Key to Life - Our Need


Sin separates us from God. There is nothing that we can do, on our own, to bridge the gap, make our way back to God, and restore our relationship with him.

On our own, there's no way we can attain the perfection needed to bridge the gap to God. Through the ages, individuals have tried many ways...without success.

Good works won't do it...or religion...or money...or morality...or philosophy...

The Bible Says:

We are cut off by our sin from God who is Holy

Your sins have cut you off from God.

Isaiah 59:2




We are sinners by nature and by choice.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Rom 3:23



We cannot save ourselves.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast

Eph 2:8-9

We deserve death and hell.

For the wages of sin is death.

Rom 6:23a





It is true that: 
God is holy and just and must punish sin, yet he loves us and has provided forgiveness for our sin. Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by me. "John 14:6

The Good News is that God has provided for the forgiveness of our sins.
