The Gospel Message:  Good News for everyone!

God created mankind to live in perfect fellowship with Himself.  When Adam and Eve sinned, that relationship was broken.  God, through His love and mercy, provided a way to restore us to Himself.  God sent His Son Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary, to live a sinless life on this earth.  Jesus was beaten, crucified, and buried to pay the penalty for our sin.  On the third day, God the Father raised Jesus from the dead, and Jesus is alive today! 

God wants a personal relationship with each of us.  The Bible is our source of truth in this world and lays out God's plan of redemption.  Read the verses below to see what the Holy Scriptures say about God's plan of salvation.  If you pray the prayer at the end of this page, congratulations!  You are a child of God!

We encourage you to read the Bible and talk to God daily.  Being a part of a local church is essential to hearing truth being preached, to worship God corporately, and to fellowship with other believers.  If you do not have a home church, we invite you to visit Northern Lights Christian Center, and allow us to welcome you into the family of God!

Prayer of salvation

Father in Heaven,

Thank you for making a way of salvation through Jesus Christ, Your only begotten Son.  I realize that I have sinned and fall short of Your glory.  I repent of my sin and ask You to forgive me.  I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and believe in my heart that Jesus came to earth, shed His blood and died a sinless death upon the cross to pay the penalty for my sin.  I believe that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, according to the Scriptures.  I believe that Jesus is alive today and that He is returning soon to gather to Himself those who believe in Him.  I make Jesus Christ Lord of my life today!  In Jesus' name, amen!

"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name."  John 1:12
