Becoming a Believer

The story of redemption is the story of a just and loving God calling lost and rebellious creatures back to Himself. He has been writing this grand and glorious narrative of His goodness and grace since before time began. We urge you to explore this story further.

In the beginning, God created this world good and peaceful and offered us the opportunity of unbroken fellowship with Himself – for His glory. However, as Genesis 3 tells us, things went wrong. Through one man’s disobedience, we fell from this joyful state of fellowship. Sin entered our hearts, and the world became twisted and fractured. The harmony and peace that creation once enjoyed were damaged by sin and broken in disrepair.

Since that time, God has patiently and purposefully continued the story of redemption. God sent His only Son, Jesus, Who came and lived a perfect, sinless life and offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sin on the cross.

Jesus endured God’s wrath on behalf of sin. It was a dark and horrendous moment of suffering and death, yet peace, beauty and hope burst forth as Christ rose three days later from the grave. That which was broken God restored through his Son.

Through Christ, we are offered restoration and reconciliation. God takes what is broken and makes it new. He invites His children into relationship with Himself and into the newness of life found in Christ.

What God starts, He will bring to completion, and we pray that you would be woven into the narrative. If you feel Christ inviting you into this story – into restored relationship with Him – Talk to Him. Put your trust in Him and the work He accomplished on the cross to redeem and save you

Here’s what you must do:

1. Admit you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)

If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us .” (1 John 1:10)

2. Be willing to turn from sin (repent).

Jesus said: “I tell you, no! Unless you repent, you too will all perish.” (Luke 13:5)

In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent ” (Acts 17:30)

3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

“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)

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. ” (Romans 10:9)

4. Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Savior.

“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved ” (Romans 10:10)

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
