THE GOOD NEWS

We live in a high-stress, often confusing world. Though we possess many things, the one thing we may feel that we are missing is a sense of peace, a lasting joy, and an abundant life. We at Community Baptist would like to share this Good News with you from God’s Word:

God loves you very much

Not only is there a God, but God’s Word says that God knows us and loves us deeply. “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

But there is something that stands in the way.

It is called sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) Sin is described as anything less than perfection, and it is our sin that keeps us from experiencing God’s love.

God expresses His love through His Son, Jesus.

“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures… was buried… was raised on the third day.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) Christ paid the penalty for our sin by dying on the cross and providing complete forgiveness for all our sin.

God invites you to receive Eternal and Abundant Life.

God promises you salvation in Christ. “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.” (Romans 10:9) All you need to do is express your personal faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior. Ask God to forgive your sin, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for your sin and rose again on the third day, and commit your life to following Him.
