God made the world
and all its creatures
with men and women made in His image.
By breaking His laws people have broken contact with God,
and damaged His good world
This we see and sense in the world and in ourselves.
The Bible tells us the Good News that God still loves us
and has shown His love uniquely in His Son, Jesus Christ.
He lived among us
and died on the cross to save us from our sin.
But God raised Him from the dead!
In His love, this living Jesus invites us
to turn from our sins
and enter by faith into a restored relationship with God
Who gives true life before and beyond death.
Then, with the power of the Holy Spirit remaking us like Jesus,
we – with all Christians –
enjoy His friendship
and are available for Him to use
in sharing and showing
His love, justice, and peace
locally and globally
until Jesus returns!
In Jesus’ name
we gladly share with you God message for all people –
You matter to God!
Accept His invitation!
