Some look for happiness by experiencing pleasure. God says, I have loved you with an everlasting love! God had already decided that through Jesus Christ He would make us His children this was Gods pleasure and purpose. So God created human beings, making them in His image. He blessed them, and said, I am putting you in charge. John 3. Look out for 1.
Do your own thing. If it feels good, do it - regardless of what God says about it. Its my life and Ill do what I please! Isaiah If we say that we never sin, we are only fooling ourselves, and refuse to accept the truth.
It causes us to fear God and try to live our lives outside of His will. The trouble is that your sins have cut you off from God. Isaiah LB All have sinned and fall short of Gods glorious ideal.
There are ways that SEEM right to man, but they only end in death. My mother was a Christian so It doesnt matter what you believe, just be sincere. Ill give up all my bad habits. Ill work real hard and earn it.
Ill be religious and go to church. John God Himself came to earth as a human being to bring us back to Himself. If any other way would have worked, Jesus Christ would not have had to come.
The Way is a Person! God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were still separated from God by sin, Christ died for us. He took the initiative. Now He waits for each of us to individually accept what He has done for us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from every wrong. If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name Jesus by which we must be saved.
For it is by grace you are saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians ,9 Our relationship to God is not restored by anything we do, but on the basis of what Jesus already did for us! To all who receive Him, He gives the right to become children of God.
All we need to do is to trust Him to save us. All those who believe this are reborn! John Jesus says, Listen! I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in I realize I need you in my life and Im sorry for my sins. I ask you to forgive me. Thank you for dying on the cross for me.
Please help me to understand it more. As much as I know how, I want to follow you from now on.
Please come into my life and make me a new person inside. I accept your gift of salvation. Please help me to grow now as a Christian.
Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. Mark 2. Jesus said, Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.
Acts We know that we have come to know Him, if we obey His commands. He was buried When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. The old life has passed away and a new life has begun! Baptism does not save you, only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring its the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith Ephesians III.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. When they came up out of the water The Greek word baptizo means, to immerse or dip under water. The founders of denominations agree: Martin Luther I would have those who are to be baptized to be entirely immersed, as the word imports and the mystery signifies.
John Calvin The word baptize signifies to immerse. It is certain that immersion was the practice of the ancient church. John Wesley Buried with Him, alludes to baptizing by immersion according to the custom of the first church.
Those who believed and accepted His message were baptized Acts Simon himself believed and was baptized Acts But when they believed Philip as he preached the Good News Acts At Saddleback, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them. Some churches practice a baptism of confirmation for children.
This ceremony is intended to be a covenant between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about years after the Bible was completed. This is different from the baptism talked about in the Bible, which was only for those old enough to believe. The purpose is to publicly confess your personal commitment to Christ. At Saddleback, it is a membership requirement that every member must have been baptized the way Jesus demonstrated, even though many of us were confirmed as children.
Those who believed As they traveled along the road, they came to some water, and the man said, Look, here is water! Why shouldnt I be baptized right now? Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may. So they went down into the water and Philip baptized him.
Acts There is no reason to delay.

As soon as you have decided to receive Christ into your life, you can and should be baptized. If you wait until you are perfect, youll never feel good enough!
It is a wonderful expression of commitment. Young children who wish to be baptized are asked to meet with our Minister of Children for a pre-baptism conversation. It is usually not wise to delay your baptism while waiting on other family members to accept Christ, particularly children. The Father declares his approval of Jesus. Jesus — John — Jesus began his ministry by joining the people streaming to John for baptism.
This baptism was unique.

In submitting to baptism we acknowledge principles 1 and 2: God exists. God wants to have a relationship with us.

Matthew — It shows that I really am a believer. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! Matthew Acts At Sunny Hills Church, it is a membership requirement that every member must have been baptized by immersion after becoming a Christian.

Sunny Hills is a group of people who have discovered the meaning and purpose that knowing Jesus brings to life. The main thing about Sunny Hills Community Church is that we focus on helping you live out the five key purposes God has given us for our daily life.
Fellowship Connect Warmer Gives me a people to live with.
Discipleship Grow Deeper Gives me principles to live by. Ministry Serve Broader Gives me a profession to live out. Evangelism Share Larger Gives me a purpose to live for.
And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Enjoying the presence of God is a part of worship. Baptism identifies you with our church family. Doing what God says helps us grow.
Teaching is one of many ways we can serve others.
This is the driving force of the church. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
sorry, looks like the page is missing!
He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ.
He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.
It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus, in faith we are saved.He went out of his way to find common ground with people.
At Sunny Hills we stick to the five purposes and focus on energies on them … not these noteworthy issues or causes. Recommitment Rom.
And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells him? The founders of denominations agree: Martin Luther
