The Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ
In the Beginning
1. In the beginning God who created the heavens, the earth, the moon and stars also formed man in His image who became a living being. God planted a garden in Eden, and there He put the man (Adam). Man walked with God and had a relationship with Him.
2. Adam disobeyed God’s commands as a result, sin entered into creation. This sin separates us from God’s presence and God’s love. God’s Word tell us “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned’. We are born with a sinful nature. This is why there is so much chaos, suffering and injustices in the world. Things like murder, adultery, lying, stealing and more are the norm.
3. The Good News - While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. God’s sinless Son came to earth, died for our sins was buried and was raised on the 3rd day.
4. Believe this message and be SAVED from your sins and receive everlasting life.

Ready to Start a New Life Christ
Invite Jesus Christ into your life by saying the following from your heart.

- Confess those sins to be released from them. Say out loud if possible and mean it from your heart. Choose not to do them anymore. Then say “Father thank you for forgiving me of my sins. Take a deep breath and relax. Next… say
- I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the son of God, who died for my sins on the cross, was buried and rose again on the 3rd day. Pause and say...
- Thank you Jesus for saving me from my old lifestyle and paying for my sins. Thank you for a brand new life.
- Now you can ask for the Holy Spirit to live in you, see number 3.
Get Baptised in the Holy Spirit
To live a new life and follow Christ, God gives us the beautiful gift of His Holy Spirit. This is the same Holy Spirit that lived in Jesus Christ after His baptism. All the miracles that were done were through the Holy Spirit that lived in Him. This same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead can now live in you. This is the personal presence of God that dwells in us. He empowers us to live a new life for God. This usually follows repentance and the conversion by being ‘born again’ and water baptism.
Sometimes God will baptise with His Spirit at conversion, or when the person is being baptised in water. If you have gone through the previous steps, as a continuation – just ask Jesus Christ to send His Holy Spirit.
To Receive the Holy Spirit
Open your hands, palms facing up as if you are ready to receive a gift, take a deep breath – relax, smile and say "Come Holy Spirt" from your heart... wait a few minutes in expectation and believe that you have received Him, the Holy Spirit. Understand more here
