The Gospel

Are you sure?

If you were to die tonight, are you sure you would be in heaven?  Do you have the inner peace of knowing for certain that God would welcome you into His Kingdom?  Have you experienced the life-changing power of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

The journey of life holds many twists, turns, and dangers, yet one fact remains consistent and has since the beginning of time:  True inner peace in your life begins with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the way to a relationship with God the Father that will give you both inner peace and eternal life!  Jesus said:  "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father but through me." (John 14:6)  His promise guarantees the best journey with the greatest success.

The promise of eternal life is the greatest gift to mankind.  Here's how you can know for certain that you have eternal life:

• Know that you are a sinner -- we are all sinners -- in God's eyes and that sin has caused you to be separated from Him. 
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. --Romans 3:23 NLT

• Know that Christ died for your sins and, as God, arose from the dead.
It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you -- unless, of course, you believed something that was never true in the first place.  I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me.  Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said.  He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. --1 Corinthians 15:2-4 NLT

• Receive God's total forgiveness for your sins by trusting Christ as your Savior.
Now God says He will accept us and acquit us -- declare us "not guilty" -- if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins.  And we all can be saved in this same way, by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we have been like. --Romans 3:22 TLB

• Make it the desire of your heart for Christ to be the Lord of your life. 
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.   --Romans 10:9 NLT

If you are willing to receive God's free gift of eternal life, you can receive Jesus Christ into your heart right now, right where you are, by praying this simple prayer:

Dear God, I am a sinner, and I want to ask for your forgiveness.  I believe Jesus Christ, your Son, died for my sin and is alive right now, sitting at your right hand.  I now turn away from my sin, confess Jesus Christ as my Lord, and receive Him into my life.  I ask you, Lord Jesus, to take over my life, and I thank you for your gift of eternal life.  In Jesus' name, Amen.

Congratulations!  Asking Jesus for forgiveness and deciding to follow Him are the most important decisions you will ever make.  You have asked Him to be your Lord and Savior.  Your new journey begins now as a child of God.

But this decision is just the beginning of the journey.  You are going to have new vistas and experience things from an entirely different perspective.  You will want to show the world how your life has changed as a child of God.  Your next stop on the journey is believer's baptism.

Will you let us know of your decision?  Just write the Pastor a note and tell him of your decision.  He will send you materials that will help you see a new road map for your life.  And, if you live in the Northern Columbia County area, you are invited to attend the fellowship of Cornerstone.
