Why We Believe
Many people wonder - “why believe in God at all…what difference would it make in my life?”. We understand the question. How can you really know and trust a God you can’t actually see? But we believe you can.
God’s Word tells us that He created - us and all that we experience in our daily lives (Genesis 1). He cared enough to make us “in His image”. However, we are all still human and make mistakes every day. We are also sinful people (who make choices that do not bring glory to God - Romans 3:23). We were made to be in relationship (fellowship) with our Creator.
But, to be in a right relationship with a perfect God, there must be payment (atonement) for our sinful nature (our turning away from a Holy God). God has provided that, through His Son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17 & I Peter 2:22-25). It is the ultimate gift from God Himself (Romans 6:23). He provided a way for us to no longer be spiritually dead in our sinful nature, but to experience life - true life (Ephesians 2:1-9 & John 10:10). His love for us is greater than we could ever understand (I John 3:1)…and His love for us is what allows us to love Him back (I John 4:19).
God’s plan for you is that you would place your trust in Him and His way for life…that you would admit that you have acted in sin (in ways that are not pleasing to Him)…that you would believe that Jesus Christ did come to die for us and was raised again to life…and that you believe that He is God Almighty (Romans 10:9-10).
God has spoken all of this in His Word (Bible). We have complete confidence, trusting in the truth in Scripture. II Timothy 3:16-17 tells us that every part of the Word comes from God and is useful for us to live the life that God has called us to live.
We would love the opportunity to talk with you if you have any questions about giving your life to Christ. Feel free to contact us anytime with questions or concerns.
