For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish
but have eternal life.
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
"I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
For all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith
and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God
In the beginning God created the heavens
and the earth.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth."
2. Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is God-breathed
and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
"Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ
for the forgiveness of your sins.
And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
The true light that gives light to everyone
was coming into the world.
Then God said,
"Let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness,
so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock
and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy,
to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God
- this is true worship.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Then Jesus came to them and said,
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."
"Very truly I tell you,
no one can see the kingdom of God
without being born again."
He said to them,
"Go into all the world
and preach the gospel to all creation."
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full.
The Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory,
the glory of the one and only Son,
who came from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
