So Jesus said to those who believed in him, “If you obey my teaching, you really are my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 GNT).
The core message of the Christian faith - the Gospel - is that Jesus Christ rescues us from the slavery of sin and offers true freedom in this life and beyond.
The Good News - the best news ever - is that faith in Jesus frees us from the death we deserve for sinning against God. It frees us from the punishment that would be put upon us at the end of our lives for the evil things we’ve thought and done.
As believers, we still battle with sin, but we are no longer slaves to it. Through the power of Christ, God’s people can be set free from the bondage of greed, vanity, pride, pornography, addiction, abusive behavior, gluttony, selfishness - and any other sin under the sun.
God has made the way for us to be free. Now is the time to be set free from the bondage of sin and proclaim to everyone that through Christ, salvation has come!
"If you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you are free."
- Dwight L. Moody
