Knowing Christ

Our greatest desire for you is salvation.

The Church is a community of believers in Christ who trust wholeheartedly in Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins.

God Created You for a Purpose: God created man to honor, serve and fellowship with Him. “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things,and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)

Man Has a Problem - Sin: Man chose to sin against God rather than serve and glorify Him. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

The Penalty of Sin - Death: When man chose to disobey God, the result was death. The basic meaning of death is separation. The Bible teaches that there are three types of death, or separation, that result from sin. Spiritual death separates a person from the life of God. Physical death separates a person’s soul from his or her body. Eternal death separates a person, both body and soul, from God forever in hell. God declares in the Bible, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

Is salvation possible?: It is, but not by trying to earn or gain salvation on our own. God says, "For by grace you have been saved athrough faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

The Payment for Sin Is Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God, was sent by the Father to pay the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross in our place.The Bible says, “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God".(1 Peter 3:18a)

Turn and Trust to Receive the Gift of Salvation: God commands all men to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In order to receive God’s salvation, you must repent of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ alone as the only hope of salvation, God says, “Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.” (Acts 3:19) “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)

God Makes a Promise: Salvation is for all who will repent and believe. Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life..” (John 5:24)
