Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

salvation and redemption...

salvation and redemption

We must labor at doing good
(which is pleasing to God)

This should be done through
love, praise, trust and faith,
not out of duty (but a labor of love)...
and only with the knowledge
that we can never be good enough.

Thanks be to God
for His loving grace
and for the sacrifice
of His Son, Jesus Christ...
for this is the only way
to salvation and redemption
(the forgiveness of sin).

"For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life."
- John 3:16 NIV

"For God did not send his Son
into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him."
- John 3:17 NIV

"For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God - not by works,
so that no one can boast."
- Ephesians 2:8,9 NIV
