If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, or you have questions about His birth, please take the opportunity today to speak with one of our church leaders or other church members.
And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
Jesus Is the Reason for the Season
From the beginning man has needed a Deliverer. God's love is so vast for us He sent His One and only Son, to be born of a virgin, born that if we believe in our heart that Jesus is truly our Messiah, our Deliverer, we shall have eternal life.
For God not only sent His Son as our Messiah, but Jesus the Messiah, died on the cross taking all our sin upon Him. Then on the third day He arose, defeating death, that we might have everlasting life.
All of us sin, all fall short of God's glory. Look at your heart today…
Have you truly repented of your sin? Have you asked God to forgive you? Have you asked Him to be Lord of your life?
As we celebrate this Christmas season remember God sent His son to be our Messiah.
Jesus Christ is the TRUE Reason for the Season.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.
