“Whoever has the Son, has life.”
The decision to follow Jesus!
At SouthPoint Church, we want to walk alongside you and offer resources for wherever you may currently be in your spiritual journey. The story of God’s choice to redeem each of us is what we call the “Gospel.”Here it is, in a nutshell:
If you are considering making a decision to follow Christ, please know that asking Christ to be your Savior and Lord means you are entering into a relationship with God, whose very essence is love. While it does not mean that you will not have difficulties and struggles in life, it does mean that you will never walk through those difficulties alone. God promises in His Word, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5.
- Our Sin
We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:2
- God’s Gift
We can’t earn God’s forgiveness –it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
- Our Response
We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus. If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
- A Symbol of Your Faith
Baptism shows others that you have been made new. It represents your old sinful life being washed clean because of your faith in Jesus. For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Romans 6:4
