1 Timothy 1:15
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.

Why did Jesus come? Over and over again the gospel record clearly says that Jesus came into the world with one central purpose: to minister and to give His life as a ransom for all who would accept Him.

One of the most dangerous and hostile places in the world for Christian workers is located in northwest China. One notorious Muslim ethnic group controls the drug trade in that part of Asia, and is well known for fanatical Islam. A little over a year ago, Asia Harvest received a picture showing the first-ever Christian fellowship in this ethnic group. The picture showed these former Muslims, now redeemed by the blood of Jesus, intently studying the Bible together.
