In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. He created man—male and female—in his image. He created man to rule the world wisely in his image.

Read Genesis 1 to see these truths described in greater detail.



Man fell into sin by disobeying God’s law, and their sin disrupted their relationship with God. It brought death both to them and to the creation that God had placed under their care.

Read Genesis 3 and Romans 8:18–25 to see these truths described in greater detail.


God promised immediately after man’s sin to send a redeemer. And at great cost he did: he sent his Son, Jesus. Born as a man, of the family of Abraham and David, Jesus came to save his people from their sins. He lived the perfect life no other human has ever lived, and he died a substitutionary death for the world’s sins the way only God could do. But Jesus did not stay dead. He rose from the dead three days later and now sits at God’s right hand.

Read Romans 3, especially verses 21–26.


Jesus preached a simple message, and the message about him—the gospel—remains the same today: “Repent and believe.” Turn from you sins and believe that Jesus died for those sins—and rose again to conquer death.
