Reconnect With God
The Third Step to Purpose

     By now you should have the big picture. God originally created man to have fellowship with Him and to live forever. But when man sinned, God separated the tree of life from man and placed a barrier between man the source of eternal life. But Jesus Christ came to earth to be the door through that barrier so we can again have a relationship with God and become part of His plan. Jesus will one day come again to establish His kingdom and there will be peace on earth! 
     God desires to reconnect with  you and He has a plan to do so.  Here are the basic elements that must be in place for you to reconnect:

  1. Believe in Jesus Christ. You must believe that Jesus is God in human form, that He died to pay the price for your sin, and that He rose from the dead and lives today.
  2. Repent of your sins. You must be willing to turn from all known sin and from a life that is self-directed and opposed to the will of God
  3. Surrender.  You must willing to submit to and pursue the will of God for your life as revealed in the Bible.
         Are you ready to connect with God? If you are serious, here is a sample prayer you can pray:
Jesus, I believe You are God in the flesh, the Savior of the world. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I have been directing my own life, but now I surrender my life to You. I ask you to forgive me of my sin and be my Lord. Please change my heart. I choose to follow You. I want to be baptized, and receive your Holy Spirit. I want to be part of Your plan.

     If you sincerely prayed the prayer above and asked Jesus to take control of  your life, then Jesus will come to live in your heart. You will begin to notice changes in your life! 
     You should do two things as soon as possible:

  1. Confess Your Faith. Tell Someone of the decision you have made. It is important that you are not ashamed to stand up for what you believe.
  2. Be Baptized. Find a Bible believing Church where you can be baptized. If you need help in finding one, email us and we will help you locate one.
