Who is Jesus?

We believe Jesus is the eternal, One and Only, unique Son of God.  As John the Baptist pointed to Jesus, he declared, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"

 

Jesus himself told us who He is and His mission.  In John 3:16 the Scripture says, "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."

 

Jesus Christ is the only Savior of the world and He is the only way to heaven.  He is the Son of God conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary.  He lived a sinless life.  He willingly and sacrificially died in our place on the cross as an atonement for our sins before a Holy God.  He was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He is coming again as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to judge the living and the dead.  

He loves you!  You can know Christ and have a personal relationship with Him.  No matter who you are, no matter where you've been, no matter what you've done.  Jesus loves you!  If you will acknowledge your sin, turn to Christ by faith, and believe then you can be saved!  Be willing to repent (turn away) from your sin and follow Christ in obedience.

 

Read these Scriptures to help you understand...

 

  1. We have all sinned!  Romans 3:23 says that "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

  2. Your sin separates you from a Holy God.  Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

  3. Even though you have sinned, God loves you!  Romans 5:8 declares, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

  4. God will forgive your sin and save you if you turn to Him in faith and believe.  John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world (that's YOU!) that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

  5. Ask God to forgive you, confess Christ as your Savior and call on Him to save you!  Romans 10:9-10 teaches, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

  6. Turn from your sin and follow Christ daily...grow in your relationship with Him!  Jesus said in Luke 9:23, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."

Would you like to know Christ?  Would you like to know your sins are forgiven?  Would you like to believe in Jesus and trust Him as your Savior and Lord?  Would you like the peace and assurance of knowing He is with you and that your eternal home is heaven?

If so, you can pray a prayer like this (from your heart, sincerely)...

Dear Heavenly Father, 

I believe that Jesus is your Son.  I know that He died for me on the cross to pay for my sins.  Forgive me of all my sin.  Jesus, I believe in you and I trust you as my Savior and Lord.  Come into my life and help me to live for you and follow you from this day forward.  Thank you for loving me!  Thank you for saving me!   In Jesus name, Amen!

If you made that decision, let us know!  We want to celebrate with you the greatest decision of your life!  We would also like to help you begin this new journey and grow in your walk with Christ!
