1. Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
The Bible says that all of us have broken God’s commandments, that, “There is none righteous, no not one.” (Romans 3:10) and “all have sinned” (Romans 3:23).
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.
Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the dead as payment for your sins. The Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Romans 10:9). Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
3. Change direction. Turn away from your sinful way of life.
The Bible says, “God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent (the word repent means to change direction, i.e. away from your sins), because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness” (Acts 17:30-31). You can have your sins forgiven and begin experiencing a relationship with God today. Pray something like this...
“Lord I realize that I am a sinner. I realize that I need your forgiveness. I believe that You paid the price for my sins on the cross. I believe that You rose again from the dead and want to have a relationship with me. Come into my life. Forgive me. Be my Lord. Be my God. I want to turn away from my sins and begin to follow You. Change me. Empower me with Your Holy Spirit to live my life for You in Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, and meant it, you’ve begun a relationship with Jesus Christ, and God has forgiven you of your sins.
We’d encourage you to...
A. Begin reading the Bible.
Try starting out with the Gospel of John.
We’d also encourage you to...
B. Begin going to a church that teaches through the Bible verse by verse.
We invite you to come and worship with us. If you have any questions about your relationship with Jesus, the Bible, or if we can be of help in any way, please call us.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, and authoritative word of God.
We believe there is one God who eternally exists in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the second person of the Holy Trinity, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death for the sins of the world, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again to judge the living and the dead and to establish God's kingdom of righteousness and peace on the earth.
We believe in the depravity of man. Man, in his essential being, is sinful and incapable of meriting God's favor.
We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith alone in the Person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
We believe in the sovereignty of God and the free will of man.
We believe that there is a baptism with the Holy Spirit that is subsequent to salvation.
We believe in the perpetuity of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and that the gifts of the Spirit are essential to fulfill Christ's purpose for the Church.
We believe that the Church exists to worship God, edify itself in love, and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
We believe in the sufficiency of the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit to supply us with all things that pertain to life and godliness.
We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of the Church, and the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to the earth.
