In Short


We are born sinful.

“Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”
Psalm 51:5

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins…Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.”
Ephesians 2:1,3

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23


God forgives us through Jesus.

“God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

“When you were dead in your sins…God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins.”
Colossians 2:13

“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


We can live a new life through the Holy Spirit.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17

“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”
Titus 2:11-14
