It is all about Jesus! God loves you & I so much He provided just “one way” to eternal life, through His son Jesus. In Romans 3:23 the bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Then in Romans 6:23 it says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” So the problem of sin exists and it separates us from God. But God made a way through His son Jesus Christ, who took the wages or penalty of sin, by dying on the cross for us, and gave the Gift of Eternal Life to us.
Let me ask you an important question if your heart stopped beating in the next few minutes are you at peace with God? Do you know where you spend eternity? If not I would love to have the opportunity to pray with you, right now, so you can know that you will spend eternity with God. I'm not here to condemn anybody or to get you to join a religion, but rather to help you receive the Gift of Eternal Life and find a new beginning and I know that comes by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Religion cannot save you, only a relationship with Jesus Christ, that is what will
change your life.
Pray this prayer with me today to say, “Lord Jesus I repent of my sins, come into my heart, wash me clean, I make you my Lord and Savior. Today I receive a New Beginning in you!”
My friend if you prayed that simple prayer and meant it from your heart, we believe you got born again. The scripture says whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. That is what you just did!
I encourage you to keep God first place in your life. Get a Bible and read it every day. I would encourage you to start with the Gospels(Matthew Mark, Luke & John), and maybe read the Gospel of John first. Attend a good bible believing church, and be there as often as possible. And then learn to pray. Prayer is simply talking to God. You don’t need to have some kind of formality with long words, just talk to God like you talk to a friend.
I believe today is a new beginning in your life! Write down today’s date in your Bible, the day you were born again. And I believe it is going to be a new day of victory for you. The bible says in John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Eternal Abundant Life in Jesus Christ is God’s gift to you, and now you have it!
Being a part of a local church is vital to growing and staying strong in The Lord. Jesus said, “I Will Build My Church
And The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It!”
That means as we stay engaged and involved in
church, like the building blocks of a building, we are
strengthened and we help strengthen others! Pushing
over one lone brick is very easy, but take that same
brick and cement it into a wall and you would have a
very difficult time knocking it down. This is part of
what Jesus meant. Jesus places us in the body of
Christ as it pleases Him and He strengthens our lives
as we stay committed. When the devil, or life tries to
overwhelm you, you have a multiplied strength
through the local church. Psalm 1:3 says, “He
(meaning a Christian) shall be like a tree Planted by
the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its
season, Whose leaf also shall not wither, And
whatever he does shall prosper.”
The key here is letting God plant you! A tree that is planted can bear much fruit, but a tree that is not planted cannot. I encourage you to make a new habit of attending every possible church service. That’s a commitment.
A Generous Giver
Also, become a generous giver, to be successful in your walk with God, commit to honor God with your finances. When you commit to give the Lord the first 10% of your income, God promises He will pour out blessings you cannot contain. Tithing is the first key to financial prosperity. Scripture says, in Malachi 3:10, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”
Deuteronomy 32:30 says, “How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight!” There is a synergistic strength that occurs in the Christian Life when we stay connected in fellowship with the church! 1 John 1:7
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have
fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” We encourage
you to join a connect group near you. Our connect

Jeremiah 29:11-14 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord!”God has a “Great Plan” for your life and it is His plan for you to become all He created you to be!
We encourage you to be the greatest representatives of Christ’s love you can be. Apostle Paul wrote that we are “Living Epistles known and read by all men!” In other words, your life is a book read by all those around you and speaks volumes of the hope, faith and love found in a relationship with Jesus Christ!

Make a Difference for Others! Serving others is not just for Pastors. In Matthew 25:40, Jesus said, “Whatever you did for the least of these you did for me.” You can touch the very heart of God by serving others around you. Little things can make a big impact and can become a great witness of the love of Christ without ever preaching a sermon.Through our many team ministries, Media ministry, Children’s Church or even helping in the nursery, you can help minister the gospel to those seeking the truth found in God’s Word.
Connect Group leaders strengthen, support and encourage you to stay strong, connecting through prayer, fellowship and intimate friendships by joining one of our connect groups. Don’t let the busyness of life get in the way of building lasting relationships with other believers who care about “who you are and where you are going” in your walk with God!
