Surrendering Your Life To Jesus Christ
you must repent of your sins. This includes confessing to God that you have sinned against Him, asking Him to forgive you of your sins, and asking Him to help you turn away from the sinful lifestyle of the past.
Read Luke 13:3, Matt. 3:2, and Matt. 4:17.
You must place your complete faith and trust in Jesus.
When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the penalty that our sins deserve and purchased our redemption. He paid the price. Therefore, eternal life is a gift, bought, and paid for by Him. It can only be received.
It cannot be earned or purchased because Jesus already did that.
Read Eph. 2:8-10.
You must surrender to Jesus as Lord of your life.
You must give up control of your life and let Jesus take control of your heart and life.
Read Rom. 14:7-9, Rev. 17:14, Jer. 17:9.
Would you open the door of your heart to Jesus right now and ask Him to come into your heart and life and save you and change you?
Read Rev. 3:20.
If you have trusted Jesus to be your Savior and Lord, you can be sure that…
– Your sin is forgiven.
– You are a Christian.
– You are a child of God.
– God will always be with you.
– You will go to heaven when you die.
What can you do now?
– Tell others that you are a Christian and that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
– Be baptized to show others that you have become a Christian.
– Attend a church regularly.
– Read the Bible and pray to God each day.
If you prayed and asked Jesus to become your Lord and Savior, we rejoice with you in that decision. If you would, drop us a line and let us know about your decision so that we might pray for you.
Here’s some questions to remember:
Will you ever sin again?
Yes. Everyone sins.
When you do sin, ask God to forgive you and to help you obey Him. Ask Him! He will!
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
Will you ever have to become a Christian again?
No. When you ask Jesus to be your Savior and Lord, salvation last forever. Remember this promise from God:
“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee..” Hebrews 13:5
Statement of Faith
Our beliefs are based on Jesus’ command “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ' Matthew 22:37-39
While our mission statement is breaking chains of addiction through our Lord Jesus Christ, it all centers around “Love God, Love People" Below we've explained a little more about what that means to us. If you want to know more about our doctrinal beliefs, you may want to read The Baptist Faith & Message ( https://bfm.sbc.net ).
We believe that God is the Creator of everything and that he exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 16:7-15; Hebrews 1:2-3
We believe that God created us to worship him and give him glory.
Isaiah 43:7, 21; Psalm 96:9; Matthew 4:10
We believe that sin has kept us from knowing God and worshipping him but that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, was physically resurrected, and now offers a restored relationship with God to all who believe in him.
John 3:16; Acts 2:22-39; Romans 3:21-24
We believe that salvation is a free gift given at God’s initiative and must be received personally by faith.
John 5:24; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9
We believe the Bible to be God’s Word, a true and fully accurate account of God’s love for us. Its purpose is to teach us how to have a relationship with him, worship him, and bring him glory.
Psalm 19:7-10; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
We believe that Jesus established his body on Earth in the church and that the church is a community that exists for the purpose of declaring the gospel and glory of Jesus throughout the world.
1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Colossians 1:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9
We believe the church is a family and that every believer should be identified with a local body of believers for the purpose of mutual encouragement, spiritual growth, and accountability.
Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 3:12-25; Hebrews 10:24-25
We believe that God cares about every need of every person and that the church, as Christ’s body, is to show his love and care for every person. Every member of the church is called to be a minister of the gospel through acts of loving service and a willingness to share the truth of the gospel with everyone at every opportunity.
John 13:34-35; 1 Peter 3:15; 1 Peter 4:8
We believe that the scope of God’s love is worldwide, and this church is committed to taking the gospel to the farthest and most unreached places of the world.
Isaiah 49:6; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 10:13-15; 1 Timothy 2:3-4
