Forgiveness Is Possible

The road to forgiveness can be long and hard, but through God’s loving guidance it is possible.

The Spiritual Need to Forgive Others

Forgiveness does not come easily for most of us. Our natural instinct is to recoil in self-protection, retaliation and revenge. We don’t naturally overflow with mercy, grace and forgiveness when we are wronged.

How is sin forgiven?

Who pays the penalty for sin, making forgiveness possible?

Baptism’s role in repentance and forgiveness

Where does baptism fit in with the grace of God and Jesus?

God Can and Will Forgive You

Our repentance and God’s merciful forgiveness are both necessary, complementary parts of the overall salvation process.

Jesus Christ’s perfect love and sacrifice

No matter what our background or past mistakes, when we genuinely repent and are baptized, God promises complete forgiveness.

Burying the past

Realizing how complete forgiveness is possible through Christ’s perfect sacrifice, we must look ahead to maintaining the right course.

Live a New Life in Christ

You can have the power to overcome and grow spiritually if you seek God with your whole heart and submit yourself to His incredible will for your life.
