God Rules: The Bible tells us that God created everything, and He is in charge of everything (Genesis 1:1; Revelation 4:11; Colossians 1:16-17)
We Sinned: Since the beginning of time everyone has chosen to disobey God (Romans 3:23). The Bible calls this sin. Because God is holy, God will not be around sin. Sin separates us from God and deserves God’s punishment of death (Romans 6:23).
God Provided: John 3:16 tells us that God sent His Son, Jesus, the perfect solution to our sin problem, to rescue us from the punishment we deserve. It’s something we, as sinners, could never earn on our own. Jesus alone saves us (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Jesus Gives: Jesus lived a perfect life but chose to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus rose from the dead after three days. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can be welcomed into a right relationship with God and be part of His family for eternity. This is the best gift ever (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18).
We Respond: It’s not enough to just know the Good News! We must respond to the Gospel. In order to spend eternal life with God one must ADMIT to God that you are a sinner. REPENT and turn away from self and sin to Jesus (Romans 3:23; 6:23; Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9). BELIEVE in your heart that Jesus alone saves you through what He has already done on the cross (John 3:16; 14:6, Romans 5:8). CONFESS to others that Jesus is your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10, 13).
It's as easy as A, B, C (Admit, Believe & Confess). If you've admitted your a sinner, believed that Jesus saved you by his death on the cross, then all you have left to do is bow your head, and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and to become your Lord & Savior. Then you can Confess to others that Jesus is Lord of your life. If you've done these steps, please contact us here at the church or your local gospel preacher who will instruct you on your baptism and how to get started right in your new life you have in Jesus.
