Advent Catechism

Advent Catechism, week 1:

In the beginning, God created everything, and it was perfect.
Deceived, humanity rebelled against God and continued to walk in brokeness.
God made a great promise to restore their relationship and atone for humanity’s sin.
So God sent men to share His promise — these men were called prophets.
The prophets proclaimed the promise of rescue, so God’s people waited in hope.

Scripture readings:

Genesis 1:1-5; John 1:1-5; Genesis 3:20-24
