Do we believe?

Belief has got to be more than a thought, more than a mental ascension, more than a feeling. When we truly believe in something, we step out and take action based on that belief. Our beliefs determine our actions. For the Christian, belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God who died for our sins, forgave us, and has given us His grace… changes everything. It changes everything.

This kind of sincere belief will result in radical action. We can no longer go on living the way we used to live. We can no longer be comfortable living for temporal, earthly, and fleshly things. Pride, lust, selfishness, and greed begin to fall off… because we believe. We have a deep desire to obey the King of Kings who ransomed us from eternal separation from God. We become desperate for more of God and we willingly lay down our rights and our very lives for Jesus Christ. Truly believing changes everything. Our worldview changes, our desires change, our lives change – for real!

"We have a deep desire to obey the King of Kings who ransomed us from eternal separation from God."...living a life seperate from God, left me living a life of quiet desperation. I seemed to have it all: looks, popularity, money and a "good" education. However, I was actually very selfish: I needed others to feel important, I used them to feel better about myself. I didn't really care about them (although they thought I did)...and I almost convinced myself that I did, but the truth is I cared more about them liking me. Pride was my downfall! However, when others told me about God and showed me His goodness, by their goodness, my life radically changed. Just like Pastor said: "Pride, lust, selfishness, and greed began to fall off…" because I believe. I have a deep desire to bring faith, hope and Love to people. God is love, so choose to live a life of real unselfish love, you will forever be grateful that you did! "I Am!"
