You can have real, lasting peace today through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Start your four-step journey now!

Step 1 God loves you and has a plan for you!

The Bible says, God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Jesus said, I came that they may have life and have it abundantlya complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).

But heres the problem:
Step 2 People are sinful and separated from God.

We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls sin. The Bible says, All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).

The good news?
Step 3 God sent His Son to die for your sins!

Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.

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

But it didnt end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!

Christ died for our sins. He was buried. He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me (John 14:6).
Step 4 Would you like to receive Gods forgiveness?

We cant earn salvation; we are saved by Gods grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sinsthats called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:

"Dear God,
I know Im a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."

Did you pray this prayer?applause

read your babble, christmas guy was a sinner according to the commandments set out in the old testament. The bible is full of the kind of contradictions and inconsistencies one would expect from uneducated bronze age luddites. That which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed as readily, to paraphrase the great Christopher Hitchens. The babble is evidence of nothing more of how unsophisticated those who wrote it were. Considering it was compiled by a committee of cultists who deliberately omitted the books of Mary Magdalene and Judas, among others, it's no wonder the bible is a complete and utter dog's breakfast of bigotry and misogyny. Any female christian should consider how submissive the bible demands them to be and anyone other than caucasian really should wonder why the bible sets out rules on how to treat slaves. If you require imaginary friends and can only act decently under the threat of eternal torture, you seriously need professional help. According to christian doctrine, even one moment before death the acceptance of christmas boy offers eternal salvation. So that same child killer who repents 5 minutes before death gets to go to the same paradise as the innocents they butchered so they may face their torturer. That's f*cking beyond depraved. If you live your life based on ancient myths you have a hell of a lot of maturing to do.
