What Is The Good News?
The "GOOD NEWS" is that God has taken the initiative to restore our broken relationship with Him. The surprising truth is we aren't reaching Him at all. He is lovingly reaching us.
Why do we need the "GOOD NEWS" in the first place? We believe we have a Maker who created us with the purpose of enjoying a loving relationship with Him. Unfortunately, because of our pride and self-centeredness - our wanting to be like god rather than worship God - sin entered the world inflicting its destruction on everything we know and hold dear. The greatest tragedy of sin is the loss of a transparent, authentic connection with the God who made us.
What do we mean by 'sin?' Sin is anything in our lives that takes priority over God. It always leads to pain, frustration, separation, and eventually death. We all feel the pain of sin because, in some way or another, we all fall short of God's highest intentions for our lives. Even "good" people who avoid the "big" sins are falling short of God's highest intentions.
When Jesus died on the cross, He provided a way back to a joyful, authentic, grace-filled relationship with God. This is what we were created to enjoy. You should know the only barrier remaining between you and an authentic relationship with your Maker is your unbelief about Jesus. The Bible says that, "God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people's sins against them." This means you can enjoy a restored relationship simply by believing that Jesus is who He says He is, and that He did what the Bible says He did. Jesus explained this in the wisest, simplest way possible when He said, "Anyone who believes in Me has life." Those seven simple words have changed millions of lives. We're not asking you to make promises and commitments to be a good person because they don't work. We're asking you to turn from self confidence to confidence in Jesus.
Once we make Jesus our point of confidence for real life, we begin a lifelong faith-based journey into a growing relationship with our loving Maker. It's a journey where we are learning to walk by faith in new ways each and every day. Good News Bible Church is a community of people who embrace this faith journey. Why don't you come and walk with us?
