How To Have A Personal Relationship With God
God's Plan - Peace and Life
God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life. The Bible says ..."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).
Man's Problem - Separation
Being at peace with God is not automatic, because by nature you are separated from God. The Bible says ... "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Man tries to bridge this separation in many ways: good works, religion, and morality, yet without success.
God's Remedy - The Cross
God's love bridges the gap of separation between you and Him. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave, He paid the penalty for your sins. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes unto the father but by Me" (John 14:6).
Man's Response - Receive Christ
You cross the bridge into God's family when you receive Christ personally. The Bible says ... "But as many as received Him to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).
Repent (turn away) of your sins and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior. If you would like more information on how to become a Christian, please call (618) 462-8816 and ask for a staff member.
