1. CREATION: HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?
In the beginning, God created everything good, in perfect harmony. He made man to worship and obey Him.
Genesis 1:1-2:3; Psalm 95:3-7
2. THE FALL: WHAT WENT WRONG?
Man has disobeyed God and tried to determine for themselves what is right and wrong. The consequence, of that sin, has been the devastation of all the good things God created so that now there is sin, sickness, sadness, pain and ultimately death. No longer does mankind desire to worship and obey God, and worst of all, we are eternally separated from a Holy God because of our guilt before Him.
Genesis 3:1-19; Romans 3:9-23; Romans 8:19-21; Isaiah 59:2
3. SALVATION: WHAT’S THE SOLUTION?
God’s Son, Jesus Christ, lived a sinless life and then died on the cross for our sins. He took our punishment for sin and our guilt so that we could be given His righteousness. Three days later He rose from the grave, and He has forever ended the separation between God and man.
2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Romans 5:6-11; Matthew 27:32-28:10
4. THE RESTORATION: WHERE IS IT HEADED?
God will one day restore this broken world and make all things new so that there is no longer sickness, pain, sadness, or even death. Those who do not follow Jesus in this life will be eternally judged by God. Those who follow Jesus in this life will live forever with God in perfect relationship with Him.
Revelation 21:1-8; John 11:25-26
To have your sin and guilt removed, be in right relationship with God and live forever with Him you must turn from sin and trust in Jesus and what He did for you on the cross to save you!
Romans 10:9-13; Acts 20:21
