Do you want to follow Jesus Christ?

There are several things that the Bible, the record of God's instructions, tell us that we must understand and believe. We have listed the bare essentials in the space below. It would always be a joy for us to be able to further explain any of these to you!

Everyone has sinned

Everyone has sinned.
All of us are born sinful and commit acts of sin every day.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23)

Fire of Hell symbolizes the torment being seperated from God

Because of our sin, we deserve death in Hell.
God is holy and cannot allow sin in to Heaven. The punishment for our sin is death (separation from God) in Hell forever.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

Try all you like, you won't meet God's perfect standard

We cannot save ourselves.
Christ is the only One Who can save us from our sin. Nothing we do can ever save us.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph. 2:8)

Jesus died in your place on the cross

Christ died to take the punishment for our sin.
Christ's death on the cross paid the penalty for our sin. He took our punishment for us.
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

You must choose to receive the gift

Salvation is a free gift that we receive by trusting Christ as our personal Savior.
We must personally trust Christ as our Savior and accept His death on the cross as the payment for our sin in order to be saved.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (Jn. 3:16).

Ask God and He will answer
Pray to receive Christ.

"Dear God,
I acknowledge that I have sinned against you and that the greatest need of my life is to be forgiven. Thank you for providing me with a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He is God the Son incarnate, that He lived a perfect life and died on the cross to pay the penalty of my sin, and that He rose from the dead. Lord Jesus, I place my complete trust in You and You alone. Come into my life and forgive me of my sin. Grant me eternal life and begin making me the kind of person you want me to be. Amen"

"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10 NKJV)

He is Risen!
