That's sort of self-centred, isn't it?
Not entirely, let me explain.
You need to find a church where you will fit in as part of a family, part of a team. That works in two ways: what you contribute, and what you benefit from.
Before you have much to contribute there is a lot for you to receive. That's true with employment and other areas of life. It's also true with the Christian life.
Opportunities in both areas abound at Westlakes Baptist Church.
Do you know for sure that you are on your way to Heaven?
It's as simple as A B C!
Acknowledge that God loves YOU...
John 3:16 — "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Everyone is a sinner, including you...
Romans 3:23 — " For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Sin has a price that MUST be paid...
Romans 6:23 — " For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Believe that Christ voluntarily gave His life and died to pay that price for you, giving you the gift of eternal life...
Romans 5:8 — " But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Pray and ask Jesus to be your personal Savior and to come into your life...
Romans 10:13 — "For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."
Pray this prayer from your heart and in your own words:
"Dear Lord, I know that everyone is born a sinner, including me. I believe that when you gave your life, you assumed the guilt, shame and punishment for my sins and paid the price so that I could be set free. I ask you to forgive me, save me from my sins and guide me through my life as I follow you until I enter heaven. I am trusting in your loving and saving grace alone. In Jesus name I pray, Amen."
If you have questions or have followed these steps and would like someone to talk with about this very important decision, please contact Pastor Adrian Tabone via email email@example.com
In Ephesians 4 we are told that God gave us pastors and teachers for the purpose of "equipping" the "saints" so that they could carry out the "work of the ministry."
Every one of us are to be "church ministers" not "pew warmers." Fortunately as we all get involved, it's light work.
At Westlakes Baptist Church we want you to discover how God has gifted you, provide training for you in that area, then give you opportunities to dip your big toe in the water and "give it a go!"
Opportunities abound and we are praying that God will send forth labours into the fields that are "white unto harvest."
