Come along and hear a talk this Sunday at 2.15PM on the subject:
•The Bible is God’s word.
•There is only one God.
•Jesus is the son of God.
•Jesus died for our sins and was raised to eternal life.
•Jesus will come back from heaven to the earth to set up God’s Kingdom.
•Jesus will judge the living and the dead and those who are worthy will be given everlasting life in that perfect kingdom.
•To be a part of this we must follow God’s command to believe and be baptised. If we are then we can be saved.
The Bible teaches us that God is the creator of all things and the father of Jesus Christ. He is one God (not a trinity) and we must do our best to love and serve him.
We know that Jesus is God’s son who, although he was born a man and tempted to commit sin, lived a sinless life. He died for our sins and was raised by God to eternal life. Through his sacrifice we can be saved.
Kingdom of God
We are told that Jesus will be returning to the Earth to set up God’s kingdom. This will be an everlasting worldwide kingdom, inhabited by men and women free from sin, death, suffering and sorrow. Jesus will judge the living and the dead when he returns to the Earth and those who have believed and followed him will be given a place in the kingdom. We are not told exactly when this will be, but we believe it will be soon and therefore we must be ready.
Baptism into Jesus is a commandment of Christ. It is the full immersion in water of an adult as a sign that they believe in the things concerning the kingdom of God and the death and ressurection of Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of being buried with Jesus and raised to new life, washing away past sins to start again. After baptism we all still sin, but we can be forgiven if we repent. We must be baptised if we want to be in God’s kingdom.
