About Us

Because we are imperfect, we can't keep God's perfectly holy law. This failure is called "sin": "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). And the penalty God requires for it is death: "For the wages of sin is death ..." (Romans 6:23).

In our eyes, we may be pretty good people, but in the eyes of the perfectly Holy God, we are criminals who broke His perfect law and deserve the death penalty (and when God judges us, He will judge us according to His law, not ours). This is the bad news.

What's the good news?

God loves us and didn't want to wipe us out. But neither could He simply turn a blind eye to our sins.

Why not?

Imagine someone you love has been murdered, the murderer has been convicted and stands before the judge in a courtroom. If the judge declares himself a merciful person and simply lets the murderer go free, would you consider the judge to be good and just?

To uphold justice, a judge must punish crime according to the law. Likewise, God, who is perfectly just, must punish sin according to His perfect law. Otherwise, He would be neither just nor perfect - i.e., "Holy."

So what did God do?

He hurled down the punishment required by His law - the death penalty - then stepped in front of us to take upon Himself the full brunt of that punishment, on the cross of Calvary.


Because He loves us, more than we deserve and more than we can imagine. If you truly believe this, that Jesus so loved you that He died on the cross to pay the death penalty due for your sins, you will live and have eternal life in heaven: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). This is the good news and the reason why Romans 6:23 above concludes, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord," as well as why the words that immediately follow Romans 3:23 above are: "being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed (Romans 3:24-25).

What if you don't believe that?

Then you will go to hell when you die, the Bible says, and burn forever to pay the penalty for your sins on your own: "The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:41-42)
