The Good News that Jesus Saves!
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news that God has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for our sins and rise again. When we believe in Him as our Savior, we are forgiven and have eternal life. The Gospel is the power of God that can change our lives and give us hope for the future. We can share the Gospel with others through prayer, evangelism, and simply living out its truth in our lives.
“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and is justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”

Learning to Talk with God Through Prayer
Prayer is communication with God. It can be a simple conversation or a deep dialogue. Prayer can be spoken out loud, or it can be silent. We can pray any time, anywhere – we don’t need a special place or time set aside for prayer.
Prayer is a way to express our love and faith in God. We can ask Him for anything we need, big or small. And we can thank Him for all He has done for us. Prayer also helps us grow closer to God and develop a relationship with Him.
“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
Therefore, when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men.
I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.” (Do not pray like the hypocrites; they love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I am telling you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get). (Matthew 6:1-6)
“When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.”
“When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:5-6)

God’s Love for Everyone
As Christians, we believe that God loves everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from. Because God first loved us, we can love others and show them God’s love. We can show God’s love by serving others by helping them in practical ways.
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” (John 3:16)
As Christians, we believe that all people are created in the image of God, which is why everyone deserves our respect.
“Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God.” (Genesis 1:26-27)
Jesus Is the Savior of All People
As Christians, we believe that Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life and that He died on the cross to pay for our sins. We believe that after three days, Jesus was raised from the dead and is now alive. Because of His sacrifice, we can be saved if we place our faith in Him as Savior and Lord.
“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 3:16)
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Because of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection from the dead, we can receive salvation. We can be saved by believing that we are sinners and placing our faith in God’s grace through Christ alone.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
We are saved by grace through faith. We cannot earn salvation through good deeds or religious rituals. And if our salvation is based upon anything we do, it would be worthless. Instead, we are saved by God’s grace and nothing we do can earn salvation.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Discipleship is a process of learning and following Jesus Christ. It involves growing in our understanding of who He is and what He has done for us. We also learn to follow Him by obeying His commands and living out His teachings. Discipleship is not just about learning information, but also about applying it to our lives.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to share the good news with others and disciple them into Christlikeness. We do this by teaching them about who Jesus is and what He has done for us.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
As a disciple of Christ, we also learn about how to apply our faith in everyday life. We learn to pray, read the Bible, worship God, and serve others as a way of living out our faith.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37)
