How To Have Eternal Life
Salvation is God’s Gift to You
• It is because of His great mercy and love that God shows us our need of salvation. If you are concerned about your spiritual condition it is a blessing from God because it identifies a serious problem.
• Recognize that you are a sinner and deserve God’s righteous wrath. Confess your sin to God and ask His forgiveness. Give up all attempts to minimize your sin, make excuses for it or justify your sin.
• Put your hope of eternal life in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ endured the wrath of God for you on the cross that you may have peace with God now and forever. Christ is Lord of all—purpose in your heart to love and serve Him for the glory of God who has saved you.
Growth Is Essential to Your New Life
Jesus spent a great deal of time teaching His disciples and they, in turn, were careful to instruct others in the faith. You need to connect with a local congregation of Christians who are committed to the study of God’s word. I invite you to contact us so that we welcome you to the family of God and give you encouragement.
Sadly, not all churches today believe and teach the truth. If you cannot join with us at Redeemer, I urge you to use our “What We Believe” page as a guide in selecting a church home. It will help you ask the right questions and make a good choice.
Good News from Paul’s Letter to the Romans
"For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:
"Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;
Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin."
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."
-Romans Chapter 4 verses 2-8 and Chapter 5 verses 1-2
