Our desire at Northside is to take the Gospel to all nations.
In being obedient to this command, we want you to know:
1. We are all sinners. Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned (and continue to sin) and fall short of the glory of God.” We recognize that no one is perfect and we all stand condemned for our sins.
2. We all deserve death. Romans 6:23 tells us that “the wage of our sin is death”. Death means not only a physical death, but also a spiritual death. This means that without something changing, we will spend eternity separated from God in Hell.
3. Christ has resolved our sin issue. Romans 6:23 tells us that “the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ”. Romans 5:8 tells us that while we still dead in our sins (and enemies of God) that “Christ died for us”.
4. The choice is now ours. God has done all that He can to reconcile the relationship that was broken because of our sin. John 3:16 says that “God so loved the world (you and me) that He sent His One and Only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish (experience spiritual death) but have eternal life. Romans 10:9-10 tells us that we can take part in this love story by believing in our hearts that God has raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with our mouths that Jesus is Lord. This occurs when we:
Ask for forgiveness. Psalm 51 tells us that we should allow God to show us our sins and confess those sins, asking forgiveness for the sin we have committed.
Believe God’s Word is True. Believe that God truly has sent Jesus to die for our sins and was raised on the third day to conquer death.
Commit your life to God. God is your Creator and has all rights to your life.
If you have made the decision to take part in this love story, we would love to help you on your journey. Please contact us and let us know how we can minister to you!
