We believe that God created the world and everything in it, including you. He wants to begin a personal one-on-one relationship with you today. We believe the message of Jesus is not too complicated; believe and trust. Believe God is who He says He is and trust Him with your life by allowing Him to lead you. We know God has a bright future in store for your life and we would love to help find the next step God has for you.
God's Plan to Save Us
Gods Purpose: Eternal Life
God loves you and created you for a purpose: to know Him and have a personal, eternal relationship with Him.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
People’s Problem: Sin and Separation
People miss the life God intends for them because they choose to go their own way and fall short of his perfect standard. Defying God in this way is called sin, and it separates us from God and prevents us from having a relationship with Him. In fact, sin is so radically opposed to God‘s perfect character that it requires the most extreme penalty: death and eternal separation from God.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
God‘s solution: Jesus Christ
We cannot make our way to God through our own imperfect efforts. So God Himself chose to provide the perfect payment for sin. He sent his son, Jesus, to die in our place, bringing the gap between Himself and humanity. We can only come to God on his terms.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit” (1 Peter 3:18)
“Jesus said to Him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Your Personal Response: Confession and Faith
You must personally respond to Jesus sacrifice by turning from your old sinful life and trusting Him to give you a new life. Salvation through Christ is a free gift. Excepting it is an act of faith.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”. (1 John 1:9)
A Prayer of Salvation
If you are ready to trust Jesus with your life, pray something like this:
Lord Jesus, I’ve gone my own way and sinned against you. Have mercy on me and forgive my sin. I believe you are God's Son who died in my place, then rose from the dead with the power and authority to give me new life. Thank you for making me a child of God. I now surrender my life to you and your purposes. Give me, by your Holy Spirit, the boldness to confess my faith in you to others. I ask this in your name, Jesus. Amen.
What now? Here are your next steps.
Tell someone. This helps confirm your decision and can inspire you to demonstrate a real change.
Start praying. This helps you grow in your relationship with God and keep you connected to his power in guidance.
Read the Bible. This helps you get to know God better and to discover his plans for your life.
Get involved. Becoming active in a strong Bible-based church can help you grow spiritually, provide accountability and allow you to use your unique gifts to honor God and help others.
Be Baptized. Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
