What is the good news about Jesus?

The good news about Jesus is summed up in this Bible verse, Jonh 3.16: ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.’ People are perishing because we’ve rejected God’s rule over our lives. However, God sent Jesus to rescue us. Jesus died on a cross to pay our penalty for rejecting God’s rule before rising in victory over death. So now, if we welcome Jesus as our rescuer and ruler, we receive God’s forgiveness and eternal life. If you’d like to know more about this good news, here are some ideas:

How do we bring the good news

The mission of Broome Anglican Church involves five basic activities:

• Engaging the community;
• Evangelising our contacts;
• Establishing new believers;
• Equipping for ministry; and
• Exporting gospel resources.

We carry out these activities through a range of ministries, including include Sunday services, weekly Growth Groups and Youth Group.

As an Anglican Church, we operate in alignment with the thirty-nine Articles of Religion. We also acknowledge the Jerusalem Declaration of the Global Anglican Future Conference as an expression of genuine Anglican Christianity.
