God's Gift to You

The future is uncertain.
Many people don't know where to turn.
Can we find purpose for our life?
Can we find the strength for tough times?
Does anyone really care?
Yes!  There is Hope
   Jesus Christ was with God the Father before the world was created.  He became human and lived among humanity as Jesus of Nazareth.  He came to show us what God the Father is like.  He lived a sinless life, showing us how to live; and He died upon a cross to pay for our sins.  God then raised Him from the dead.
     Jesus is the source of eternal life.  Jesus wants to be the doorway to new life for you.  In the Bible He was called the "Lamb of God" (John 1:29).  In the Old Testament, sacrifices were made for the sins of the people.  Jesus became the sacrificial lamb offered for your sin.
     Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the father, but by me" (John 14:6).  He is waiting for you now.
     Admit to God that you are a sinner.  Repent, turning away from your sin.
     By faith receive Jesus Christ as Gods Son and accept Jesus' gift of forgiveness from sin.  He took the penalty for your sin by dying on the cross.
     Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
     You may pray a prayer similar to this as you call on God to save you:  "Dear God, I know that you love me.  I confess my sin and need of salvation.  I turn away from my sin and place my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord.  In Jesus' name I pray, amen."
     After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, show others your faith in Christ by asking for baptism by immersion as a public expression of your faith.  We would like to celebrate your new birth in Christ feel free to visit or join our church in worship and fellowship.
