Abundant and Free
Jesus Christ made this amazing statement—“I have come that they might have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10). This statement is amazing because it shows God’s desire for you. Jesus Christ wants you to experience life—His life, in and through you, every day, here and now.
At Basic Gospel, it’s our desire to help you genuinely walk in this new life and know the depths of God’s love.
The place to start is the Good News—Jesus’s death, burial and resurrection. Jesus died to take away your sins, so that He could give you His life. The offer of the Gospel is life.
This is why the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the heart and soul of Christianity. It solves our deepest problem.
Many people say their deepest and most urgent need is the forgiveness of sins. But that isn’t true. Yes, we need forgiveness, but according to the Bible, we have an even greater problem. Consider these passages of Scripture.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned… Romans 5:12 (NIV)
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins… Ephesians 2:1 (NIV)
Sin was a big problem. And it brought a horrific consequence – spiritual death.
So what is salvation? It is being made alive together with Christ. Paul put it this way: “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ, even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved” (Ephesians 2:4, 5).
If you are hoping and praying to break free from a stale, empty existence and are longing to experience a new quality of life altogether, will you receive Jesus Christ today? Here is His promise to you: “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24).
With Jesus, you can let go of your past, your guilt and shame, and live each day knowing that God loves you. With Him, you can walk in freedom and experience true joy and enduring peace. This is our prayer for you.
Let me encourage you to join us each day as we help real people in real time hear, believe and live the good news of Christ Jesus.
