LIFE

The purpose of this page is to share with you the LIFE that God wants you to have in Him. We all have a need to know God personally. Many people have found Him and in the process found LIFE like they never knew before; a new life filled with joy brought about by being in right relationship with the Creator. We share with you how you too can have absolute assurance that your final destination is Heaven and that you are secure in your relationship with God.

Things to know if you are going to experience what you are looking for:

L-ove.  

Not just any kind of love, but pure love. The kind of love that does not take thought of it's own good, but only cares about the recipient of that love.  We find this kind of love demonstrated by God. The Bible say's, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son and whoever believes in Him will not perish (die), but have everlasting LIFE." (John 3:16)

I-solation.

We are all isolated from God. None of us can live up to God's standards on our own, we all fail at trying to please God. The Bible tells us, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)  The Bible also tells us that we are going to get paid for our wickedness. The Bible says, "The wages (payment) of sin is death. . ." (Romans 6:23) So, you may be asking why should I try?  Hang on, the answer is worth reading on. . .

F-orgiveness.

Not like someone who says, "I forgive you but I'll never forget it." That is not true forgiveness. God's forgiveness is true. In fact, it is the solution to the problem we have in isolation from God. The Bible also tells us, "Jesus died for all sins once, for everyone. . . to bring you to God." (I Peter 3:18)  So, there is a reason to give God a chance, you have a reason to live and to have LIFE.

E-ternal LIFE.

Eternal LIFE and HEAVEN can be yours, it can be a reality for you and it can happen TODAY. What do we mean by LIFE? Are we only talking about when you die?   No!  God's plan is greater than that! He wants you to know that you can have an incredible LIFE like you have never known before. The Bible is clear on this, Jesus Himself said, "I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)  

Jesus came to make your LIFE complete. You may be asking, "can He accept me?" The answer is yes!  In the Bible we find, "Yet to all who received Him (Jesus), those who have believed in His name He gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12)  You are accepted if you will believe in Him and what He has done for you.

So, what do you need to do?  It is as simple as ABC . . .

A- admit that you are a sinner.

Agree with God that you fail when you try on your own to please Him. Admit that you need Him. "Repent then, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out." ( Acts 3:19)

B- believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

Believe that the LIFE that He controls He wants to give to you for free. Believe that God loves you unconditionally.

C- confess verbally and publicly - you believe in Jesus Christ for your LIFE.

"That if you confess with your mouth that 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead, you WILL be saved." (Romans 10:9)

If you will pray this simple prayer you too can have LIFE . . .   "God, I now admit that I am a sinner. I believe that You sent Jesus, who died on the cross and rose from the dead paying the penalty for my sins. I am asking You to forgive me of my sin and I receive Your gift of eternal life. It is in Jesus' name that I ask for this gift.  Amen."

If you prayed this prayer, meaning it in your heart truly ... we want to tell you CONGRATULATIONS!  You have LIFE!
