Q: What Is The Holy Communion And Why Do We Partake In It?

The partaking of the Holy Communion is a time where we remember all that Jesus had done for us. We partake of a substance that symbolizes His body and His blood to remind ourselves that Jesus paid the price for our salvation and physical healing; that we are in a New Covenant with Him, and also that he will be coming again.

• 1 Cor 11:23-26 : For I received from the Lord that which O also delivered to you; that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me. In the same manner, He also took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My Blood. This, do; as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lords death till He comes.
Holy Communion - Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.

Q: Do You Believe?

Do you believe that all of us sin and fall short of God's expectations ?
Do you believe that you have sinned during your life ?
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is God's Son ?

Do you believe that Jesus:

1) lived a sinless life;
2) died for your sins;
3) rose from the grave on the third day;
4) presently sits at God's right hand?

Do you believe that if you:

1) ask God to forgive you of your sins;
2) turn away from your sins;
3) ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and take control of your life, God will forgive you of your sins and Jesus Christ will come into your heart?

IF YOU DIED RIGHT NOW, ARE YOU 100% SURE YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?

The first thing God says is that we are all sinners. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

Each of us, at one time or another, has been a part of making mistakes, wrong decisions, and doing things that we later wished had never happened. Jesus is the only man who ever lived a perfect and sinless life. The rest of us need his help to keep on the right track toward Heaven so that we can one day be with Him.

The Bible teaches that there is a price tag on sin. Romans 6:23 says "for the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

God sent Jesus, His only Son, to come to earth as a man. Jesus died on the cross to save each of us from the sins we have committed and He paid the price so that we might have eternal life. This eternity is not for everyone, but it is for those who confess their sins before God and ask for forgiveness of these sins. Then and only then are we free to receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior. With His help, our future will be brighter because we can rely upon Him and call upon Him, not only in our times of need, but also in our times of happiness and great joy. Jesus is the answer to all our questions, our problems, our ups and our downs. It is through Jesus that we are able to know the right thing to do, and it is by His help that we are able to do it!

• Romans 5:8 says, "But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus paid the penalty for all sin when He shed His blood and died on the cross.

This is what you need to do to be saved.

• Romans 10: 13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." If you will call upon the Lord right now and ask Him to save you, He will do it.

We read in Romans 10:13, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." What does whosoever mean? The whosoever is ANYBODY!  That means YOU too!  When you prayed the prayer, on whom did you call? JESUS! And what did you ask Jesus to do for you? TO SAVE YOU!

What Is Jesus Going To Save You From?

He is saving you from Hell !

We are so happy you have called upon Jesus, and if you sincerely said this prayer, you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and Jesus has come into your heart. We look forward to spending eternity with you in heaven!

As a next step, we encourage you to:
Attend a Bible-believing church and make a public profession of faith. Now that you are saved, the first thing Jesus wants you to do for Him is to let others know that you have accepted Him. Jesus died for you and now He has saved you. Here is your chance to do something for Him.

Tell others. The way to do that is to come to church and walk up front when the Pastor gives the altar call or invitation. You tell the pastor you got saved and he will tell the people.

• Romans 10:10 & 11 says, "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed".

We don't want to be ashamed of Jesus because Jesus was not ashamed of us. He publicly hung on the cross when he died for our sins!

• Matthew 10:32, Jesus says, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before Men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven."

Isn't it wonderful to know that Jesus will tell God about us because we have told people here on earth about Jesus! If we confess Jesus, then Jesus will confess us before God the Father.
This is our opportunity to do something for Jesus, and He will acknowledge us to God because we are not ashamed to tell others about Jesus. Going forward during a church service, once the invitation is given, is our opportunity to show people that we are not ashamed of Jesus. In fact, you can tell someone right now too.

Just pick up your phone and call someone you know.  Tell them that you have just received Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.
