The content on this site is intended to:
1) Lift up Jesus Christ in His fullness, the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), as the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).
2) Proclaim the gospel of the kingdom that Jesus Christ preached (Matthew 4:23).
3) Build up His worldwide church, the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-13,27; Ephesians 4:15-16), which is the hope of the world.
The love of God inspires the graphic shown above on this .church site. In sign language around the world, the way to say “I love you” is to extend the thumb, the index finger, and the little finger. The love of the Father is perfected in the love of Jesus Christ, now enthroned at His right hand. They have shed this love abroad through the Holy Spirit that is in the church, represented by the formation of the two hands coming together. This is the fullness of the love of God.
Prayer of salvation
God loves you — no matter who you are, no matter what your past. God loves you so much that He gave His one and only begotten Son for you. The Bible tells us that "...whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16 NIV). Jesus laid down His life and rose again so that we could spend eternity with Him in heaven and experience His absolute best on earth. If you would like to receive Jesus into your life, say the following prayer out loud and mean it from your heart.
Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner. Right now, I choose to turn away from sin, and I ask You to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on the cross to take away my sins. I also believe that He rose again from the dead so that I would be forgiven of my sins and made righteous through faith in Him. I call upon the name of Jesus Christ to be the Savior and Lord of my life. Jesus, I choose to follow You and ask that You fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit. I declare that right now I am a child of God. I am free from sin and full of the righteousness of God. I am saved in Jesus' name. Amen.
(Text and prayer by HC)
You are His, He is yours, and Christ is within you the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
