When God created the world, he desired to live in a beautiful relationship with His people but through our sinful ways, we have broken the relationship which once existed.

Each of us have turned our backs on God and tried to live life our own way without him. God is a fair God and he takes our sin seriously. The consequence of living a life without God is that we will die and remain separated from him forever. But the good news is that through Jesus' death in our place and his resurrection, our sins can be completely forgiven and we can be adopted as children in God's family.

 


 

Every person will make a choice.

We can choose to ignore God's gift of forgiveness and continue to live our life without God – or we can choose to admit we mess up and need Christ to save us, for we cannot save ourselves. If you want to accept Jesus' free gift of salvation it's as simple as A, B, C.

  1. Recognize that you are a sinner who needs God's forgiveness
  2. Believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and that he died in your place to take the punishment for your sins
  3. Ask Jesus to become a part of your life to help you live as a child of God

"Because, 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)

It doesn't matter who you are, who your parents are, where you live or what you have done – you can be forgiven and start on a new journey of getting to know God better, living your life in a way that pleases him. It doesn't matter if you don't have all the answers – you are welcome to come 'just as you are'.

Why no formal prayer?

Prayer is a fancy term used to mean "talk to God". There is no such thing as magic words which you need to repeat in order to become a follower of God. Instead, take a moment to talk to God and share with him what is on your heart. There is no right or wrong way to do this – simply be honest. You may not feel different right away, but God will start to work in your life to help you to live for him. Yes, there will still be hard times – but God will be with you every step of the way.

If you have accepted Christ for the first time or have rededicated your life to him, please tell us about it so that we can welcome you into our family!
