We have good news!

How can Jesus really help me?

Our world is full of frustration, disappointment, and bad news. God knew this would be the case and He gave us good news through His son Jesus to help us in our every day lives. 

You can have a new beginning.

Did you know that God has never loved you any more or any less that He does right now?

God has a perfect plan for your life and wants to help you overcome all the pain and failure of your past so that you can have a new life in Christ.

Recognize the Problem

Often our biggest mistake when we can't find our way is that we don't want to admit we are lost! We wander around looking for answers or solutions, but never truly admit there is a problem or ask for help.

 In order to find the way to a new life with God, we must admit we are lost in sin.  Romans 3:23 in the Bible says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Sin is any act contrary to God's laws and commandments, and those sins that I have committed separate me from God. 

The Bible goes on to tell us in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The "wage" or payment for our sin is spiritual death and eternal separation from God.

Religion and Good Works Are Not the Answer

Many religions try to create their own ways to God. Their systems may seem logical, but they cannot bridge the gap created by our sin. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” In other words, this is not something that we can figure out on our own.

God’s Word, the Bible, provides true answers of grace and forgiveness. In Ephesians 2:8-9 the Bible says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."

The Good News: Jesus Christ Provides the Way!

God created us all and has always loved us deeply—even at our worst. He loved us so much that He provided a path back from our lost ways.

God sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross and pay the price for our sins. Then on the third day, He miraculously rose from the dead. John 3:16 explains, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, He became the payment for our sin and the path to our new life in God. By His grace, salvation is provided. In Romans 5:8, the Bible says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Believe and Receive Jesus Christ

In order to have a relationship with God and an eternal home in Heaven, we must put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone.

In Roman 10:9 the Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” That is a promise directly from God. We simply have to take Him at His word. 

If we are willing to surrender our lives to Him and ask Him to forgive us of our sins, then He will give us eternal life and a new start today!

You can make that decision today by praying from your heart, something like this:
Dear God, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have sinned and lived my life without You. I am sorry and I trust that You will forgive me. I accept Your love and grace for me and ask that You would be my Lord. Help me believe in You and love You every day, and help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is. In Jesus’ name, amen.

While the words of a prayer don't save anyone, a surrendered heart to Jesus does. 

If you have just trusted Christ, we would love to know about your decision and give you a Bible and some other materials to help you learn more about that new relationship! Click the button below to connect with us.
