The Bible teaches us that we were all created for the purpose of loving God and living in fellowship with him. But by our nature, and because of sin, we have chosen to reject that fellowship with God. As a result, we are naturally separated from God and destined for eternal punishment. Yet God, in his rich mercy and great love, sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross and pay the penalty for sin that we deserve. As a result, by God's grace alone, we can be reconciled to God and have the relationship with him we were created to have.
We must accept that gift of salvation through faith. This means we must believe that Jesus is God and that he has provided salvation for us by his death and resurrection. Then we must turn from our sins. Finally, we must trust in Jesus Christ alone for our salvation.
