SALVATION

20230827_NextSteps_Images-01

SIN BREAKS OUR CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, CAUSING US TO FEAR GOD AND TRY TO LIVE OUR LIVES OUTSIDE OF HIS WILL.

Romans 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” All sin has to be paid for and today you can choose to allow what Jesus did on the cross to be the payment for your sins.

God has already done his part to restore our relationship to Him. He did this by sending His Son Jesus to pay for our sins. Now He waits for each of us to individually accept what He has done for us.

 

20230827_NextSteps_Images-01
  1. Realise that God has not been first place in your life and ask Him to forgive you for your sins. 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
  2. Believe that Jesus paid for your sins, and that He rose from the dead and is alive today.
  3. Accept that your relationship with God is not restored by anything you do but on the basis of what Jesus already did for you.
  4. Invite Jesus to come into your life and to be the Lord of your life. You can do this by talking to God. When we communicate with God we call this prayer.

 

Perhaps you’d like to pray this prayer below:

Dear Jesus, thank you for creating me and for loving me, even when I’ve ignored you and gone my own way. I realise I need you in my life, and I’m sorry for my sins. I ask you to forgive me. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Saviour.

Congratulations! This is the most important decision you will ever make on your life journey. Jesus wants to have a relationship with us and He’s given us ways to know Him better. As we get to know Jesus, we better understand His plan for us and we can strive to be more like Jesus.

We’d love to journey with you. Click here to connect with us. Click here to download a resource and devotional to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus.

BAPTISM

About Baptism

Although choosing to follow Christ is a deeply personal decision, it’s not a private matter. Jesus instructed us to go public with our choice. Baptism is an outward sign to all of what has already happened on the inside.

Getting baptised in water is the first step of obedience for a person who has committed his or her life to Christ. We get baptised because we take Christ’s leadership seriously. We also want to follow the example he set, by being baptised himself.

20230827_NextSteps_Images-02

Baptism in the Bible takes place after people have made a conscious decision to turn away from their sin and put their trust in Jesus. Nowhere does the Bible teach that salvation is dependent upon water baptism. The Bible teaches that Jesus gives you the gift of salvation, and being baptised is a response of obedience.

Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt 28:19). See also Acts 2:37-38 and Acts 10:38.

OUTREACH & MISSIONS

When Edge Church was formed in the late 1970’s, there was a heart for the kids and youth of the community, people far from God and for missions. If anything, this heart for others has grown and grown over the years. We have the privilege of partnering with 4 reach partners serving people far from God! At Edge Church, we will always be on a mission to reach people far from God.

God moves powerfully through your prayers. Why not pray with us for each of our missionary/outreach partners – God can do more than all we can ask for or imagine!

“And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NLT
