Discover Christ

God created you for a personal love relationship with Him. But we have all sinned, and our sin separates us from God.  The good news is that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins so that we can have eternal life with Him in heaven

We need to respond to Christ's gift with repentance and faith. We must admit our sins and be willing to turn from them, and put our faith in Jesus as our own Lord & Savior. The Bible says "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." If you have never done it, ask Him to save YOU right now.  Then tell someone about it! 

If you have questions about giving your life to Christ, please contact us at First Baptist Church. We will be glad to help!
