The ABC’s of Becoming a Christian

We believe that “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” Our greatest desire is for you to come to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.

Admit That You Are A Sinner

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”    Romans 3:23

 

Believe That Jesus Christ Died For You On The Cross

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

 

Confess Jesus As Your Lord And Savior

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”; Romans 10:9

GOD’ PERFECT PLAN OF SALVATION

You are Lost

The Bible plainly tells us that our sin separates us from God. You are not alone, for the Bible says;

“…there is none righteous, no, not one”  Romans 3:10

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  Romans 3:23

All Deserve Hell

The Bible shows how the fallen world has refused a righteous God and has chosen the path to Hell. God sends nobody to Hell, we decided with our rebellion to go there ourselves.

“For the wages of sin is death…”  Romans 6:23a

God Provided for Our Salvation

Romans 6:23 starts by showing our deserved death in Hell. However, the next word is the most glorious word God could use, the word “but,” giving us another way.

“…BUT the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 6:23b

We Are Saved By Faith

We cannot save ourselves, it is a gift of God by sending His son to die on the cross, the just for the unjust, as a punishment for our sins.

“If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”  Romans 10:9
We look forward to ministering to your needs while we joyfully fellowship with each other and with Jesus Christ. Learn how to find the one true road to Heaven and serve our Lord effectively as we walk with Him in the world below.

BAPTISM

 


If you have accepted Christ, maybe even years ago, but you’ve never been baptized, why not now?

Baptism is the outward expression of an inward decision. If you have accepted Christ, we would love to baptize you and share this special decision with you to go public with your faith! To let us know of your interest to be baptized, complete the form below. We will notify you as soon as we schedule our next baptisms.


Last Year, Padgett’s Creek performed a river baptism where 41 people either rededicated themselves or were baptized for the first time and there is another being scheduled right now! Congratulations, in advance, on taking this step of faith!
