Learn about who God is and what He has done for us!
WHO GOD IS
Scripture tells us that God is the Creator of all things. He is perfect and holy, meaning that there is no fault to be found in Him. He created us so that we might know Him and live in relationship with Him.
WHO WE ARE
The problem is that we aren’t perfect. We sin, mess up, and reject God and what He has for us. And because God is holy, sin cannot be in the presence of God. Therefore, because of our sin, our eternal destination is hell, separated from God forever.
WHAT GOD DID
However, in spite of our sin, God carried out a plan to save us. God sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to enter into time as a man, live a perfect, sinless life, and die the death that we deserved. Jesus’ death on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice for sin.
WHAT GOD OFFERS
Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, God now offers life to us as a gift. Jesus received our death. We receive Jesus’ life. The Bible says that we receive this free gift of life through faith. To put it simply, faith is confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. The moment we truly place our faith in Jesus, we are saved and made new.
WHAT WE NOW DO
The story doesn’t end there. The Bible says that God has saved us that we might walk in new life. Freed from sin and gifted with the Holy Spirit, God is calling us to becoming more and more like Jesus. We achieve this through the Church. God calls us to partner with other believers to grow in Him and become more like Him. We’d love to partner with you at First Baptist Azle!
