That word is... "RESCUE!" 

The essence of the Bible and of Jesus revolves around two words... "GOOD NEWS."  The good news is that "While we were sinners and enemies of God, Christ died for us and made us friends of God." (Romans 5:8, 11) and that "He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels." (Isaiah 53:12)

It's amazing that, even though we have committed cosmic treason by sinning against a holy God, that same God loved us anyway, and provide His love by sending Jesus Christ, his only son, to take the punishment for sin that we deserved, while in exchange, giving us His perfect goodness and unconditional favor with God. "God made him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

The Bible tells us that we were lost, rebellious, and dead, separated from God and condemned in our sins with no ability to save ourselves (and that's really bad news)! "But God (good news!), who is rich in mercy, because of his great love for us, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in sin - it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." (Ephesians 2)  Now, THAT'S Good News!

How do we connect to the security, purpose, freedom, and joy that this Good News guarantees for us? Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." (John 6:29)

The Good News is our church's central message and is so essential to our lives that we named our church after it!  If you get nothing else from Good News Church GA, we hope you'll get this. :) 

In the attached PDF file, we've given an easy to understand explanation, as well as, a few quotes and Bible verses that should help answer the question, "What is the Good News?"

Lastly, if you have more questions or would just like to talk more about the Good News, Jesus, the Bible, etc., we're available to connect via email, phone, or in person over coffee, lunch, etc.  Feel free to reach out to either of us at or 

We hope this has been helpful!
