On behalf of all of our people, please accept my invitation to attend our services. We will look forward to see you soon.
A Message of Hope... One of the greatest gifts God offers to people is hope. Without hope, life becomes meaningless, and dreams of a better future fade into a dark, grim existence.
Hope is the intangible factor that breathes life into a world that desperately needs it. Hope is a gift from God offered to every person on the planet. This hope is not merely temporary happiness; it is inexhaustible joy abound in the person of God's Son - Jesus Christ. God's Word says, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you" (I Peter 1:3-4).
God has made a way for us to find the hope that is essential to an abundant life. We must, however realize that as humans we sin, and this sin separates us from God. Yet His love is so great and His grace so immense that He made a way for our sins to be forgiven, offering forgiveness and salvation freely.
The Bible makes it very clear that God loved us so much that He sent His only Son to pay for our sin. God's Word says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). The price God's Son had to pay was to die a horrific death on a cruel Roman cross, shedding His blood and dying for us. We can find forgiveness of our sin through faith in the person of Jesus Christ who died for our sin and rose from the grave.
Imagine the hope that is infused into the life of someone who receives Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord! God promises eternal life to everyone who believes in Him, but without God there is no real hope; there is no future. With God we have "hope of eternal life which God...promised before the world began" (Titus 1:2).
The hope of eternal life is available for all of us. This hope comes when we acknowledge our sinfulness and our need for the Savior - Jesus Christ.
Will you pray, right now, and ask God to save you from your sin? Say this prayer: Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sin. I want the hope of eternal life that can only be found in You, and right now I receive You as my Lord and Savior. I trust in You alone for my salvation, believing that You died and rose again from the grave. Thank You for saving me.
A Message of Faith... When life becomes confusing, it is our faith in the essentials that anchors us and shows us the way. We believe by faith that every word of the Bible is inspired of God and is the answer for man's greatest needs (II Timothy 3:16). Our faith assuresus of the deity of Jesus Christ and His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23).
God's Word tells us that it is necessary for Jesus Christ to shed His blood and die in order to pay the price for our sin that we might have forgiveness (Ephesians 1:7). It is the wonderful faith that God has given us that gives us the opportunity to be a part of His local church of which Jesus Christ is the Head (Col 1:18).
