God's Plan Of Salvation

Jesus is the One When sin entered the world of humanity through Adam, the relationship between God and man was broken. In order for restoration to occur, it became necessary to substitute the lifeblood of another.

Romans 3:23-24 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” (New International Version).

The apostle Peter states, “you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God” (1Peter 1:23). Jesus is the word of God, and his word is written on the heart of the born again
