We at Calvary Baptist Church firmly believe that there is one way to get to heaven and that is through the saving power of Jesus Christ. Most people only have a general idea about what it takes to be accepted by God. If you were to die today, would you know for sure that you would be spending eternity in the presence of God? If the answer to that question is no, there is wonderful news that you CAN know for sure. Please understand that this assurance can only be attained during life and the decision to make peace with God can only take place before the time of your death. Since no one can know the moment of their death, it is of the utmost importance that you call out to God and ask for forgiveness of your sins now.
The Bible says…
God loves you very much and wants you to experience life “more abundantly”. He gave up His only Son Jesus Christ to die a horrible death nailed to a cross, beaten, mocked, and tortured in order to give you a pardon from your sins. Jesus Christ willingly gave up his own life to pay the debt owed for Your sins.
God created all of us with free will. Free will means that He will never force you to accept Him. He humbly waits for you to admit you are a sinner and are separate from Him. Since the beginning of mankind, people have tried to figure out a way on their own to bridge the gap separating them from God. But the Bible says…
Despite all of man’s efforts to become acceptable in the eyes of God, there is still NO other way except through Jesus Christ. No act of kindness, No gift you can give to a Church, No charity, and Not just simply living a good life or being a good person in the eyes of others will bridge that gap separating you from God. God provided one and only one way for you to be cleansed of your sins and be welcomed into His presence. Jesus Christ!
As mentioned before, Jesus Christ took the form of a human, lived and preached God’s Word, lived a perfect and sinless life, but died on the cross to pay the penalty of Your sins. He took Your place! Three days after His death He rose again from the grave and returned to heaven to be with His Father. This one act of love is the only bridge that you might be with God also.
The Bible says…
Because God loves you, He provided a way for you to spend eternity with Him. Forgiveness can only come from Him. You have a choice to accept this wonderful gift.
You must trust in Jesus Christ and receive Him in your life under your own free will.
The only way to find peace with God and receive the gift of eternal life in heaven with Him is to pray and ask Him. He is a perfect Father and waits for you to just ask Him. If you are ready to claim victory over sin and become what God wants for your life, say this simple prayer,
“Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner. I know that You died for the punishment that I deserved. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my heart. Thank you for providing a way for me to find peace with God. Help me to live the rest of my life in a way that would please You. I know that I don’t deserve this free gift of eternal life, but I know that You love me enough to offer it anyway. I claim the victory over sin in my life in Your Name. Amen.”
If you just prayed that prayer and truly meant every word, you have the assurance that you are at peace with God. This decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior has saved you from an eternity of separation from God. You will never be the same.
