Are You at Peace with God?

You know that God exists and that He expects something of you, but in reality do not know what.  You know that the Bible is His word and respect it as such, but when you read it you find it difficult to understand and become frustrated.  Maybe you have gone to several churches but found them to be:

  • too formal and tied to rituals and were not edified
  • totally disorganized and with so much chaos that you left more confused than when you arrived
  • too worried about “who’s, who”, and judgmental on what kind of clothes people wore
  • too involved in themselves that you felt ignored
  • too focused on opinions and emotions that the Bible was not taught
  • caught up in human traditions so much that even you noticed that the practices are not found in the Bible
  • too concerned about tithing and their pastor that it seemed as if Jesus was no longer the focus.

Did you know that there is a group of people in our community that makes an effort to follow the Bible in everything that they practice?  The Bible is the focus of all of their teaching.  We invite you to visit us and see how our worship to the Lord is orderly, respectful and bible-centered.  When you visit us you will receive a loving welcome, but will not be embarrassed.

We will gladly listen to any spiritual question you may have, and will make every attempt to give you a Bible answer.  Our goal is to reach eternal life in heaven and it would be a pleasure to have you as our guest.

You might wonder: “Why should I care what God says?”

He created this world and everything in it, including mankind.  As Creator He has every right to demand obedience (Gen. 1:1).

Since God is our heavenly Father, He only wants what is best for His children.  His commandments have our best interests at hand, even though we do not always agree with Him, or completely understand His word (John 5:3).

He has demonstrated His power over other so-called “gods” time and again (1 Samuel 5:1; 1 Kings 18).  He promised to judge everyone using His word alone, the Bible.  This is not an empty promise, being that God, during the passing of time, has judged many nations and punished them for their sins (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

He loved us so much that He sent his only Son to die for us on the cross (John 3:16).

“But, I’m a good person, ins’t that enough to please God?”

It is not sufficient enough to be a good moral person.  Clearly, to be a good moral person is of great importance, but God requires more of His creation.

In Acts 10, we read about a man named Cornelius.  He was “…a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, and gave many alms to the Jewish people and prayed to God continually.  This man was a good person, but in Acts 11:14, an angel appeared and instructed him to call for the preacher (Peter) saying, “and he will speak words to you by which you will be saved, you and all your household.”  This means that Cornelius was still not saved, there was more that he needed to do in order to be saved.

God expects His children to obey, just like parents expect the same from their children.  He has told us what He wants from us in His word, that is, the Bible.  If we do not know what the Bible says, then how can we obey God?  Yes, in order to please God, we need to do more than just live a good moral life.

We invite you to allow us to share the Word with you.  This can be done in several ways: internet, mail, email, or better yet-in an in home Bible study.  This is totally and completely free!  We are here to serve you.
