The Sinner's Prayer

The sinner's prayer must come from your heart and we hope this will help you to invite Jesus into yours. This prayer is here only as a guide. We urge you to pour out your heart to Jesus in your own words.

"Heavenly Father, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in you and that your word is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that he died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. I know that without you in my heart my life is meaningless.

I believe in my heart that you, Lord God, raised Him from the dead. Please Jesus forgive me, for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart, please Lord Jesus forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior today. I need you to be my Father and my friend.

I give you my life and ask you to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ."

Amen.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Words cannot even begin to express our appreciation to the Living and Almighty God for the greatest miracle of all, the salvation of your souls. We welcome you into the family of Christ. You are now beginning an awesome, exciting, unbelievable walk with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Looking back on my own salvation, I remember the great thirst and hunger I had for the Word of God and going to every service I could find, four or five nights a week. I listened to every Christian, reaching out in eager expectation for every testimony that I could hear. As I look back now, I find that I not only grew in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but I also grew in a degree of false doctrine, personal prejudices, and the errors of others.

If someone could have told me at that time to spend at least 90 percent of my time in God's Word seeking that direction, revelation, and guidance from Jesus Christ Himself, and 10 percent or less listening to what other people had determined that guidance meant, my growth would have been even quicker, even more blessed, even more glorious than it was. I am in no way complaining; for my walk with God from day one has been an awesome, exciting, thrilling, joy-filled experience. I would not trade one moment of the worst time I ever had after my salvation for all the riches, glory, and fame the world has to offer.

And so with that being said... we introduce to you our topical bible study index.

It is our prayer that as you use this index, you will become at least basically familiar with those things that God would have you to begin to know right now and continue gaining understanding of throughout the rest of your sojourning here on earth. Although this index is topical and mainly for searching the scriptures, you will also find some other words that will provide you with information from the site about the things happening within this ministry.

Until we meet here or in glory, may God bless you abundantly in your study of His Living Word.
