Summary of Christianity

Jesus created the world and is saving it from self-destruction. If you call out to Jesus in love, you will be saved from this. God’s purpose for you is to spread Jesus’ message of love and truth.

Can politics and science save us? Humanity’s tribalistic instinct causes us to defend our own kind at all costs, even by killing others. Can doing more good than bad save us? Not knowing the definition of “good” causes us to war over limited resources. Jesus is the only Person to prove his sinlessness (Hebrews 4:15) and defeat death by resurrecting Himself (I Corinthians 15:4-6). He claims to have a solution for the greatest problem of all: how do we stop these wars and evil?

If you “call on the name of the Lord” in love (Matthew 22:37-38) and not hate (Matthew 8:29; Luke 4:41), you will be saved from your sins and eternal separation from God (Romans 10:13). Truly calling out to Jesus as Lord means accepting His gift of grace without one’s own works (Ephesians 2:8-9) by having faith (John 1:12) that if we repent of our sins, we will become a more righteous person (I John 1:9) ready to do the good works we were created for (Ephesians 2:10). The simplest summary of the Gospel of Salvation in the Bible is found in Titus 3:3-8. Read more…

The sinless Jesus can’t be accused by God (John 8:46-47; Hebrews 4:15); but, what does it mean to “call on His name” (Romans 10:9-13)? Ultimately, our confidence in respecting Jesus is simply obeying Him (John 15:14; Matthew 7:21). Obedience is not about being good enough (I John 1:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; James 2:10): it’s about wanting full adherence (Romans 7:16-17) to the point where you sin less and less (I John 5:17-18). If you keep desiring obedience, your faith in God’s strength will allow you succeed until your heart no longer condemns you (I John 3:21-22). Read more…

God’s purpose for everyone’s life is about glorifying God (I Corinthians 10:31). The first step is to be “discipled” (Matthew 28:18-20). You can use our guide or find someone in your church to help. As you grow in character, you must also find your spiritual gifts and help people that God is calling you to help (James 1:27; I John 3:18).
