Do you have eternal life? If you do not or you are unsure if you do, would you like to know how to receive the free gift of eternal life? You can have eternal life by understanding and accepting the following simple truths.
When God created the first man, Adam, God knew that Adam would be disobedient and sin against God. Because of Adam’s sin, all of mankind share in being separated from God because of our own sin (Ephesians 2:12). God’s Son Jesus (Matthew 3:17) came into the world to repair our relationship with God by offering Himself as the only acceptable, permanent sacrifice for sin (1 John 4:10). Jesus Himself could not have been more clear — “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6). By placing our faith in Christ, God promises that we will live eternally with Him in heaven (John 3:16). As new believers, we imitate God’s love with every part of our being, and seek to love others (Luke 10:27). A more comprehensive Bible study about salvation and forgiveness of sin is provided in the Christian Essentials Forgiveness study. A free printed copy is available in the New Life foyer — an electronic copy is provided here.
Although the message of salvation is simple, it is not easy. Believers have an enemy that “roars like a lion, seeking to devour” — Satan himself. But as this age continues, there is still room in the kingdom of God for those who call on the name of Jesus Christ for salvation. And, there is room at New Life to join in community with others who seek to live every day for the pleasure and glory of our King.
