Jesus Christ said:

Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB)

Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where
You are going, how do we know the way?"

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father, but through Me.
John 14:5-6

Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying,
"I am the light of the world;
he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness,
but shall have the light of life."
John 8:12

Steps to Peace with God

Step 1
God's Purpose:  Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you
to experience peace and
life abundant and eternal.

The Bible says ...

Why don't most people have
this peace and abundant life that
God planned for us to have?

Step 2
The Problem:  Our Separation

    God created us in His own image to have an abundant life.  He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him.  God gave us a will and a freedom of choice.

    We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way.  We still make this choice today.  This results in separation from God.

People have tried in many ways
to bridge this gap between themselves and God ...

    No bridge reaches God ... except one.

Step 3
God's Bridge:  The Cross

    Jesus Christ died on the Cross and rose from the grave.  He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.
The Bible says ...

God has provided the only way.
Each person must make a choice.

Step 4
Our Response:  Receive Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible says ...

Where are you?
Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

    1. Admit your need (I am a sinner).
    2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
    3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
    4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit.  (Receive Him as Lord and Savior.)

Step 5

    Learn to pray.  Pray with other Christians.  The Lord's Prayer is a model of how to pray.  Find a good bible based church and listen to how the members pray.

    Our Lord, Jesus Christ has more love for you than you could ever imagine.  He wants to come into your heart, and he is waiting for you to ask HIM.  If you are ready, say this prayer.

    Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.  I believe that You died for my sins.  I want to turn from my sins.  I now invite You to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior.  In Jesus' name, Amen.

God's Assurance:  His Word

If you prayed this prayer,

The Bible says ...

Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ
to come into your life?
Where is He right now?
What has He given you?

Nice lake scene
    Receiving Christ, we are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer.  This is called regeneration, or the "new birth."

    This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ.  To deepen this relationship you should:

    1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
    2. Talk to God in prayer every day.
    3. Tell others about Christ.
    4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
    5. As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.

    God loves you unconditionally, even though the devil tries to make you believe that when you sin, God does not love you any more.

    Unconditional love is loving us always, even when we do horrible things.  God will always see and love the Angel inside of us.

    We can always seek out and have a loving relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spririt.
