A basic summary of God's plan of salvation for mankind: God has created us out of love. But our sin separates us from Him, and we are not capable of repairing this break on our own. Jesus the Messiah has come to reconcile us with God and give us eternal life. He has given us the Catholic Church through which he shares with us the way, the truth and the life. God calls us to repent, to choose to follow Jesus and to join ourselves to his Body, the Church.
