"What must I do to be saved” (Acts 16:30) Nearly 2000 years ago, a jailor in the city of Philippi asked this question of Paul the Apostle. It is the most important question that you can possible ask because it addresses the greatest need you can possibly have.

For each of us, our greatest need is to be right with God. Until this happens, our sin causes us to be alienated (or separated from him). Until you are saved, you are spiritually dead and condemned to spend eternity in hell.

God has made a provision to save us only through Jesus Christ. Through the miracle of the virgin birth, God the Son came to earth as the God-man Jesus Christ. He lived a perfect life absolutely free from sin. At the age of 33, he allowed Himself to be crucified on the cross. During His crucifixion, God the Father inflicted upon Jesus all of the judgment that each of us should receive in hell.  After He died, He was buried and then rose from the dead three days later. Through His death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus Christ accomplished everything that needed to be done so that we might have forgiveness, spiritual life, and complete acceptance as a free gift.

Each of us has the responsibility to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by faith. “To as many as receive Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God.” (John 1:12)

If you have never repented of your sin and placed your faith (trust) in Jesus Christ alone to give you His wonderful gift of salvation, you can do this by praying to Him. If you have made this decision or if you have any questions please contact us by e-mail.  God Bless.
