A Church Where You're Always Welcome
A Message of Hope...
One of the greatest gifts God offers to people is
hope. Without hope, life becomes meaningless, and
dreams of a better future fade into a dark, grim
Hope is the intangible factor that breathes life
into a world that desperately needs it. Hope is a
gift from God offered to every person on the
planet. This hope is not merely temporary
happiness; it is inexhaustible joy abound in the
person of God's Son - Jesus Christ. God's Word
says, "Blessed be the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his
abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead. To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you" (I Peter 1:3-4).
God has made a way for us to find the hope
that is essential to an abundant life. We must, however
realize that as humans we sin, and this sin separates us
from God. Yet His love is so great and His grace so
immense that He made a way for our sins to be forgiven,
offering forgiveness and salvation freely.
The Bible makes it very clear that God
loved us so much that He sent His only Son to pay for our
sin. God's Word says, "For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John
3:16). The price God's Son had to pay was to die a
horrific death on a cruel Roman cross, shedding His blood
and dying for us. We can find forgiveness of our sin
through faith in the person of Jesus Christ who died for
our sin and rose from the grave.
Imagine the hope that is infused into the
life of someone who receives Jesus Christ as Savior and
Lord! God promises eternal life to everyone who believes
in Him, but without God there is no real hope; there is no
future. With God we have "hope of eternal life which
God...promised before the world began" (Titus 1:2).
The hope of eternal life is available for
all of us. This hope comes when we acknowledge our
sinfulness and our need for the Savior - Jesus Christ.
Will you pray, right now, and ask God to
save you from your sin? Say this prayer: Lord Jesus, I am
a sinner. Please forgive me of my sin. I want the hope of
eternal life that can only be found in You, and right now
I receive You as my Lord and Savior. I trust in You alone
for my salvation, believing that You died and rose again
from the grave. Thank You for saving me.
|A Message of Faith...
When life becomes confusing, it is our faith
in the essentials that anchors us and shows
us the way. We believe by faith that every
word of the Bible is inspired of God and is
the answer for man's greatest needs (II
Timothy 3:16). Our faith assuresus of the
deity of Jesus Christ and His virgin birth
God's Word tells us that it is necessary for
Jesus Christ to shed His blood and die in
order to pay the price for our sin that we
might have forgiveness (Ephesians 1:7). It
is the wonderful faith that God has given us
that gives us the opportunity to be a part
of His local church of which Jesus Christ is
the Head (Col 1:18).
