How did I get here?

If you are excepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior for the first time, please review the information below titled Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior before joining our church, and complete the below membership registration form.  If you are in need of a new church home, we welcome you to join our church.  

                                                            Accepting Jesus As Lord and Savior

In the book of John Jesus says that: "no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.” (John 3:3 NRSV)  What Jesus was talking about here was a spiritual rebirth, not a physical one.  The Bible makes it clear that this spiritual rebirth takes place in us when we repent of our sins and put our sincere trust and faith in Jesus Christ as our redeemer and Savior, for He said Himself: "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in Me, even though they die, will live. And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25 NRSV)

If you have decided to put your trust in Christ alone for the salvation of your soul then today is a glorious day!  Pray this prayer below in faith and accept God's free gift (see Ephesians 2:8) of eternal life through Jesus Christ.  If your repentance is sincere and your faith in Christ genuine, God's Word promises that you will be made a new creation, with the life of Christ living on the inside of you; your name will be written in the book of life, and you will be empowered to live the life God desires for you to have here on earth!

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus:

I here and now repent for my sins, and believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
I believe that Christ died for me, as my substitute, and rose from the dead according to the Scriptures.
Thank you God, for sending Your Son, and paying my debt in full.
Even though I was separated from You by my sins, You saw me helpless, and fallen, and loved me enough to die for me.
I believe that Jesus suffered the penalty of my sins, and paid the full price to clear my debt.
Your Word declares that His Precious Blood, sinless and Divine, pays for all of my sins.
Because He suffered my penalty, I am now free.
No sin remains to condemn me. I'm no longer guilty before You.
I believe the good news of the Cross, and Your promise that
"Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Acts 2:21 NRSV)
I ask Your forgiveness, and I now receive Jesus Christ into my life as my Savior.
Today, I accept Your gift of love, mercy, peace and eternal life.
I declare by faith that Jesus Christ now lives in me.
I am a new creation in Christ, born of God with the life of Jesus in me.
I trust the blood of Christ blots out every sin from my life. My record is clean by Your mercy.
According to Your Word, I am now forgiven, I am now saved.

If you just prayed that prayer for the first time, please contact us so that we may celebrate with you, and pray for you!
