New life entered into this group of Gentiles.

All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name (Acts 10:43).

Caesarea is a beautiful seaside town in Israel. During the time of Jesus, it was the Roman capital of the province of Judea.
It’s most famous resident was Pontius Pilate. 
Decadence ruled the day in Caesarea. The Romans who lived there enjoyed “everything to excess”.
Because of this, very few Jews ever stepped foot in that town. They wanted nothing to do with the gross immorality of that place. Nor were they welcomed there by the Romans.
This makes Peter’s visit there remarkable.
He marched boldly into the town with one mission—to tell Cornelius, a Roman centurion, and his household the good news of Jesus.
Peter walked into Cornelius’s house, something Jewish law prohibited him from doing. The love of God was moving him forward. He stood in front of this Gentile group and he told them about Jesus, the one who was crucified and then raised to life. 
As he was speaking, new life entered into the hearts of these Gentiles. They received the Holy Spirit just like the Jews had on the day of Pentecost.
Peter was astonished. But he saw it with his own eyes. God did for these Gentiles exactly what he had done for the Jewish people. He saved them by grace.
In that immoral and decadent place, God made it known that anyone who called on the name of the Lord would be saved, whether Jew or Gentile.
And aren’t you glad that God sent Peter to this most unlikely place in all of Israel to share the Gospel? Because of this one event, the message of God’s love and grace, whether Jew or Gentile, has spread throughout the world.

Thank God that through Cornelius and his household, the Gentile world was exposed to the message of Jesus Christ. All are saved in the same way. That includes you. 

In Him,


Bob Christopher

About Bob Christopher, Bob Davis and Richard Peifer

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’s deepest desire was to be “God’s guy” and yet he struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life.

His "roller-coaster" experience in living the Christian life eventually led him to a bible study where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ.

Bob says: “Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. It’s a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth”.

Bob Davis: In the summer of 1977, at the age of 33, Bob Davis met the living Christ and invited Jesus to take control of his life. Much of his first five years in Christ found Bob attending Bible conferences and seminars, listening to Christian radio, and performing volunteer ministry services.

Bob spent many years in the fields of broadcasting and audio production for Christian radio and as a result of this work, the message of grace penetrated his heart and he embraced his new life in Christ.

Bob says: “I thank God I’ve had the opportunity to serve these many years. It has been an incredible journey of learning, growth, and opportunity for ministry.”

Richard Peifer: Born in Riverside, California and raised in the Seventh-day Adventist church, Richard grew up with a keen understanding of and desire to keep The Law. Even with a degree in Ministerial Studies, Richard had to face the truth – he knew lots of theological and biblical facts, but there was no reality of the abundant life Jesus promised. He left ministry and spent the next twenty-six years in the high tech industry.

During this time, Richard and his wife, Lois, studied to discover what they really believed. The more Richard learned about the love and grace of God, the more he wanted to help others leave the bondage of legalism and rest in the finished work of Christ Jesus.

Richard says: “This statement by James Ryle has been the undergirding message of my ministry: Grace is the empowering presence of God, enabling me to be who He has called me to be and to do what He has called me to do.”

Andrew Farley: Andrew is a member of the Basic Gospel board of directors, senior pastor of Ecclesia: Church Without Religion in Lubbock, Texas, and bestselling author of five Christian books. Andrew is a weekly contributing host of Basic Gospel and shares the life-changing message of the finished work of Jesus Christ in a calm, sometimes comical, always passionate way.

Andrew says: “Basic Gospel Radio proclaims the finished work of Jesus Christ and the beautiful, liberating implications of what it means for us to live under God’s new covenant of grace.”
