JESUS & SALVATION
What must I do to be saved? (know God)
We know this question at the core of our being, we know there is more to life, but it takes real courage to ask. In our search we find Jesus the one who offers a path of reconciliation when he paid a price we could not pay for the forgiveness of all we’ve done wrong, for our total healing
Jesus makes all things new.
2 Corinthians 5
How do I become new? (How do I find freedom)
“Everyone who calls on the Lord’s name
will experience new life.”
It really is that simple. Actually the most well-known verses in all the bible is simply states
For here is the way God loved the world—he gave his only, unique Son as a gift.
19 In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world, not even keeping records of their transgressions, and he has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God.
2 Corinthians 5
Receive the Spirit
You are not alone on this journey, if you call upon the Lord Jesus, he sends to you the Holy Spirit. This will be the most exciting step you may ever take in your whole life, it is that amazing. Just as the church begun when the Holy Spirit was poured out, so you start afresh too when you say Jesus can I receive the Holy Spirit.
Be Baptised (Discover Purpose)
As you step out in this new life, It is quite normal to be Baptised. Baptism is an amazing act of faith as we symbolically capture what it means to die to yourself, bury the old ways to be raised into new life.
Here you will discover all the ways he has given you amazing gifts that will make a profound difference.
Regularly meeting with others at church, who like you are learning to navigate this faith journey is so helpful, Together we love and care and support each other and spur each other along. We need you like you need us.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he has anointed me to be hope for the poor, healing for the broken hearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners, ‘You are set free!’
Luke 4:18-19 TPT
Make a Difference
As if to fulfill this journey the Holy Spirit fills our days with purpose and meaning when he says now go. We the church are given the unfinished task of going into all the world to make disciples and to make a difference for Jesus.
We are ambassadors of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Turn back to God and be reconciled to him.”
2 Corinthians 5 TPT
God by his very nature is missional, a sending God. God sent his son into the world and his Son sent the Spirit. When we call on Jesus he sends the Spirit who we receive alive and well within us the church and engages with world by sending us on His mission. God’s mission is now our mission, that mission we call the Missio Dei.
