THE GOSPEL

RELATIONSHIP

God created us for a relationship with Him long before the world ever existed. This is why humans exist - because He wanted to be with us. 

Ephesians 1:4-5

Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23a

RESCUE

But God wasn't okay with this outcome of sin. So he sent a rescue plan. That rescue plan's name was Jesus.

John 3:16, Romans 5:8

Romans 10:9

Ephesians 1:7
