God's Purpose: Peace and Life
God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life—abundant and eternal.
The Bible says . . .
Why don't most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?
The Problem: Our Separation
God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice. We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.
The Bible says...
Our Attempts to Reach God People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.
The Bible says...
No bridge reaches God...except one.
God's Bridge: The Cross
Jesus Christ died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.
God has provided the only way. Each person must make a choice.
Receive Christ We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him in repentance and by faith.
Have you believed? Will you receive Jesus Christ right now? Here is how you can receive Christ: Admit you are a sinner. Believe Jesus died to pay for your sin. Confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Through prayer, receive Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior.
How to pray:
"Dear Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I now confess you by faith as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen."
God's Assurance: His Word
If you prayed this prayer, the Bible says...
Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ to come into your life? What has He given you?
When you receive Christ, you are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. This is called regeneration, or the new birth. This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ.
To deepen this relationship you should:
Read your Bible every day to know Christ better. Talk to God in prayer every day. Tell others about Christ. Worship, walk with, and work for Christ with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached. As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
