Jesus Christ is the Only Person Who Can Give Us Life

BG hear


And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life (1 John 5:11-12).

BG believe


Life is found in Jesus Christ–nowhere else. It’s that simple and that clear. This is a sticking point for many people. They claim there is more than one way to God. But it misses the point. Our need is life. Jesus is the only person who can give us life. As Paul noted in his defense of the resurrection, Jesus is "a life-giving spirit" (1 Corinthians 15:45).

If you are struggling with this idea, maybe this illustration will help. Cancer is a horrible disease. Research teams all over the world are feverishly working to find a cure. Let’s say that a research team in Chicago discovers the cure. They develop a drug and have exclusive rights to administer it to any person willing to travel to their facilities.

What would you tell someone who had cancer? "If you want to be cured, go to Chicago."

"Well, what about all those fine research teams in Atlanta, London, and Hong Kong?"

"They may be doing fine work, but they don’t have the cure for cancer. There is only one place to go, and that is to the cancer research facility in Chicago. Those who go get cured. Those who don’t go there don’t get cured."

Jesus couldn’t have said it any clearer. "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). He is the way out of death into life. He is the way out of darkness into light. He is the cure the world needs.

BG live


Here is the good news. If you have confessed with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and have believed in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you too have crossed over from death to life. You have received the cure!

In Him,


Bob Christopher

About Basic Gospel: Just a Minute!

Hear it. Believe it. Live it.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, powerful, and life changing. It declares the love of God for mankind. It is the good news people long to hear. Radio delivers it straight to the heart.

But it is not enough just to hear the good news. God wants to make His love a reality in our lives. He wants us to believe it and live it.

At Basic Gospel, we are dedicated to proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ and the profound simplicity of His love and grace.

Our hope is that the clear presentation of the Basic Gospel and the singular focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ will anchor listeners to the love of God and will encourage them Covenant life that is theirs in Christ.

About Bob Christopher

Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Bob grew up in a Christian home and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 13. During his high school and college years, Bob struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life. His "roller-coaster" experience taught him that he didn't have what it took to be "God's guy."

After college Bob attended a Bible study in Atlanta where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ. Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. Witnessing God give new life to an elderly gentleman before he died put in Bob's heart a passion to share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible.

During his 30 year ministry, Bob has communicated the truth of the New Covenant in a way that is both practical and easy to apply to everyday life. "The Gospel is more than a message," Bob says. "It is a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth." Bob is passionate about the basic truths of Christianity, and deeply encouraged by those who are courageous enough to apply them in daily life.

Bob is the author of Simple Gospel, Simply Grace, released by Harvest House Publishers August 1, 2015 and Love is..., published by Basic Gospel. Bob and his wife, Jeanna, live in Denton, Texas, with their children, Caitlin, Coleman, and McKenzie.
