The Gospel in a Nutshell
The Bible has been summed up into one verse, “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.”This is a key verse, but does it capture the full gospel message?

To answer that question we need to look at the word, gospel. It is important to say that, the Greek word " εὐαγγελίζω " (euaggellion), translated "gospel," means good tidings, good news, a good message. The Bible speaks of it as "the gospel of God," "the gospel of Christ," "the gospel of the kingdom," and frequently just "the gospel.” But what is this good message? 

To fully understand the profound that message of John 3:16, we have to start at the beginning. In the beginning God created everything from nothing (Genesis 1 and 2). Everything was perfectly done and harmonized. There was no sin! All creation was celebrating perfect life together. Everything related to each other in a perfect way.

When sin entered in the world, this harmony has broken, the fall happend! The perfect relationships between God, humans, animals, and the rest of the creation were damage. The first humans beings disobey the Creator (Genesis 3:6-7) bringing tension and discord among themselves throughout generations. Even death became a reality (Genesis 3:19). 

A need for a redeemer was greater than ever. After the fall, people could no longer redeem or save themselves. It was announced in the Person of Jesus Christ, God Himself would come to renew the world and restore His creation (Genesis 3:15; Ephesians 1:7; Galatians 3:13). The redemption was promised! 

And, the story does not end like that, the Creator promised to restore and harmonized everything again (Job 19:25-26). This restoration will happened when He comes again to judge the living and the dead. 

Meanwhile, Developing Our World and its partners will be sharing this story with more people, so they could be reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:18-21) and restored with God, themselves, others and with the rest of the creation again. 
Importance of Church in a Community
The church plays positive role in our lives. Churches in the life of the 21st-century devotee are basic since it fills a void in our hearts. Developing Our World helps people recognize that Church is the place individuals ought to go in the event that they need "inner peace" or maybe a “spiritual fix.” It is a place to receive the Gospel, the forgiveness of sins, and the salvation in Jesus Christ.

Build a School, Educate a Community
Schools signify aims and aspirations. Likewise, promoting knowledge and building schools represent hopes and goals for creating a better society – a better community. It promotes change in the nature of preparing and planning for the future. At Developing Our World, we believe that providing education to the child is an essential element for flourishing any society.
