In order to make Jesus personal, you have to make a choice to accept him as your Lord and Saviour. This involves the following.
The central objectives of our church is to assist everyone in fostering a deep and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. At the end of the day it will not be about the number of programs we ran, or the amount of money we amassed or the popularity of our events; instead we will be judged on whether we were able to “present everyone perfect in Christ Jesus” (Col. 1:28)
From the decision to make Jesus Christ your Lord on to the various paths of spiritual growth, through membership within the local church, faith, prayer, worship, understanding of the word and giving, going deeper with God is the crowning achievement of every believer.
We invite you to take a moment and hear the voice of the Master calling you, even as “Deep calleth unto deep” (Psalm 42:7)
Making Jesus Personal
Understand that Jesus can save you from sin
Because we are all born sinful, we are unable by our own strength and morality–to please a perfect God. However, God sent His son Jesus as your representative and as your ransom from being captive.
Admit that you have sinned
This is a prerequisite to accepting Christ. Understand that all have sinned and you need to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness by repenting of your sins. From the text in Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Profess Jesus as your savior
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Say, “Father in Heaven, I believe that Jesus died for my sins.” And God will impart eternal life to your spirit.
Path to Spiritual Growth
The path to spiritual growth requires becoming engaged in the practice of the following:
- Increasing in your knowledge and understanding of God's Word : I Peter 2:2
