Who Is Jesus?

We believe that Jesus is God’s unique Son; the only one of a kind. The Scripture teaches that He is God revealed in flesh. In His Divine nature He is truly God and in His human nature truly man.

He is the One once crucified for man’s sin, the now risen and glorified Savior and Lord who mediates between God and man and who gives us access to the Father through His intercession. None can come to the Father unless they come through Him.

What is Salvation? – Man receives pardon and forgiveness for his sins after God enables the sinner to see his sin and draws him to Himself (God,)when he admits to God that he is a sinner, when in godly sorrow he turns from them and trusts in the work of Christ as redemption for his sin. This acceptance of God’s great salvation involves belief in Christ’s death on the cross as man’s substitute and the fact of God raising Him from the dead as predicted. It is a salvation by grace alone and not of works.

Who can be saved? – It is God’s will that all be saved, but since God has chose to create man with a free will (the ability to accept or reject what is right), God saves only those who repent of their sin and believe in the work of Christ on the cross.  Those who refuse to repent and believe have no chance after death to be saved and thus condemn themselves to eternal damnation by their unbelief.

How to become part of God’s Family:

1. Acknowledge that your sin separates you from the Holy God.

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

2. Believe (trust) that Jesus Christ died and rose again to pay for your sins.

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

3. Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, turning from your sin to Him (faith and repentance).

“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.” Romans 10:9

 

The free gift of eternal life (heaven) is yours only through faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph. 2:8-9). Receive it by trusting in Him today.

Once you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you should be baptized and fine a church home.  If you are in the Dothan area, we invite you to come by the Church office and speak with our Pastor or Associate Pastor.  If you cannot come to our church, please contact us by phone or email so that we can help you get planted in a good Bible-Believing church where you can grow in your relationship with your Savior!
