Teaching Others to be Followers of Jesus Christ

Gospel Message

Do you know Jesus?  Not just the name, but do you really know Him?  Do you want to know more about knowing Him?  We would love to share what we know about having a true relationship with Jesus Christ.  God's Word tells us exactly what each person must do to accept Jesus as their personal Savior and spend eternity with Him.  Some of the verses from God's Word are here so that you, too, can know who Jesus really is.  The first steps to knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord are in these verses, if you truly believe them -- 

God Loves You
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8

All Are Sinners
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.  Romans 3:23

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.  Romans 3:10

God's Remedy for Sin
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

I tell you, Nay:  but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.  Luke 13:3

But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believer on His name.  John 1:12

For I delivered unto your first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that He was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.  1 Cor 15:3-4

All May Be Saved Now
Behond I stand at the door, and knock, if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  Revelation 3:20

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  Romans 10:13

My Decision to Receive Christ As My Savior
Dear Lord Jesus,

     I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.  I believe that You died for my sins on the cross and were raised for my justification.  I want to turn from my sins.  I now invite You to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

We would like to pray for you if you have made this decision. 
You may contact us via email to let us know of your decision. 
If you live in the Marshville area, please visit our church.  We would love to meet you!

The next step after accepting Jesus as your Savior and Lord is developing that relationship.
As with all relationships, that means spending time with Him.  Reading God's Word is one way to
learn more about Jesus and what His promises are for you.  Also, choosing godly friends and
being part of a Christian fellowship are two more ways to grow in your relationship with Him. 
It is our prayer that you will find a church near you that believes in the Bible as God's Word
and they teach that Word without compromise.
You can also talk with Him by spending time in prayer. 
Answers to those prayers will come as you read His Word.
