Greetings and Welcome to New Birth New Life Ministries!
Our hope is that you will come to realize and to know the great love that God has for each of you!
“There is no greater love than this: that a man would lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:3) God demonstrated His love for all of us by sending Jesus, His Son, to die for us so that we may have eternal life! John 3:16 declares, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Man has often asked and sought the answer to “why are we here?” Many have offered thoughts and opinions to this question, leaving people confused or having them going in the wrong direction. To help us with this answer, God brought forth His Son, who said “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.” (John 14: 6)
Though man was originally created by God in His own image, man became separated from God through sin and the evil work of Satan (Genesis chapters 1-3). However, when Jesus showed up to save, redeem and restore us, alot of the world could not recognize Him and would not receive Him. The bible says, “He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” (John 1: 1-13)
But how do I become a child of God? One man in a certain time and in a certain place, seeing the power of God, said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved? So they said, "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household.” (Acts 16: 30-31) And again the bible declares, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10: 9-10)
Now when you believe and receive Jesus as your Savior, your sins will be forgiven, you will become born again, by the Spirit of God, and thereby you will be able to enter the kingdom of God. A man once asked, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” Jesus replied, “Unless one is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” (John 3: 4-5) Those who recieve Jesus become "born again" through the Holy Spirit and receive a brand new life in Him!
New Birth New Life Ministries is about bringing people to this “born again” experience, entering into the kingdom of God, and learning to live and walk in this NEW LIFE that God came to give! Yes, there is life as we know it now. But, it won’t last and it won’t fulfill! However, the life that the Jesus brings through forgiveness and through the Holy Spirit both fills us now and carries us all into eternal life!
Jesus said,"I am the door and if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” ( John 10:9-10)
Right now, if you choose to believe in your heart and want to receive Jesus as your Savior, simply say this prayer to the Lord and you will become saved and born again: "Heavenly Father, I choose to believe that you sent Jesus to die for me! I know that I am a sinner in need of a Savior and I ask Jesus right now to come into my heart and my life this day. Save me, forgive me of all of my sins, be my Lord and Savior, and I ask You to fill me with your Holy Spirit, Who comes to live in me and to help me to live and grow in You. Amen!"
If you prayed that prayer, welcome to the family of God and your new life in Him! You are born again! Yes, God made it that simple! The rest of your life is to learn and to grow in your faith by 3 simple steps: Pray regulary, read the bible often, and be sure to go to church, which God has established for you, for fellowship and for learning and growing in Him! Any church the preaches Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will suffice! Just ask the Lord where to begin to go! Also, please contact us and let us know you said this prayer so that we may rejoice with you and even pray for you! Amen!
