The Gospel in 60 Seconds...

There is one God, He made us, He made us in His image, He made us good, we?ve sinned against Him and we?ve fallen. God would be just and good to judge us eternally, but in His amazing love, the eternal Son of God has taken on flesh, been incarnate. Jesus Christ, fully man, fully God, lived the life we should?ve lived, lived perfectly, died on the cross, in the place of our sins, in the place of everyone who will repent of their sins and trust in Him. God raised Him from the dead, He ascended into heaven, He will return in the same manner and He calls us to repent of our sins and trust on Him. He will give us new life, fill us with the Holy Spirit, give us the new birth, and adopt us as His reconciled children forever.
