John 12:13    Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 

John 12:29-31    The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.   30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.   31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.   

John 12:32    And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.   

2 Corinthians 5:14     For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:   

Colossians 1:19-20    For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.   

1 Timothy 2:3-6   For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.   

1 Timothy 4:9-10    This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.   10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.   

Hebrews 2:9    But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.   

1 John 2:2    And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.  


In our place and on our behalf

Hebrews 2:12-13   Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.   13 And again, I will put my trust in him.  And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.    

Hebrews 2:14-18   Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.   17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.    18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. 

Hebrews 4:15    For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 

Hebrews 12:2    Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.   

Hebrews 2:11    For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,   

Hebrews 10:10    By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.   

Hebrews 10:14    For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.   

Hebrews 2:9   But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.   

Hebrews 5:1    For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:   

Hebrews 6:20    Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.   

Hebrews 7:25   Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.   

Hebrews 7:27    Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.   

Hebrews 9:7    But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:   


The response of faith

Ephesians 2:8   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:   

Romans 5:19    For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.   

1 Timothy 2:5    For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  


The role of human choice

What God has done in Christ to reconcile us to himself calls for a response.  We do so by trusting in him and what he has accomplished for us.

Our choice is to either affirm or deny the reality that God loves us and has made every provision for us to be his children.   Denial of this truth has consequences, but it will not change the reality of what God has done for us in Christ and thus who we are in Christ.

So what is our place in all of this?  We choose to accept Jesus and all he has to offer … or to reject him.  As we celebrate together in communities of faith and worship, our lives are transformed.


Personal response

Mark 1:15   And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. 

Acts 2:38   Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

Acts 3:19    Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.   

Romans 5:17     For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 

2 Corinthians 5:18-21   And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;   19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.   20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.   21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.   

Hebrews 4:2   For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.   

2 Peter 2:1   But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.   

2 Peter 3:9   The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.


What is our Christian mission?

  • Jesus’ life and ministry provides the motivation for every aspect of our life, including our participation in mission and ministry with Jesus.
  • The love of Christ compels us to take part in what Jesus is doing in the world through the Spirit.  Out of love we declare the gospel and invite all people to receive and embrace it.
  • In doing so, we hope what is true of them already in Christ will be experienced by them personally in faith.
  • Like Jesus, we desire all to participate and receive all the benefits of Christ now.
  • Then they, too, can join in Jesus’ ongoing mission to draw others into a living relationship with their Lord and Savior.  What greater joy and privilege could there be?
  • Our participation now in Jesus’ love and life bears good fruit and personal joy that stretch into eternity.
  • As we welcome the truth of the gospel, we can’t help but worship our Lord and Savior!


Key Points of Trinitarian Theology 

Following are some basic precepts of the theology presented in this booklet.

  • The Triune God created all people through the Son of God, who also is known as the Word of God.
  • We were created so that we could participate in the love relationship enjoyed by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • We are enabled and qualified to participate in this relationship of love through Jesus Christ.
  • The Son became human, the man Jesus Christ, taking on our human nature.
  • He did this to reconcile all humanity to God through his birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension.
  • The crucified, resurrected and glorified Jesus is the representative and the substitute for all humanity.
  • As Savior and Lord of all humanity, Jesus now sits at the right hand of the Father, and he draws all people to himself by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • In Christ, humanity is loved and accepted by the Father.
  • Jesus Christ paid for all our sins — past, present and future — and there is no longer any debt to pay.
  • The Father has in Christ forgiven all our sins, and he eagerly desires that we receive his forgiveness.
  • We can enjoy his love only as we believe/trust that he loves us.  We can enjoy his forgiveness only when we believe/trust he has forgiven us.
  • When we respond to the Spirit by turning to God, believing the good news and picking up our cross and following Jesus, the Spirit leads us into the transformed life of the kingdom of God.
