why Jesus?

Jesus always was, is, and always will be God's only plan to bring you to wholeness, to bring you closer to Him, and to heal your past hurts. To be "saved" is simply to submit to God and His plan and purpose for our lives. It is a recognition of our sin and turning from those old ways to instead turn toward Jesus and give our life to Him. The first step is the simplest, and biggest step you'll take in your life - and is simply asking Jesus for forgiveness from your sins and to give you new life in Him. The Bible, in Romans 10:9, says:

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, and by choosing to receive it, we become His children.

If you are ready to become a part of God's family, and have recognized that you need Jesus - you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus.

Dear Jesus, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without You. I am sorry and I trust that You will forgive me. I turn from my sinful ways and accept Your love and grace for me. I ask that You be my Lord and Leader. Help me believe in You and love You every day, and help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is.
In Jesus’ name, amen.

If you just prayed that prayer for the first time - congratulations and welcome to God's family!!! To pray these words with a surrendered heart to Jesus is the beginning of the most important voyage you will ever embark on: the journey to follow Jesus. This journey will lead you to purpose, wholeness, and a new perspective on life. We are full of joy for you!
