O U R D E S I R E is to help you experience life in a new and fresh way – a life in Christ. We believe that you were created by God, need God and through God can live a vibrant and abundant life that will be a blessing to you and to those around you.
There is nothing greater than understanding that your eternity is secure and that the foundation of your life is built upon a savior who came to earth, died and rose again for you. His love is endless and His love is unchanging. You are truly loved!
How To Know Jesus
– First, know that God loves you…
“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son [Jesus Christ],
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” – John 3:16
We know God’s love and faithfulness is real. His ultimate provision for us is His gift of salvation which can be found only in His Son, Jesus Christ. That love is something that all of us desire, and because of His death on the cross, is something that is available to each and every one of us.
– Next, understand that man has a sinful nature…
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23
Sin separates you from the love of God. It has broken the bond and created a distance between you and the love of God. But, God desires fellowship and closeness with you.
– The result of sin is death, but there is GOOD NEWS…
“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this;
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” – Romans 5:8
In spite of our sin God created a bridge that reunites each of us to Him and gives us the hope of eternity with Him. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin with His death on the cross. But the story doesn’t end there. Christ rose from the dead and still lives today! He desires a close relationship with you but there’s one last step.
– Ask to receive God’s forgiveness…
“Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name,
He gave the right to become children of God” – John 1:12
