|Here at First Church of the Nazarene, we believe that the God who created the universe wants to have a close personal relationship with you. We also understand that not every one understands what we mean by that. So give me just a few moments to explain what we mean.
We believe that humanity is lost in a world corrupted by sin and its consequences. God desires to set humanity free from this state of sin. So he sent his only Son (John 3:16-19) to pay the price for the sin committed by humanity. His son, the historical man known as Jesus, lived a life without sin. He became the sin offering for the whole human race. Through this sacrifice we can be restored to a right relationship with God. While Jesus was alive he said, "No one comes to the Father (God) except through me." (John 14:6-7) Jesus, the Son of God, loved you and me so much that he opened a way for us to know the Father. It really is quite simple. First, acknowledge your need to be forgiven. You are lost in a world of sin. Second, entrust yourself to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Thirdly, commit your life to walking with him from this day forward.
It is as easy as sitting down and talking with a good friend. There is no fancy language or right words that you have to use. Just ask Jesus to come into your life today.
Now, find a community of faith to enjoy the journey with.
May the love of Christ dwell in you richly,
