Understanding The Gospel
THE GOSPEL (GOOD NEWS) IS:
This is the hope that we long to share with you because it is for you.
Our hearts run from God and rebel against Him. The Bible calls this "sin" (Romans 3:23). Even still, God loves you and wants to save you from sin, to offer you a new life of hope (John 10:10). To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:8).
You receive this gift by faith alone (Ephesians 2:8).
Faith is a decision of your heart demonstrated by the actions of your life (Romans 10:9).
If you trust that Jesus died for your sins and to receive new life through Him, pray a prayer similar to this to express your repentance and faith in Him:
If you have trusted Jesus for salvation, share your decision with a Christian friend or pastor, If you are not already attending church, find one in which you can worship and grow in your faith. Following Christ's example, ask a pastor to be baptized by immersion as a public expression of your faith.
To learn more about salvation, baptism and growing in the Lord, you are welcome to join us here at Crescent Heights Baptist Church. If you have more questions or want to talk about faith, please contact the church office and you will be connected with one of our leadership.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
"I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance."
"But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
"For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift - not from works so that no one can boast."
"If you congress with your mount, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised you from the dead, you will be saved."
