As we look around our world, we can see the broken hearts and broken lives of so many people. We can see the hurt and the pain in the eyes of those longing for something more fulfilling than what the world has to offer. Amidst this pain and suffering we have found the real answer. Jesus is the answer and He is the only real hope, real peace and real love. Only Christ has the power to make a difference in our lives, and this is the message we are sharing with everyone, everywhere.

The Bible says that God proves His love in that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. In John 3:16 the Bible says, For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He gave up His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

Jesus came to pay the price for man's sins, heal their broken hearts and mend their broken lives. He died for us and all He's asking is that we live for Him. But in order for us to begin living our life for Him, we must first make Him our Lord and Savior. The Bible says in Romans 10:9-10, Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms his salvation. Jesus came to save you and me. If we believe this in our heart and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord, that God raised Him from the dead and that He is alive and well today, seated at the right hand of the Father, we can be assured of salvation. If this is you, ask Jesus to come into your life now. Ask him to be your Lord and pray this prayer below with us:

"Lord, I come to You in the name of Jesus. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. I am making a commitment now to live my life for You. I ask that You come into my life to be my Lord and Savior. I believe that Jesus is Lord, God raised Him from the dead and He is alive in me today. Thank You Jesus for saving me. I will never be the same. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

Praying this prayer is not enough. Christ calls us to follow him. What you have begun is a lifelong journey of getting to know and follow Him. You are on your way to Heaven to be with Jesus forever. If you honestly prayed this prayer for the first time, please contact Generation Church by phone or email. We would love to hear from you so that we can pray for you and stand with you as you are beginning your new life in Jesus.
