Who Is Jesus?
Jesus is the central figure of Christianity. In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.” Salvation for any person is found through, Jesus and Jesus alone. Jesus is also the second person in the Trinity. John 1:1-2 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God…” He is both human and divine…God and man at the same time. Jesus is the perfect Savior. He never made a mistake and performed many miracles throughout His life including healing, casting out demons, walking on water, calming a storm, raising people from the dead, and rising from the dead Himself. For more information on who Jesus is, read the following article by Matt Slick.
John 10:28 says, “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” When we become a follower of Jesus we receive salvation through Christ and we become His to keep. To say that we could lose our salvation would mean that Jesus was not able to keep his promise in John 10:28. We must remember that we do not earn salvation through our good works and as a result, we are not able to lose our salvation because of our ‘bad works.’ Salvation is by grace, through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). It is a result of the perfect life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for you and you placing your trust in Him, rather than in your own efforts. For a written conversation about whether we can lose our salvation, go HERE.
According to the Bible, there are only two places that we can go when we die: Heaven or Hell. In our world today this is not a popular belief; however, it is clear in the Bible that this is true. If you are a follower of Jesus, when you die you will go to live with the Lord for eternity (2 Corinthians 5:8, Philippians 1:23). If you are not a follower of Jesus, when you die you will be eternally separated from the Lord (Matthew 25:46, 2 Peter 2:9).
Why: Because Jesus Christ called us to be baptized.
What: Baptism is not a means of salvation; rather, it is a public declaration of the salvation you have received.
When: The Bible tells us that we are to be baptized after we have made a commitment to Christ.
How: We ask you to come to the church (most of the time), you get in the water (it is heated), you affirm your faith in Jesus and then the pastor lowers you into and back out of the water.
