For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(KJV Ephesians 2:8-9)
Hell is for people who reject Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
God sent His only Son, Christ Jesus to die for our sins. We must repent of our sin and call on the name of Lord Jesus Christ as our Savoir.
If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead. you will be saved.
There are great pastors in your community who want to help you.
Contact them and get involved in a local church.
We are all one family in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God bless you. Brother John. ❤️
I focus on simple bible truths from the bible that are taught in all Christian Churches. I was dedicated and baptized in a Pentecostal church. My family has been a part of the Canadian Pentecostal church for three generations.
My Statement of faith.
(1) The Bible is the Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16-17KNJ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
(2) Holy Trinity.
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. One God existing in three coequal, coeternal, consubstantial divine persons.
(3) Christians are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as revealed by Scripture alone, to the glory of God alone.
(4) Divine healing is for today.
God also gives us grace, hope and power during a sickness or suffering.
(5) The coming of Christ Jesus is the hope of all Christians.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 KJV For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
(6) Marriage is between a man and a woman.
Matthew 19:4-6 KJV And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
(7) Water baptism is in the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(8) The Lord's supper (Eucharist)
1 Corinthians 11:23-29 KJV
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
