Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.
By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 1 Corinthians 15:1-5
JW believes that God has never given up on humankind. He sent his son Jesus to get it all right again. This is a time for thankfulness in that we are destined for eternity with God in his Kingdom... if we believe.
