5 STEPS TO RECEIVING GOD’S GREATEST GIFT
Step 1 – Realize That God Loves You: Romans 5:8 – “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (NIV)
Step 2 – Realize You’ve Sinned & You Are A Sinner: Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (ESV)

Step 4 – Pray Out Loud From Your Heart: Romans 10:9 -10 – That if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” (NIV)
Step 5 – Be Confident That God Heard You: Romans 10:13 – “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NIV)
Heavenly Father, I know that You love me. I believe that You want me to experience Your love and peace, and that You desire to have a close, personal relationship with me. My sins separated me from You, but because of Your great love, You provided the perfect solution. I believe You sent Your son, Jesus, to take my punishment by dying on the cross and rising from the grave. He did this all because of Your desire to save me and make me Your own.
THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR YOUR LOVE AND SACRIFICE. YOU ARE MY SAVIOR AND MY LORD FOREVER. AMEN!

Luke 15:19-24 – ” ‘I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.” (ESV)
John 6:37 – “All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (NIV)
I John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (NIV)
Heavenly Father, I know that you have never stopped loving me and have always wanted the best for me. I have turned my back on You, but I believe You are bigger than my faults and Your arms are open. Today, I surrender my heart to you, again. Begin a new work in me. Transform me into the person that You created me to be, and I will be forever grateful. AMEN!

It is our goal to clearly display and communicate the life-changing power of God and help people discover their gifts and talents.
It is our goal to integrate people from diverse backgrounds into our church body by helping people develop strong, healthy, and lasting relationships.
