have upon us. He will come again one day so that we can be with him forever in glory.
Every human being has a deep sense that something is terribly wrong. Something is wrong with the world, and something is wrong with us. We call that something Sin. God made the world and humans very good, but we chose to rebel against his reign and seek our own way in the world. Separated from the source of life and joy, we fell into misery, alienation, frustration, and death. But God did not abandon his people. Beginning already with Adam and Eve, God promised a Savior who would set things right.
The good news of the gospel is that though we are far worse than we ever imagined, God is far more loving than we ever hoped for. In Jesus he is reconciling the world to himself, and all who believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
