GRACE ALONE. FAITH ALONE. SCRIPTURE ALONE.
The Bible is a vast and unique treasury of wisdom, written by men divinely inspired, with the Holy Spirit as the ultimate author. The history and prophecy of the Bible are unparalleled in human culture. But it is much more than that. It is God’s Holy Word and the principal way that we learn that our salvation is by grace alone through faith alone.
We have summarized several key teachings into a succinct and retainable system that can be shared:
GOD’S PLAN for mankind from the beginning was fellowship with Him and fulfillment for Him. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.’
MAN’S PROBLEM throughout the centuries has been hereditary, willful separation from God which began with Adam’s first sin in the garden. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” The separation between God and man could not be spanned by religion or good works or morality or the church.
GOD’S REMEDY for this unreachable chasm between God and man could only be filled by God’s son Jesus. Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus was the only person in human history who could give His life for our sins. We call His death, burial and resurrection THE GOSPEL because it is the bridge between heaven and earth.
1) Accept the fact that God has a plan for your life.
2) Accept the fact that you have inherited a spiritual problem called sin.
3) Accept the fact that the only remedy for this disease is Jesus, who was crucified as a propitiation for our sins, and then rose from the dead.
Romans 10:9-10 says, “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
