Salvation Appeal

What is God's purpose?
The Road to life

Jesus said: "I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest" (John 10:10)
Since God planned for us to have peace and real life, why are so many people hurting and angry inside? For God so loved the people of the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never die (John 3:16)

What is our problem?
Sin separates us from God

From the days of Adam, we have chosen to disobey God's direction and go our way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery. The Bible says: All have sinned and fallen short of God's grace (Romans 3:23). The results of unforgiving sin is death. God's gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). The Bible says: Adam sinned and that sin brought death in to the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die (Romans 5:12).

What is the remedy?
The Cross of Calvary

The Bible says: There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God (I Timothy 2:5). Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God (I Peter 3:18). But God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful (Romans 5:8). God has provided the way, you must make the choice.

What is our response?
Give our life to Christ

The Bible says: That you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with all your heart that God has raised him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you only believe this (Romans 10:9-10)
Is there any good reason why you cannot turn your life over to Jesus Christ right now?

Giving your Life to Christ

How to give your life to Christ:

1. Admit you are a sinner and need God's forgiveness
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave
3. Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for him the rest of your life.


What to Pray:

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I have sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I believe that Jesus offers me forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Please forgive my sins and help me turn from them I now trust your promise, "That whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."


I will receive Jesus Christ as my savior and Lord. I commit myself to live for him and to allow him to live in me from the day in my life. In Jesus name Amen.


If you prayed that prayer, please send us an e-mail to let us know of your decision. We welcome you to the family of God, and would love to send you some literature to help you begin your walk with the Lord.


How you can know you are forgiven?
The Bible says: verily, Verily, I say unto you, he that hearth My word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.


What do I do now?
As you draw close to the Lord, He will teach you his ways and give you his strength. There are some practical steps you can take to come closer to God and allow him to guide you.


Prayer:
It is important to spend time in prayer every day. Just as you can not grow without eating food each day, so your spirit must be fed in order for growth to occur in our walk with the Lord. Prayer is simply talking to your heavenly Father.


Bible Reading:
The Bible is the main way to God has chosen to tell us about Himself. Learning what God says in the Bible is a very important part of your new life. A good place to start your study is in the gospel of John in the New Testament.


Fellowship:
When you gave your life to Jesus Christ, you became a vital part of the family of God and the church. As you get involved in a local church you will receive strength and encouragement from other believers.
