Our message is very simple - Jesus Christ has come to seek and to save that which was lost! (Luke 19:10)
Our Problem Today - Every person is a sinner and commits sinful acts. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”(Romans 3:23). What is sin? It is missing God’s standard for life. If you have broken even one of God’s laws then you are guilty of breaking all of God’s Law (James 2:10).
The Answer to Our Problems - The Cross of Christ is the answer! “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8).
What We Need to Do - We must be born again! Jesus said that if we are to see the Kingdom of God we must be born of the Spirit of God. “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).
To Be Born Again - If you truly want the Lord to forgive you and to give you eternal life - ask Him! “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). Turn from your sins to God by placing your faith in Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord. “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19).
