Welcome! It’s exciting to know you are seeking Jesus! As one exploring the possibility of following Jesus and becoming a part of the church, we are here to serve you. God loves you unconditionally and desires an intimate personal relationship with you. Through the birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God provides a way for you to experience God’s amazing love.
Speaking of God’s amazing love, here are two verses from the Bible that reveal God’s love for you. John 3:16 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.” Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus’ death was God’s plan for our salvation. Salvation restores our relationship with God on earth and secures our relationship with God eternally. That’s good news, but it is just the beginning.
Receiving Jesus into your in life is an act of faith. Jesus will forgive you of your wrongdoings and bless you with the ability to live each day through his love and grace. Romans 10:9-10 state, “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
