The Most Important Thing...
In all the hustle and bustle we often overlook one of the most important questions in our lives: what happens next? Is their an afterlife? What can I know for sure about it? Who do I believe? Please, take a few minutes to read through the truths below and then give us a call. We'd be thrilled to share, explain, and answer any questions you might have.

Five Truths About Your Relationship With God From John 3:16

Truth # 1 God is!
"For God. . ."
Two Facts:

FACT #1: God doesn't prove His existence. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Gen. 1:1
FACT #2: God does reveal Himself to us. "For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen." Rom. 1:20 "God. . . hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son." Heb. 1:1,2

Truth #2 God loves you!

". . . so loved the world"
Two realities:
REALITY #1: You are a sinner. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Rom. 3:23
REALITY #2:. God's love for you is not determined by how good you are. "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Rom. 5:8

Truth #3 God gave His Son!

". . .that He gave His only begotten Son."
Two questions:
QUESTION #1: Who is Jesus? "In the beginning was the Word... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." John 1:1,14 Jesus is God in the flesh
QUESTION #2: What did Jesus do for us? ". . . Christ died for our sins. . . He rose again the third day" I Cor. 15:3,4 Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood, and rose again so that all who trust in Him will have an eternal home in Heaven.

Truth #4 God doesn't want you to face Hell, but to have Heaven!

"That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!"
Two clarifications:
CLARIFICATION #1: Hell isn't prepared for you. ". . . everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels." Matt. 25:41
CLARIFICATION Heaven is prepared for you! "In my Father's house are many mansions. . . I go to prepare a place for you." John 14:2

Truth #5 What does God want you to do?

"God wants you to believe!"
Two Aspects:
ASPECT #1:. You must turn from your sinful self rule.
ASPECT #2: You must trust Christ alone for your eternal life! "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved!" Rom. 10:13 "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." Acts 16:31
