What We Believe
GOD LOVES YOU & HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
God’s Love…“God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not be lost, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
OUR SIN STANDS IN THE WAY OF GOD’S PURPOSE.
Our Sin…“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
Our Separation…“For the wages of sin is death...” (Romans 6:23).
Sin costs! Its ultimate cost is death and an eternity apart from God. But God has provided a way for us to experience forgiveness of that sin, an abundant life on earth, and everlasting life in heaven.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY OF SALVATION.
The Way… “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” (John 14:6).
How It Was Done… He was delivered over to death on the cross for our sins. He paid the price for us. His resurrection from the dead is the promise of new life. (See Romans 4:25 & Romans 6:8-10).
WE MUST RESPOND IN FAITH TO JESUS.
My Part… It is not enough just to know the facts about Jesus. We must establish a relationship with Him by receiving Him. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” (John 1:12, NAS) How to Receive Him… Pray the prayer below.
“For whoever will call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13, NAS)
"Lord, thank You for loving me and coming to earth to show me the way. I believe You died to pay for my sin and You were raised from the dead to give me life with You. I want to turn from my sin and my old life and place my trust in You right now. Please come into my life and be my Savior and the Master of my life. Show me how to live and help me to follow You always. In Jesus name I pray. Amen."
