God's Plan of Salvation

                  You're not here by accident. Jesus loves you, and He wants you to have a
                  personal relationship with Him. There is just one thing that separates you from
                  God. That one thing is sin.

                  People tend to divide themselves into groups - good people and bad people. But
                  God says that every person that has ever lived is a sinner, and any sin
                  separates us from God. That includes you and me.

                  "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

                  According to man's rules, people should be punished or rewarded according to
                  how good they are, and it might be hard for you to understand how Jesus could
                  love you when other people don't seem to. But I have great news for you! Jesus
                  DOES love you! More than you can ever imagine! And there's nothing you can do
                  to make him stop!

                  Are you thinking that you should make things right in your life before you come
                  to Jesus? Many people feel that way, but that's not what God says!

                  "God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners,
                  Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

                  For you to come to God you have to get rid of your sin problem. But God says
                  that you can't make yourself right with God by being a better person. God wants
                  to save you JUST BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU! 

                  "He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His
                  mercy." Titus 3:5 

                  It's God's grace that allows you to come to Him - not your efforts to "clean up
                  your life" or work your way to Heaven. You can't earn it. It's a free gift.

                  "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from
                  yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast."
                  Ephesians 2:8-9

                  For you to come to God, your sin must be paid for. God's gift to you is His son,
                  Jesus, who paid the debt for you.

                  "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ
                  our Lord." Romans 6:23

                  Jesus paid the price for your sin and mine by giving His life on Calvary's cross.
                  God brought Jesus back from the dead and paved the way for you to have a
                  personal relationship with Him through Jesus. 

                  All that's left for you to do is to accept the gift that Jesus is holding out for you
                  right now.

                  "If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that
                  God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that
                  you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and
                  are saved." Romans 10:9-10

                  God says that if you believe in His son, Jesus, you can live forever with Him in
                  glory.

                  "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." John 3:16

                  Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right
                  now? If it is your sincere desire to ask Jesus to come into your heart as your
                  personal Lord and Savior, then talk to God from your heart through the Sinner's
                  Prayer:

                  The sinner's prayer:
                                       "Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I do not
                                       deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose
                                       from the grave to purchase a place in Heaven for me.
                                       Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive
                                       my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You
                                       alone for my salvation and I accept your free gift of
                                       eternal life."

                  If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to
                  rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.

                  If you have questions or concerns you would like help with, please call or write
                  and let us know. We're here to help you understand the love that Jesus is
                  offering you for free, no matter who or where you are.
