Accept the Lord Jesus
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Grace and peace to each of you my Father’s children.
If you are visiting our web site today, we welcome you to True Light.
If you have never accepted Jesus the Christ as your personal Lord and savior and would like to be baptized, we extend the invitation to you today.
You don’t have to run around the room, jump over a pew, roll on the floor or foam at the mouth to accept the Anointed One into your life. However, according to the book of Romans, Chapter 10 and verse 9, if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. Verse 10 of that same chapter says, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If you are visiting this site and do not have a church home, we welcome you to our church family. We are a Christ Centered Church striving to be wise and healthy.
I know that you may be saying that you are Christian and that you can stay at home and have church all by your self” But I say to you today that a Christian without a church is just like a fish with out water.
If you are looking for the perfect church, this is not the Church. However, we are striving for perfection.
It is my prayer that the Lord will bless you and keep you in His care.
