"It is a life changing relationship, Not an empty religion."
"How does the death of a man named Jesus, who claimed to be God, two thousand years ago have anything to do with me?" If you have heard about Jesus and Christianity you have probably asked yourself this question before. The answer is that his death changed things and two thousand years later we are still talking about it. And we believe that Christ wants to change you to.
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."
The death of Jesus on the cross gives us an opportunity to be put into a right relationship with God. Our sin has separated us from God, but He loved us so much that he sent His son, Jesus Christ, who lived his entire life without sinning, to die on the cross for all of our sin. That is why it is much more than one man dying on a cross. It is God restoring us to Himself and the good He has planned for us out of His love for us.
So what must I do?
The good news is that accepting Christ as your Savior and being put into a right relationship with God is not a complicated process. It isn't about doing religious activities and it isn't about being perfect.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
On the cross, Christ took all of our sin and gave us his perfection. It’s as simple as repenting of your sin, committing to follow Jesus, and believing He is who He says He is. It is not just saying a prayer, going to church, or calling yourself a Christian and doing religious things. It is the beginning of a relationship that will change your entire life as you experience God's love and the plans He has for you.
If you have made a decision to follow Jesus or have any questions we would love to talk with you about it. Stop by this Sunday or give us a call at 252-635-1194.
