You are welcome to join us here at Messiah to learn from Holy Scriptures about sin and repentance, and also God’s gifts of forgiveness and eternal life through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Sin – “…all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Repentance – “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:8, 9)
Forgiveness – “In Him (Jesus Christ) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” (Ephesians 1:7)
Eternal Life – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
