God’s “good news” turns us from our own vain

attempts to earn His pardon to Christ’s complete gift of salvation.

COME JUST AS YOU ARE!

Are you religious, but not right with God? Then

come to Him today—just as we all must approach God—as sinners in need of a Savior. You can pray to God right where you are, believing that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and claiming Him as your Savior. You can express your heartfelt trust in words like these:

“Dear God, I admit that I have been trying to get

to heaven my own way. Now I’m convinced that Jesus is the only way to heaven. I believe that He died in my place to take the judgment I deserve for my sins. I accept Your offer of forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. Thank You for helping me find the sure way to

Some people think that they are Christians

automatically because they had Christian parents. Others presume that attending church or being baptized or sharing in Communion makes them Christians. These are all important Christian responsibilities, but if people have never trusted in Christ alone for forgiveness of sins and salvation, their efforts are hopeless.

IT’S NOT A MATTER OF TRYING

The Bible—from beginning to end—teaches

God. Even leading a respectable life can never erase our sins. We all need a Savior, just as God says in the Bible: "all have sinned" (Romans 3:23).

IT’S ALL ABOUT GOD’S GIFT

The Bible teaches that salvation is God’s gift

which we don’t deserve and can never earn. Jesus taught that salvation is through faith in Him alone: “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47). The apostle Peter declared, “Through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43). The apostle Paul
