Playing a Part in Lives Transformed by Jesus Christ…

Believing in Jesus and following Him will transform your life…Forever!

Jesus said: “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” John 10:10. That’s available to you. Your life will never be perfect this side of eternity. But, your life will never be better than when you are seeking a growing relationship with God through believing in and following Jesus Christ, and living out your faith on God’s terms the way He intended.

That’s where it all starts!

God loves you, and He has a plan for your life…

There is one true God. He created humankind, and designed us with purpose and direction. And knowing God and being in relationship with Him is the only way to have real peace, purpose, happiness, and fulfillment in your life.

The Bible says…“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11).

 

The problem is people naturally sin, and are separated from God…

The Bible says…“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Rebelling against God, doing things our own way instead of His way, doing, thinking, or saying bad things, whatever it is. In one way or another, we all sin. Because we are not perfect. This results in broken relationship with God.

 

Jesus paid the price for your sins…

The Bible says…“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” Jesus was crucified on a cross, and died for the sins of the world – including yours. He was buried. And God raised Him from the dead on the third day – a risen Savior, and He still lives!

 

You gain forgiveness of sin and relationship with God through Jesus…

Jesus is the only way to God. He said “…I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6). To have your sins forgiven and get right with God, and start living the kind of life that God intended for you to live, you need to…

  • Turn to God, and acknowledge that you have sinned, and agree to do things His way – this is repentance.
  • And believe in His Son Jesus Christ, put your faith in Him for the forgiveness of your sins and your salvation, and choose to follow Him as Lord.

 

To make this decision right now, pray this prayer and mean it in your heart…

Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, I turn from doing things only my own way, and I turn to You. I believe that You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, that He went to the cross and died for my sins, and that You raised Him to life. I put my faith in Him today for the forgiveness of my sins and for my salvation, and I want to follow Him as the Lord of my life. I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
