Jesus – Our Redeemer
It is ALL about JESUS.
At Calvary Chapel, we believe that Jesus died on the Cross for all the sins of all people, and that anyone can accept Him as Lord and Savior and be born again.
Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.
Recognize that you’re a sinner.
First, you must admit your spiritual need: “There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10). We can’t make excuses or blame others and our circumstances for our actions. “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Recognize that Jesus died on the cross for you.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God…” (I Peter 3:18). Jesus paid the price for your sin. The Apostle Paul said, “…the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
Repent of your sins.
The word “repent” means “to change your direction.” The Bible tells us, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19). God commands us to repent. You must be willing to turn away from the things that displease God.
Receive Jesus as your saviour.
Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). It is essential that you come to Jesus as you are. Don’t try to “clean up your life” before you come to God. Instead, receive Him and allow Him to do the “cleansing.” Jesus said, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” (John 6:37).
Experience God’s Grace
If you just prayed a prayer of salvation and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven. The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9).
To put your faith in action, be sure to spend time with God by reading your Bible, praying, and find a church where the Bible is taught in way that it can be understood. We would love to have you fellowship with us at Calvary Chapel Montesano, but there are lots of good churches in our community so you can look for one on the Montesano Ministerial Association. or if you are not in our area you can go to the Calvary Chapel Church Locator and see if there is a Calvary Chapel near you.
