You need Jesus

GOD LOVES YOU.

God desires to have a living relationship with you and give you salvation, purpose and eternal life. It is an important decision that only you can make, but you need to make it.

1. You have a past: Scripture – the Bible – states clearly that everyone in the world is guilty of sin – and that includes you and me. The Bible says “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

2. Sin has its price: The Bible also tells us that “the wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23) The wages of work is money, but the wages of sin is death. Death in this context means separation from God forever. But there is good news.

3. Christ paid for your sin: Even though we are sinners, Jesus Christ loves us so much that he died in our place to pay for our sin. He took the punishment in our place. “But God demonstrated his own love for us in this while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

4. Believe in Jesus: To become a Christian and have the assurance of eternal life is a personal decision only you can make.

The Bible says: “If you confess with you mouth, Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) The word “believe” here means to entrust your life completely over to Jesus Christ. That’s what real faith is – asking Jesus Christ to be Lord of your life.

The next step

If you’d like to begin a personal relationship with Jesus today, we encourage you to pray this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that you died for me and that your blood paid for my sins. I ask for your forgiveness. I want you to be my Lord and saviour. Thank you for dying for me, and for forgiving my sin and for giving me eternal life. Help me to turn away from my sin and follow you as my Lord and saviour. Lead me and guide me from this day on. Amen.”

You have made an important and life-changing decision.

We encourage you to contact us (click here). We will promise to pray for you. If you live within easy travel of our church in Murray Bridge, South Australia, we would welcome you into our church and help you on your journey.
