God's Purpose...Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life -- forever.

The Bible says:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16).

Jesus said:

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10).

Since God planned for us to have peace and real life right now, why are so many people hurting or angry inside?

Our Problem...Separation From God

God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a joy-filled life. Since the beginning of time we have chosen to disobey God and go our own willful way.  We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

The Bible says that disobeying God results in being separated from Him.  Our attempts can never unite us with God.  Through the ages people have tried many ways to bridge this gap and reach God -- without success.  There is only one way to reach God.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

God's Remedy...The Cross

Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem.  He is the only One who can bring us back to God.  He died on the Cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the gap between God and people.

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).

God has provided the only way -- we must make the choice.

Our Response...Give Ourselves to Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and determine to obey Him for the rest of our lives.  That way we can know God and find peace again.

“That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10).

How to give your life to Christ:

A.  Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness.

B.   Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.

C.  Through prayer, Confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and Commit to live for Him for the rest of your life.

If you have prayed to receive Christ in your life, we urge you to join a local church where you can make a public profession of your new life in Christ and continue to grow in your relationship with the Lord.  We would welcome you here at Brush Creek Baptist!

If you would like to know more about accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord or if we can help you at all in your decision, please contact us.
