God cares, and teaches us:

1. We can know we have eternal life.

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life.” I John 5:13

2. We cannot gain eternal life by ourselves.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy He saved us.” Titus 3:5

3. We are all sinners.

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

4. Our sin condemns us to eternal death (hell).

“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23a

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14a

5. We have a Savior who died in our place.

“But God commended His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

6. You must receive Him.

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” John 1:12

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9

The above was written by Jeff Musgrave to be used in a tract by a small group of people starting a church in the Denver Colorado area in 1984. It is a simple and scriptural outline describing what one must understand and do (receive, believe) in order to become a Christian. If you have any questions about becoming a Christian, please come visit us at Helmers Street Baptist Church Sunday at 10am.

The gold color stands for heaven, or eternal life, the intended destination for every man, woman and child. The Bible describes the heavenly city as having streets of pure gold, “And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.” Revelation 21:21

The black color stands for sin, which brought death into the world, and made hell a destination for unbelievers. The Bible tells us that we are all sinners, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

The red color stands for the blood of Jesus, who died in our place to pay the penalty for our sin, no matter who we are. “Thou [Jesus] wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” Revelation 5:9

The white color stands for Jesus’ pure righteousness, which God gives to us when we believe in Him. The Bible says we cannot keep enough rules to deserve it, but that we can trust God for it: “But now the righteousness of God without the law… which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe.” Romans 3:21, 22

The green color stands for growth in our Christian life after we are saved. We are not perfect, but we are forgiven and grow in grace and knowledge. If you believe–put your trust in the Lord Jesus to save you–place your faith in Him, you are a Christian. The Bible says that we Christians should “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18

If you would like to know more about what the Bible says about getting to heaven, or if you are a Christian and want to know more about God, please join us at Helmers Street Baptist Church next Sunday morning at 10 am. You’ll find our address and a map on the front page of this site.

Charles Spurgeon, one of the most well known preachers in the world 150 years ago, is the first person we know of that used the wordless book to tell the good news that God loves us, and sent his son Jesus to save us from our sins. A couple of extra colors have been added over the years to the original black, red and white.
