Let Us Share With You The Reason For Our Hope!

We Believe ...

God loves us and wants to be involved in our lives. The Bible says that “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son [Jesus], that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

And Jesus, God’s Son, said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

But our sins separate us from God. Sin is displeasing God.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
“The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

So God provided the way through Jesus Christ for our sins to be forgiven. “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). “Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh” (1 Peter 3:18).

But we must receive Jesus as our Savior to experience the benefits of God’s love. “There is salvation [from sin’s penalty] in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). “For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day” (John 6:40). He who has the Son has life. (I John 5:12)

Christian Issues of Today

There are many issues that Christian face today. We look at some of these issues below.
Can you be a Christian and not go to Church?

This question is rather like asking, Can you be married and not live together?' The answer, of course, is 'Yes' but there is something wrong with a marriage which is in such a state.

A Christian is someone who has turned from his or her sin (repentance) to put his or her faith in Christ who died for sin and rose again as conqueror over sin, death and the devil. Christ is both Lord and Savior of a real Christian.

When someone truly trusts Christ, God gives spiritual life. Many things are changed when a person is converted, but basically the Christian has a relationship with God that is real and deep. A real believer will want to meet with others who trust Christ. Christians are great to be with because of their love for the Lord, as well as their genuine and growing concern for others.

Christian worship is exhilarating if it comes from the heart of a people who are thrilled by God Himself and all that He has done. To listen to somebody who loves Christ, teaching the Bible to those who are keen to grow in their knowledge of God, is not dry or boring but exciting. The Bible teaches that God inhabits the praises of His people. To be in a place where God is loved and honored is a delight and joy to a real Christian. If you do not experience this, perhaps there is something wrong with your church, or may be you have never really trusted Christ as Savior and Lord.

Question: Can I be a Christian without joining the church?
Answer: Yes, it is possible. It is something like being a student who will not go to school, a soldier who will not join an army, a citizen who does not pay taxes or vote, a sales- man with no customers, an explorer with no base camp, a seaman on a ship without a crew, a businessman on a desert island, an author without readers, a tuba player without an orchestra, a parent without a family, a football player with- out a team, a politician who is a hermit, a scientist who does not share his findings, a bee without a hive.
