Sin is any thought, motive or deed that goes against God. Adam and Eve were morally perfect in the Garden and after they rebelled, moral imperfection was born. Sin has impacted every relationship in creation. It broke our fellowship with God as well as with each other and with all creation. It even shifted how we relate to ourselves. The consequence for sin is death, which has become a normal part of our lives. Our problem as humanity is sin. We lost everything and now we are helpless to do anything about it.
We Lost It All

We Get It All
Ephesians 2:1-10 • May 19, 2019 • Bob Evans
The Gospel means the Good News. It’s God’s plan to rescue us from our hopeless condition by sending Jesus to live the life we couldn’t live and die the death we deserved. But most people, including many in our churches, don’t understand the message of the Gospel. God made it all. We lost it all. Christ did it all. We get it all. How is it that “we get it all”? Today, we wrap up our Gospel series by looking at a passage that instructs us to possess the benefits of all Christ did for us.
He Did It All
Various Passages • May 12, 2019 • David McNeely, Senior Pastor
Everyone faces eternal death and judgment. Nothing less than perfection in thought, word, action, even motive can fix the problem. So who can rescue us? Only God. Jesus claimed to be God and the only Way a person can be made right with God again. He came to earth, fulfilled all of God’s laws by His life, and received all the punishment of our sin by His death. But then He came back to life as proof of His claims. His life and death are now a substitute for anyone who trusts in Him. Jesus did everything required for salvation. Nothing we do—good deeds, religious duties, etc—can be added to His perfection.
He Made It All
Acts 17:22-29 • April 27, 2019 • David McNeely
The term “gospel” is used so often that many of us don't know what the gospel actually is. We know it technically means good news, but several questions come to mind. What is this good news? Good news for who? What is the bad news? Why should it matter to me? Many of us simply do not know what the gospel is. The gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ, and it all starts with God. This first week we look at the fundamental question of mankind: Why are we here?
