"He who believes on the Son [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life" (John 3:36)

Our core beliefs
Our lives are filled with choices. But the most important choice may be one you haven't thought about; it's the choice that affects your eternal destiny. That choice is whether or not to become a follower of Jesus Christ.
The Bible says, "He who believes on the Son [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." (John 3:36)
God wants you to know that... He loves you and He sent His Son. . .
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
But the Bible says we have a problem.
"...All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...." (Romans 3:23)
Sin has dire consequences.
"...The wages of sin is death...." (Romans 6:23a) Physical death; but also spiritual, eternal death.
Even though we are sinners God still loves us, and gave His Son to die for our sins.
"...While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
Through Christ, God gives us that greatest gift ever.
"...The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
But that gift must be received.
"...To all who received him [Jesus], to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12)
"...If you will confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
pray this prayer
Dear Lord, I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don't please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you. AMEN."My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand." (John 10:27-28)
