The Gospel Message
- Everyone is a sinner; there are no exceptions (Ecclesiastes 7:20; 1 John 1:8-10; Romans 3:23).
- The punishment for sin is death, both physical and spiritual (Genesis 2:17; Romans 6:23; James 1:15). Spiritual death is a separation from God (Genesis 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2) also called the Second death (Revelation 21:8).
- God came to earth and lived in the form of Jesus the Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, and died both physically (John 19:30) and spiritually (Matthew 27:46) and in doing so, paid the penalty for the sins of all people.
- All people who accept Christ’s gift by believing, and are committed to Him, will not die spiritually (Romans 8:10) but will be alive with Him for all eternity (John 3:16, 5:24; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9).
Steps to becoming a Christian
- Admit your need of forgiveness
If we claim to be without sin we are only fooling ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins. (1 John 1:8-9)
- Believe in Jesus Christ
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:13)
- Commit yourself to God
Seek God’s will in all you do and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:6)

The markers that Luke provides regarding the time of Jesus’ birth, precludes the earlier date for Christ’s death. Against this, is the circumstantial evidence for the earlier date of Jesus’ birth supplied by Josephus. Luke has never been proved wrong.
Fossils of deceased creatures are not evidence of evolution. It is only the evolutionists and their artists who concoct the story.
The answer is that God controls world powers; He raises them up and He pulls them down. Jerusalem is central to God’s plan for mankind. It is from where Christ will reign during His millennium kingdom.
There exists a large body of archaeological evidence that confirms the authenticity of the people, places and events recorded in the Bible.
Recorded Chinese culture extends back to almost the Tower of Babel. A recent archaeological find confirms the truth of Genesis chapter 3 in an amazing, powerful and completely independent way.
God gave Abraham irrevocable promises concerning his descendants including the land of Canaan . The promise of the land was repeated many times to Abraham.
Scripture is continually being confirmed by archaeological discoveries. The writing on theTaylor and the other two prisms by an Assyrian king, runs parallel to that of scripture.

The accuracy of Daniel’s prophecy is astonishing. Remember the Rule of Thumb; Bible critics are always wrong.
This, third part of the series Genesis in Ancient Chinese Culture, shows very clearly how the events of Genesis had become embedded into ancient Chinese characters and even present-day characters as well.
A typical question directed at Christians in an effort to undermine their faith. But there is an answer.
The Moabite stone, despite its fractured past, revealed strong conformation of scripture and even produced a second mention of the House of David.
Although Christians are constantly accused of believing in a God they cannot see, believing in fairy tales and needing a psychological crutch to get them through, the fact remains as this article has shown, if you are a Bible-believing Christian, then science is on your side.
Why has there been such a desire to label the Bible account of the destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah and the other cities of the plain, a myth? Could it be that people do not like to think that there is an all-powerful God who will judge sin.
The Cosmological argument of cause and effect is a powerful philosophical tool, which is based on a universal law, applicable in all science and human experience. It leads to the conclusion that there must have been a Creator. But who created God?
Sir Fredrick Hoyle (astronomer) and Dr Chandra Wickramasinghe (mathematician), both evolutionists calculated the chances of biologically active proteins forming purely by chance from their constituent chemicals, which is what the Theory of Evolution, in its broad sense requires.
At present there are 5,656 parts of or complete Greek New Testament documents and no two are exactly identical …
The Bible specifies the dimensions of Noah’s Ark in cubits….
God gave the Law, including marriage restrictions to Moses about 3,500 years ago, the biological reason did not become apparent until the relatively recent science of genetics revealed it.
This miracle of Jesus is easy to skip over and to not realise the full extent of His blessing. But as this article shows, Jesus’ gift was enormous.
