And we have seen
and do testify
that the Father
sent the Son
to be the Saviour
of the world
(1 John 4:14)
The most important question in your life is "What will you do with JESUS CHRIST?" Your answer to that question both reveals what you truly love and where you will spend eternity.
This site is designed to help you answer that question correctly, as well as to grow in the grace and knowledge of the true and living God.
Here you will find an organized and varied offering of topics relative to faith in the Lord Jesus, from salvation messages (as below), to Bible study and spiritual growth, responses to cults and false doctrine, etc., social and historical issues, and video plus tracts for printing. It is our prayer that this site, which should not be a substitute for a church, may be used of God to save and sanctify souls. To His glory, amen.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation [complete + final sacrifice] for our sins (1 John 4:9, 10).
Know that someone cares for you and your soul. No matter what country you come from, or what you look like, etc., or even your lifestyle, a faithful Christian will want to help you, and most importantly, help you know the one “who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal. 2:20), and to live for Him. This requires that we face some eternal truths about ourselves and about God, about our present condition and about eternity, and in our heart of hearts want truth over error, and a new life in Jesus over sin. So we urge you to please take some time for now and for eternity, and read and believe the most important message of your life!
Right now you are in one of two spiritual conditions, dead or alive, serving in one of two spiritual kingdoms, that of the devil's or that of God's, and headed for one of two entirely different eternal places, God's Heavenly City or the Lake of Fire! Unless you have been saved — “born again” by the Spirit of God — then your sins separate you from God, your Creator and giver of life, and you cannot enter or even enjoy the kingdom of God, a place of “righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Rm. 14:17). That leaves only one other place, a real place which is completely opposite of Heaven but just as eternal, a place of “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Mt. 8:12).
You MUST be saved, but as a sinner (and all have sinned), you are completely unable to save yourself on any merit of our own, nor that of any church. The only person that can save you is Jesus Christ, the Son sent by God the Father to save sinners (1Tim. 1:15), by His shed blood and righteousness.
It is this Jesus "who did no sin," but "went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil" by the power of the Holy Spirit (1Pet. 2:22; Acts 10:38). Yet after doing everything right, it was the sinless Son of God who took responsibility for all that we have done wrong, paying the price for the forgiveness of all our sins with His own sinless blood by His death on the cross, and was buried. As it is written, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all." “Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God" (Is. 53:6; 1Pet. 3:18).
But because Jesus alone was truly righteous, God the Father "raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory" (1Pet. 1:21), and who then appeared to many (1Cor. 15:3-8). It is this Jesus Christ who now reigns in Heaven as mankind's present Savior and future Judge!
It is because Jesus Christ was "God manifest in the flesh" (cf. Jn. 1:1,14; 2Tim. 3:16) and paid for your sins and rose again, that only He can save you. God looks at your life and sees that your good deeds can never redeem you, while your sins condemn you. But looking at His own sinless Son, He declares that what He did is enough to save anyone who truly believes on Him.
However, now you must respond. You were put on this earth to make one big decision above all the others. What you do with the Lord Jesus Christ — whether you receive Him or reject Him — reveals what you truly love, darkness or light, sin or Him, and determines not only the course of the rest of your present life but also where you will spend ETERNITY! This is the Ultimate Decision which you must make positively ― if you will yet be saved. By not deciding for Christ, you have already in fact rejected Him!
It is our earnest and sincere prayer that, by the grace of God, you will not reject Jesus as your Lord and Savior but will believe God's word and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins, and then be baptized, and follow Him.
Do not play games with your soul and put it off! "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2). "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation" (Heb. 2:3)? Do not sin away your day of grace, and live and die in your sins and wake up in Hell — to your eternal horror! Instead may you know the life that only Jesus can give, both now and for eternity.
Listen and obey the word of exhortation God graciously gives you. "Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon" (Is. 55:6, 7). Make your peace with God while you can, confessing yourself as a sinner in prayer to the LORD Jesus, and asking and trusting Him to save you. This decision is shown by being baptized in identification with your Lord, and following Him Who promises true believers, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee,” (Heb. 13:5) while warning against those who depart from the Living God. (Heb. 3:12; cf. Heb. 10:25-39; Gal. 5:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 3:5; 1 Corinthians 11:32
Those who truly believe will know both now and forever that they made the right decision, as to be saved and live for God is indeed the only right choice! And although in this world we will face real challenges to our faith, if we look to Jesus who said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33), we can overcome. Thanks be to God!

Please note however, that inclusion of these resources does not mean I agree with everything a site may include. Prayerfully search the Bible with a heart to know and obey what God teaches, according to Scripture and its means of establishing Truth.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:16-21, 36).
“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power; When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day” (2 Thessalonians 1:8-10).
