Faith City

A Savior Is Born!
Theme: 
We know Jesus is the Messiah because He fulfilled Old Testament prophecies, and God loved us so much that He sent His only Son to save us.

Scripture References: 
Matthew 1, Luke 1, John 1:1-18, 9:1-7, 40-66, Matthew 2, Luke 2, Micah 5:2

Memory Verses: 
“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.” John 3:16

Application: 
Jesus is God’s Son, sent to save us! Like Jesus, we should grow mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially.

God’s Plan: 
Inspired prophets foretold of God’s coming Son, the Messiah, who would save mankind. Jesus’ birth fulfilled God’s plan of salvation.
