THE WAY


Do you need to make your peace with God?
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29


Today you can receive Jesus into your life!

These Important Truths of Salvation Can Help You Discover 
Freedom From Darkness.

The Bible declares:
"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

Giving you abundant life required the supreme sacrifice "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

 God desires fellowship and companionship with you. What a wonderful gift the Father has given, yet if God gave His own Son to provide an abundant and everlasting life, why don’t more people have what He has designed for us to receive? It is a question answered by this sobering realization.

There is a gap between God and mankind. He has provided a way for us to receive an abundant and eternal life, but people throughout the ages have made selfish choices to disobey God Almighty. These choices continue to cause separation from the Father.

God’s Word shows us that the result of sin is death. He says in His Word:
"There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12).
And God also said, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear" (Isaiah 59:2).

Paul the apostle states in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

And in Romans 6:23 we read:"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Every human was created with the ability and need to know God and fellowship with Him.

Augustine, a minister who lived during the fourth and fifth centuries, called this longing in each of us "that God-shaped vacuum." 

Every day we hear of people who are rich, famous, achievers, star athletes—people who seem to have the best life can offer—yet they try to fill that empty void in their lives with "things." They even try good works, morality, and religion. Yet they remain empty, for only God, through His Son, can fill that emptiness.

Jesus Christ, His Son, is the only way to God. Only He can reconcile us to God the Father. Mankind may seek other solutions and worship other gods, but Jesus Christ, alone, died on the Cross for our sins and rose in triumph over the grave and eternal death. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and mankind.

The Bible explains:"But God demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

We are also told,"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that 
he might bring us to God"(1 Peter 3:18).

There is only one way provided:"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 2:5).

For in John 14:6 we read,"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: 
no man comes to the Father, but by me."

God Almighty has provided the only way. 

Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin and rebellion against God by dying on the cross, shedding His blood, and rising from the dead to justify and reconcile you back to God the Father. You can be brought back to God, and your relationship with Him can be restored by trusting in Christ alone to save your life from destruction.

What an incredible exchange: Your worst for God’s best!

This step happens by asking Jesus Christ to take away your sin and to come into your heart to be your Lord and Savior.

God’s Word is very clear:"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20).

And the Bible tells us,"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10:9).

Are you willing to let go of your burdens and sins?
Are you willing to turn away and repent from your sins?
Are you willing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now?

At this moment you can pray the most important prayer of 
your life by simply saying:

"Father God, I know that I have sinned against You and I am deserving of punishment. I know that Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve on the cross so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I place my trust in You for salvation. Lord Jesus forgive me all my sins and wash me with Your precious blood.  Holy Spirit I invite You to come live inside of me.  Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness—the gift of eternal life! I ask this in Jesus Christ name. Amen!"

By praying this prayer, confessing your sins, and receiving Jesus Christ into your heart, God has given you the right to become His forgiven child. The Bible gives you this assurance:

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us form all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9)

"But as many as received him, to them he gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them who believe on his name" (John 1:12).


If you have just received Jesus Christ into your life, we want to rejoice with you.
