God’s Plan of Salvation

Ask most people what they really want and the answer will be something like peace and happiness.  The problem is peace,  joy, and happiness can prove pretty illusive – especially when we try to find them ourselves.  In fact most people who look for fulfillment in their careers, friends, family or anything else wind up realizing there is a hole in their life that we just can’t fill.  That hole in our life can only be  filled by God.

If you think there is no way God could love you, you’d be wrong.  The same God who created the universe created you and loves you with all of your faults and failings and more than anything else wants a relationship with you.  Take a few minutes and check out the video links below.  His plan is really amazingly simple:

It’s so simple yet we try to make it complicated.  Romans 10:9 states, 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.  - New International Version (NIV)  Believing means trusting that Jesus’ sacrifice for you is the only way to find forgiveness from God and to begin a relationship with Him. We urge you to take this step of faith today. To do that, simply talk to God – this is called praying – and tell Him you believe in His Son. We suggest a prayer like this:

Lord Jesus Christ,
I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life. I ask your forgiveness and now turn from everything which I know is wrong. Thank you for dying on the cross for me to set me free from my sins. Please come into my life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and be with me forever.  Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen.”

Whether you have prayed this prayer or have more questions, we’d love to hear from you.
