Life’s Purpose

The search for purpose in life has puzzled people for thousands of years because we usually look in the wrong place: ourselves. While society and self-help books disagree, you won’t discover purpose by looking within yourself. Only God, the creator of life, can reveal your purpose here on earth. God’s written word, The Bible, tells us, “For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible . . . . all things were created by Him and for Him.”     Colossians 1:16 NIV

 

To know God’s purpose for your life means you need to know God. God desires to have a personal relationship with you and show you your purpose in life, but sin has separated you from God. In order to restore your relationship with God, He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you and pay the penalty for your sin. Because the penalty for sin has been paid, you can have a relationship directly with God but it requires an individual response from you to receive it. To accept Jesus into your heart you must:

Admit you are sinful

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23

Repent and turn away from sin

For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23

Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8

Receive Him

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.” Romans 10:9

Receiving Christ into your heart is as simple as asking Him to come into your life. You could pray a simple prayer like this:

 

Dear God,
I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior and Lord of my life. In Jesus name, Amen.

 

When you receive Christ into your heart, you become a child of God. You can talk to Him in prayer at any time about anything. The Christian life is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Youth & Childrens 
Ministries

These Ministries focus on helping each child find that special relationship with God and to know that they can do great things for Him regardless of their age. It is our goal and purpose to help each child foster stronger relationships with each other and to help them find their personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.

We want all children to know that they can do great things for God by following three main principles: Serving God, Loving God and Praising God. We also want the children to know that following the three main principles can be a fun and exciting time in all of their lives. We do this by making church a fun and exciting place for them to worship and grow.
