Trusting Jesus as Savior
God LOVES you, and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness. John 10:10
Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for his life. For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23
Jesus Christ is God’s ONLY provision for man’s sin. Through Him you can know and experience God’s love and plan for your life. Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6
We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives. I assure you, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. John 5:24
Baptism is important because it illustrates what happens in your life when you commit your life to Jesus and trust Him for your salvation. It’s also an act of obedience that follows the example of Jesus and identifies you with the church.
