God Has a Good Plan for Everyone!

Everyone is Separated from His Plan by Sin
Man listened to Satan and sinned against God and brought death upon the human race.

Jesus Died for Everyone!

Everyone Can Come Back to God and Receive Eternal Life
When we believe in Jesus Christ and receive Him as the our risen Lord and Savior, He forgives us, comes into our lives and transforms us into children of God.
““For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16, NKJV.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:” John 1:12, NKJV.
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”” Mark 1:15, NKJV.
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9, 10, NKJV.
Everyone Can Pray!
Pray this prayer from your heart:
Dear Father God, thank you for sending Jesus your Son to die for my sins. I believe He died for me and rose again from the dead. I turn from sin to to you and confess Jesus as Lord of my life. Thank you for saving me and making me your child, in Jesus name. Amen.
Now that You Have Believed
Now that you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, take few minutes to praise and thank your heavenly Father for what He has done for you. Begin to pray and read the New Testament every day.

Follow the Lord in water baptism and ask the Lord to fill you with His Holy Spirit and to help you to live a holy life.
