“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. – Matthew 7:13-14
There are many paths to walk down in this life, but God wants you to know through His word that there is but one path to eternal life. Though He was rejected by men, Jesus is the only way to eternal life (Acts 4:12). God had a predetermined plan to send His Son to die on the cross for our sins (Acts 2:23). Jesus died, was buried, and rose again on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) fulfilling God’s part of the plan. It is up to us to respond to the plan set forth in the New Testament:
- Our faith comes from hearing the word of God and no other source (Romans 10:17)
- Once we hear the gospel message, the soul saving response is to believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God (John 8:24)
- We must be willing also to confess that fact before men (Matthew 10:32)
- We must also repent (turn) from our sins in godly sorrow for what we had done (Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38)
- To be added by God to His Church, we must then be baptized for the remission of our sins (Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, 1 Peter 3:21)
- Then, as a Christian, we must be faithful unto death (Revelation 2:10)
Are you ready to explore the narrow path that leads to life? We can help! Contact us to engage in bible studies or just a conversation about the path you are on and which path God wants you to follow.
August’s study will cover Chapter Four: “Generosity: The Gifts of Gratitude.”
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
Generosity. Where is your gratitude directed? Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness”. (Genesis 1:26) Tassie Helene Smith in her book titled “Women of Action” has some thoughts: “What gifts does God want from Christians, and how are they to be given?”
Come join us for our next class as we study the lessons from her book: Saturday, August 3, 2019 at 10:30 AM. We will be meeting at a member’s home this month. If interested, please contact us for location and directions.
- The Generosity of God

SEE YOU THERE!!!
2 Timothy 2:15 tells us that we should study to show ourselves approved unto God. In Acts 17, the Bereans searched the scripture daily to see if such things they were being told were true. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 states that all scripture is inspired by God, is useful for doctrine, correcting, proving, and teaching so that we will be complete and ready for all good works.
God’s word should be the most important thing in our life to have because it will judge us (John 12:48-50), it is the source of our faith (Romans 10:17), and is our light on our path of life (Psalm 119:105). Want to study with us? We study every Wednesday at 7PM and every Sunday at 9:30AM
