WE NEED SALVATION
Romans 3:23 "For
all have sinned, and fallen short of the
glory of God."
Romans 5:12 "Therefore, just as sin came
into the world through one man (Adam), and death through sin, and so
spread to all men because all sinned."
Romans 6:23a, "For the wages of sin is death;
GOD PROVIDED SALVATION
Romans 6:23b, "but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward
us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
WE CAN RECEIVE SALVATION
Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth
Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved."
Romans 10:13 "for everyone who calls on the name of the
Lord will be saved."
Romans 5:1 "Therefore, since we have been
justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord
Romans 8:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Romans 8:38 - 39 "For I am convinced
that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the
present nor the
future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else
in all creation, will be able to separate us from the
love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Classes For Adults

during the "9:09" service.
