Do you yearn to live? Do you desire to know why you were created? Do you wish to accept the inheritance that God has for you? Here’s how you become a part of the family of God.

My friend, you matter to God! He created you in His image with the power to live forever and have dominion over the earth. However, when Adam disobeyed God, this disobedience (sin) separated you from God. Since God established in the beginning, the wage of sin is death, every human born of Adam (everyone) was sentenced to death. But thank God for Jesus! Because God loved you so much, He sent Himself in the form of a man to take your place. Only Jesus had the power to lay down His life and take it up again. Because Jesus died and rose, he conquered death and has given you the opportunity to reclaim the gift of eternal life.

Jesus told Nicodemus, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:1-7).” Born-again represents the “new spiritual birth” in Jesus Christ. In other words, Jesus explained to Nicodemus that unless a man is born of His Spirit, it’s impossible for him to understand the Kingdom of God, or God’s way of doing things. Without knowing God, your Creator, you can’t know why you were created. And unfortunately, if you don’t know the purpose of something, you’ll abuse it.

So, today is your day! Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me” (John 14:6). The only way to receive the gift of eternal life is by accepting Jesus Christ into your heart. His love for you is extended in the form of this gift. There is nothing that you can ever do to earn or lose it: not goodness, failures, success, nor mistakes (past, present, or future).

PLAN OF SALVATION

  • 1. Hear the Word of God. At some point in your life, you have heard/will hear the Word of God - i.e. Preacher, Friend, Family member, on TV, on Radio. (Acts 2:14-36).
  • 2. Receive the gift of faith. As soon as you hear the Word of God, God gives you the gift of faith to believe what you've heard (Acts 2:37).
  • 3. Repent. In the Bible, the word “repent” means to "change your mind." The Bible also tells us that true repentance will result in a change of actions (Acts 2:38).
  • 4. Receive the Holy Spirit. “Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (I Samuel 16:7). God recognizes your true heart to turn from sin and follow Him. At this point, He pours His spirit into you (Acts 2:38).
  • 5. Water baptism. This is an outward representation of what God has already done. The water represents the cleansing of sins (Acts 2:41-47).

PRAYER OF REPENTANCE

"Dear Heavenly Father: I confess that I’m a sinner, but I believe that you are my Savior. Lord Jesus, I believe you died on the cross for my sins and I believe on the third day you arose with the victory, and that you’re seated now in Heaven on the right hand of the Father. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, wash me in your blood, and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Rule and reign for the rest of my life. Lord I believe you hear me, and I believe you’ve answered me. Thank you for saving me! Thank you washing me! Thank you for loving me!"

If you sincerely prayed this prayer, praise God, you are saved..a new individual in Jesus Christ! The awesome thing about being born-again is that God now views you through His son Jesus Christ. He no longer recognizes you as a sinner (as matter of fact, He can't even remember your sins) but you are now the Righteousness of God! This means that you have access to all of the riches of the Kingdom of God.

We encourage you to:

  • 1. Study the Word of God. Begin with the 4 gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to learn about discipleship (following Jesus Christ).
  • 2. Ask the Lord to lead you to a local church that teaches pure, unfiltered, Biblical truth.
  • 3. Let the Pastor know that you’ve given your life to the Lord so that he, along with his staff, can help you grow in the Word of God. It's so important to have a Pastor!
  • 4. Spend time with “eagles,” people who will both challenge and encourage you to live a holy and prosperous life in Jesus Christ.
  • 5. Last, tell somebody about Jesus Christ and how He made a difference in your life!

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY OF GOD!

Spotlight Scripture

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).
