KNOWING CHRIST

God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. He desires to have fellowship with you. However, your sin separates you from a holy and perfect God and you are unable to have a relationship with Him without the forgiveness of your sins. The Bible teaches about a literal, eternal heaven and a literal, eternal hell. You must choose Jesus to choose heaven. God is offering the invitation of a lifetime right now. Make the wise decision to read and accept His invitation of salvation today.

All have sinned (broken God’s laws) and fall short of the glory of God’s standard of holiness and perfection. (Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God loves you and desires to spend eternity with you in heaven even though you have sinned against Him. (John 3:16) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Jesus Christ, God’s Son, died for you on the cross so that you could be forgiven. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised up on the third day according to the Scriptures.

You must accept God’s forgiveness and trust Jesus Christ as your Savior to be saved. (Romans 10:9) If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

You are saved by God’s grace (undeserved favor) and His mercy, not because of good works. (Ephesians 2:8-9) For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

You must be willing to repent of your sins and live for God. In other words, you must be willing to turn from sin and turn to God. (Acts 2:38) Repent and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

You must be willing to take the first step of obedience as a new Christian through water baptism. (Matthew 28:19-20) Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

Pray this prayer from your heart: Dear Heavenly Father, I believe that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and I believe that He shed His precious blood so that I could be forgiven. I believe that He was buried in the grave and that He rose again from the dead. Forgive me God for all of my sins. I receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord. I am willing to live for You and I am making the choice right now to live a life of obedience to You. Fill me with the Holy Spirit and help me grow as a new Christian. I love You for saving me. I know that I am heaven bound. In Jesus’ name I pray…..Amen
