What it Means to be A Christian

For God so loved the
            World

 

What difference can Jesus make in my life? Making a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord is one of the most important decisions you could ever make. God Loves you and wants you to experience an abundant life in Him.

God Loves You
God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 1 John 4:9

I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10

All Are Guilty of Sin
The Bible tells us that every person in the world has sinned (disobeyed God).

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of
God’s glorious standard.
Romans 3:23

 

Because heaven is a perfect place, sin cannot enter there. Our sin separates us from god and must be punished. The "wages" or payment for sin is death; but God loves you and made a way for your sin debt to be paid.

For the wages (payment) of sin is death; but he gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23



Do you realize that God loves you even though you are a sinner?

 

That He Gave His only
begotten Son

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us
while we were still sinners.
Romans 5:8


God Proved His Love
God went beyond words to demonstrate how much he loved us by giving His only son Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to pay the penalty for your sin. He did this freely, by an act of His will by personal choice.


Jesus Christ is the Sinless Son of God
This abundant life and life eternal (heaven) is available to every person because Jesus Christ, though He never sinned, became your substitute.

He (Jesus) faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:14-15

The Bible says that Jesus was "made sin for us". Jesus Christ paid the penalty of sin (death) for us and made a way for us to be saved from our sin.

For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin,
so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
 2 Corinthians 5:21

 

Do You understand that God proved His love by giving Jesus Christ, His sinless son, to pay for your Sin?


That Whosoever
Believes in Him

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

 

Believing is NOT
Merely acknowledging that Jesus existed or that He was a good example.

Believing IS
Trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. You must have faith that He died for you, paid the price for your sin, and is the only way to Heaven and the life He promised.

Salvation is by Faith Not Good Works
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9

Regardless of whether or not you live a moral life, and are a good person, attend church or are baptized, you must believe in Jesus Christ alone for Salvation from sin. Many people think a person can earn the right to go to Heaven by doing more good things than bad. But , the Bible says that we cannot earn Salvation. God, in His mercy, gives Salvation to those who believe in Him.

He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:5

Do you understand that believing in Jesus Christ is the only way to have everlasting life (heaven)?

Should
not Perish


...He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 2 Peter 3:9
 

God Does Not Want Anyone to Perish
Every person is born a sinner and is separated from God. The word "perish" refers to a spiritual condition, eternal separation from God in Hell. Those who do not believe in Jesus Christ as Savior experience this eternal death when they die. But God offerers eternal life (heaven) as a free gift to anyone who believes in Him. He has made a way for you to have eternal life (heaven) by giving His son to pay for your sins.

Do you understand that believing on Jesus Christ is the only way to not perish?

But have
Everlasting Life

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. 1 John 5:11-12

You can believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior and have everlasting life today! You can express your belief in Him through prayer.


Pray Sincerely... Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner and that I deserve Hell. I believe you died on the cross, paid the penalty for my sin, and rose from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. I thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus' name. AMEN.

It's Great to Know!
Your assurance that God has saved you and have eternal life is based on God's unchanging Word. Believe on the lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Acts 16:31.

Jesus Will Never Leave You!
You can rest in the fact that Jesus Christ will never leave you. He said, I will never leave you, or forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
Once you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior, you cannot lose eternal life. It is forever settled and secure in the hand of God.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one. John 10:28-30

 


Making a Change to Experience Abundant Life is Up to You.
If you prayed this prayer, share your decision with our pastor. If you are not already attending church, find one in which you can worship and grow in your faith. 
Follow Christ's example, ask to be baptized as a public expression of your faith. God bless you in your decision.
