We believe JESUS is central to who we are and what we do. This applies to each believer and the church as a whole. All that we are and all that we do is for His glory. He is the Head of the Body and therefore we affirm our desire for Christ to be seen more perfectly through this family of ministry. As we live out our Christian life as God intended us to, we become spiritually mature, attaining to the fullness of Christ.
'He is before all things, and in him, all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.'
Colossians 1:17-19 (NIV)
BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS:
Step 1 - God loves you and has a plan for you.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV)
Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10 NIV).
Step 2 - Here's the problem, people are sinful and separated from God, but there is good news!
We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 NIV).
The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23 NIV).
Step 3: God has sent his Son to die for your sins!
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 NIV).
But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NIV).
Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6 NIV).
Step 4: Would you like to receive God's forgiveness?
We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the prayer below to accept Christ as your Savior.
If you have felt impacted by these steps and would like to accept Jesus in your life, we would love if you would say this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died on the cross to pay the price for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life to You. I receive You as my Lord and my Saviour. In Your Name, Amen.
