— Four Steps to Knowing God —
  1. You have the power to become sons of God. The first step is to realize God loves you and wants you to have eternal life.

    The Bible says, "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

  2. The second step is to realize that you are sinful, and your sin separates you from God. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 that, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

    Because God is holy, no sin can come into His presence. The Bible says, "Righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne." Psalm 97:2 Thus, sin separates man from God. You must understand that your sin demands payment.

    Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death - physical and eternal. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." It also promises that the gift of God is eternal life. In other words, Jesus Christ went to the cross for you and for me to make the payment for sin that you and I should have made. He actually took our place! No greater love could we ever know.

    The Bible says, in Romans 5:8, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

  3. The third step is to realize that only in JESUS CHRIST can forgiveness of sin and salvation be yours.

    The Bible says, "But God commendeth (proved) His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8 and according to Romans 3:21-22, "But God has a way to make people right with him without the law. And God has now shown us that way which the law and the prophets told us about. God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all are the same."

    Receive His gift of forgiveness. Understand that His forgiveness is a gift. You can't merit it by being good enough or earn it by doing good things.

  4. The fourth step is to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord. Accept God's forgiveness as His gift to you and thank Him for coming into your life. Surrender everything you know about you... to everything you know about Him.

    Romans 10:10
    tells us "We believe with our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we use our mouths to say that we believe, and so we are saved." In other words, we must believe in our hearts that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and that He rose from the grave. We confess that truth in our hearts and with our lives.

    Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

    God loved us so much that He sent His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross to provide the way of salvation for everyone that would believe.

    The Bible says, "As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of God." John 1:12

    We must ask to receive Him and His gift of eternal life. Jesus said, "Behold I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him." Revelation 3:20

    We celebrate with you, the fact that God has taken up residence in your heart and life and will, and from this moment on, will be with you. This is the most important decision you will ever make. Follow Christ and experience all the blessings He has just for you. We encourage you to join a local church that teaches the Bible and begin spending a few minutes every day, praying to God and reading His Word. Start with the book of John because it explains so much about who God is and why Jesus came.
