How to Know God

Recognize that you are a sinner

First, you must admit your spiritual need. Romans 3:10 tells us that "There is none righteous, no, not one." We can't make excuses or blame others and our circumstances for our actions. Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God."

Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you

1 Peter 3:18 says, "For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God...." Jesus paid the price for your sin. The apostle Paul said in Galatians 2:20, "...the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."

Repent of your sins

The word "repent" means "to change your direction." The Bible tells us in Acts 3:19, "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord." God commands us to repent. You must be willing to turn away from the things that displease God.

Accept Jesus as your Savior

Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." It is essential that you come to Jesus as you are now. Don't try to "clean up your life" before you come to God. Instead, receive Him and allow Him to do the "cleansing." Jesus said in John 6:37, "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out."

If you have chosen to accept Christ as your Savior, congratulations! You have just made the one of the best decisions of your life and we’re so happy for you! Please share your decision with one of the pastors or prayer team the next time you are in a weekend service or contact the office. Let us help you with the resources and relationships you need to flourish as a child of God!
