Bill Bright's Four Spiritual Laws
In the mid-1960s,
Bill Bright -- then president of the Campus Crusade for Christ -- formulated the Four Spiritual Laws. They have since become
the standard model for conversion for the branches of Christianity that maintain that Jesus Christ "stands at the door and knocks,"
but the individual must open the door and invite him into his or her life.
- God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life (John 3:16; 10:10).
- Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life
(Rom. 3:23; 6:23).
- Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through him you can know and experience God's love and plan
for your life (Rom. 5:8; 1 Cor. 15:3 - 6; John 14:6).
- We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and
plan for our lives (John 1:12; 3:1 - 8; Eph. 2:8 - 9; Rev. 3:20).
