MEET JESUS

MEET JESUS

We believe that God created the world and everything in it, including you, and He wants to begin a personal, one-on-one relationship with you today.

IT STARTS WITH JESUS

We believe that God created the world and everything in it, including you, for an original and good purpose, to fully love you and for you to fully love God in return.

This is the meaning and experience of true life -
to know God and be known by Him.

But mankind became separated from God’s life because of disobedience and betrayal to God.  The beautiful world and loving relationship God intended to have with His creation was now broken and separated by sin with no human way to make it right.

You can still see the effect of humanity’s separation from God as you look around today and see the selfishness, hatred, greed, abuse and all the destruction sin causes in the world.

This means that every person who has ever lived has fallen short of God's perfect life.

"You see, all have sinned, and all their futile attempts to reach God in His glory fail." - Romans 3:23

But God didn’t abandon humanity on its course to complete destruction.  Because of God’s great love for us, God sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, fully God and fully human, to bear the awesome consequences of our sin.

What did Jesus accomplish when He suffered and died on the cross?

When Jesus suffered and died on the cross and resurrected from the grave by the power of the Holy Spirit, He accomplished what you and I could never have done no matter how hard we tried.

"God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God."- Ephesians 2:8

Jesus willingly became like us.  He laid down His life and paid the penalty that we deserved for our sin and rebellion... and in exchange He offers us complete forgiveness and a spiritual rebirth.  He offers us new life in Himself!

"When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun!" - 2 Corinthians 5:17

Jesus rescued you and me from being forever separated from God’s eternal life.

In order to live out God's destiny and purpose for you it starts with Jesus.

Jesus said, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. - John 14:6

To receive God's gift of life you must open your heart and respond to Jesus and what He has done for you.

God doesn’t force people to turn to Him and become His children, but He lovingly adopts into His eternal family anyone and everyone who comes to Him by faith in Jesus.

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved… For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." - Romans 10:9,13

To receive Jesus today, simply turn from your sins and trust in Him and what He has done for you on the cross.  Believe that He died to save you and rose again to give you eternal life.  You can express this belief in a simple prayer, offered from a sincere heart…

Dear God, thank you for having greater purposes for my life. I know that I have failed to live for You and that i have sinned against You.  But I believe that Jesus Christ died and spilled His blood to pay for my sins and rose again from the dead so that I could trust in Him as my Savior and have eternal life.  I open my heart today and receive You, Jesus, as my Savior and Lord over my life from this day forward.  Amen.

CONGRATULATIONS! WE’RE SO EXCITED FOR YOU. WE’D LOVE TO HEAR IF YOU MADE A DECISION.


WHAT'S NEXT?

If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, or if you still have questions, we’d love to talk with you about it.  Stop by Community Life Church this Sunday or send us a message.  We want to help you take your next steps and learn how to follow Jesus.  

LET US KNOW ABOUT YOUR DECISION TO FOLLOW JESUS.

WHY COME ON SUNDAY?

...not forgetting

"...not forgetting to gather as a community, as some have forgotten,
but encouraging each other, especially as the day of His return approaches."
Hebrews 10:25

The simplest and primary reason we come on Sundays is that it is the best way to begin a lifestyle of making Jesus the center of our lives and living for His purposes

When you placed your trust in Jesus you became a member of God’s family. God did not make people to be alone.
God has designed His church to be a life giving community where worship, serving, caring and deeper friendships take place.

When we intentionally gather weekly to worship God it gives Him the honor He deserves and we find we encounter His presence among us in a greater way. You will personally gain spiritual strength and be inspired to live beyond yourself.

So, why come on Sundays? God’s Word tells us to because we are better and stronger together. God can do His greatest work in us and through us when His people join together to worship Him and link arms to fulfill the life changing mission He has for us as a local church.

We all need a place to belong.

We’re saving a seat for you this Sunday!

We meet every Sunday from 10:15 to 11:45 A.M. at McQuistion Elementary School. For More Info Call: (724) 287-3303.
