Our Sin

We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness.

God's Gift

We can’t earn God’s forgiveness – it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven.

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

Our Response

We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - Ephesians 2:8

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. - Romans 10:9

If you are ready to believe and receive God’s gift of salvation, simply talk to God through prayer and commit your life to Him:

Dear Lord Jesus,

I admit that I have fallen short. I've sinned, and I desperately need your forgiveness. I believe that you lived, died, and rose again so that I could be connected to God my father. I confess you as my Lord, and now I commit my life to you. I give you my past, present, and future. Take my life and use it. I give it to you, Lord.

In Jesus' name, amen.
