We believe there is no more important matter than your decision about Jesus. He is the eternal Son of God who came so that sinners like us could be redeemed. Please consider the truth about who Jesus is and why He came to earth. What you decide about Jesus is the most important decision you will make in your life. We urge you on behalf of Christ: be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:20).

Please consider what the Bible teaches about your need for salvation through Jesus:

Every person owes God glory

God created us to glorify, enjoy and obey Him. Every human being should live for God.

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)

 

Every person has failed to glorify God as he should

All of us have utterly failed to glorify God as we should: this is called sin.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”   (Romans 3:23)

All of us have failed to live under God’s rule by not obeying His commands (we steal, lie, covet, and more)

“You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony (lie) against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house…” (from Ten Commandments, Exodus 20)

All of us have failed to glorify God by acting as if the things God made are greater that the God who made them

“[God’s wrath came because people] worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator (Romans 1:25)

Every person deserves punishment

All of us are subject to God’s just punishment (what the Bible calls hell) for our sin.

“for the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23)

 

Jesus suffered the punishment sinners deserve

God is just, so He had to punish our sin. In love, God sent His only Son to bear the punishment we deserve and to be the perfect holiness God requires of us—so that He would not have to punish us for our sin.

“For our sake He (God) made Him (Jesus) to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

 

Every person who repents of his sin and believes in Jesus will not suffer the punishment he deserves

The benefits of Jesus’ death belong only to those who repent of their sin and believe that Jesus’ death alone satisfies God’s just punishment of their sin.

“Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)

“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. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” (Romans 10:9-10)

Those who repent and believe are now at peace with God.

“since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)

 

Every person at peace with God through Jesus enjoys God Himself

We enjoy worshipping God because we understand He is glorious

“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6)

We love and delight in God above all

“Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory” (1 Peter 1:8)
