WHAT IS YOUR NEXT STEP?
We live in a world full of goodness and suffering and sometimes it is hard to make sense of it all. Is there a God who made all of this or are we here by chance? If there is a God, why do we suffer? The Bible teaches us that there is a God who made everything, including his most prized creation, us. God is filled with love and mercy towards us, but he will not force us to love him. Rather, God is looking for a relationship of mutual choice and love.
When God created the first human beings, they chose to walk away from God. Ever since that day, our world has suffered because we have distanced ourselves from him and his goodness. Even though he is full of mercy and forgiveness, he is also a just God and thankfully so. He cannot allow harmful behaviors, our sins, to go unpunished. But, there is hope!
God gave us a second chance by becoming one of us. God became human, in the form of Jesus. He sacrificed his own life, paying the penalty of sin, so that we may live. God loves you THAT much!
God is not willing that any should perish but that all would turn away from their sins and turn back towards him. When you place your faith in the sacrifice of Jesus, you are turning back to God, and God, who is a loving parent, will welcome you home with open arms. Won't you turn your life back to him today?

After you put your faith in Jesus, God will give you the Holy Spirit, whose presence cleanses you from all your sins, guaranteeing your eternal life in heaven. This is also called the "Baptism of the Holy Spirit." It happens as soon as you turn back to God. For those who have already put their faith in Jesus as Savior, God calls us to demonstrate this choice through the public, physical act of water baptism. Participating in water baptism declares to the world that you are now a follower of Jesus, your sins have been washed away, and you have been raised again to a new life. Won't you consider taking this next step? Please contact us if you would like to baptized at Trinity Church.
Once you have placed your faith in Jesus, you are bonded to all others who have done the same. This is called the universal church and every believer is a member. However, the Bible also calls us to belong to a local "body" of believers so that we may be built up and encouraged as we journey together in faith. Have you found a church home yet? If not, please contact us if you are interested in becoming a member of Trinity Church.
