Welcome!  I'm glad you stopped by.  This site is designed to help you and your family with some of life's questions.  The most important of which is, Where will you spend eternity?  Please read the ABC's of Salvation below to help you find your answer to this all importnt question.  God Bless You,  Dian

 

Please feel free to browse around.  It is my desire that while you are here you will gather information that will guide you into a deeper understanding of God's intimate love for you and the plan that He has for your life.

 

I also have other pages as you can see in the sidebar.  Please click on them and read them.  I hope you find something that you need and that you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.  God Bless You.

 

Coming home should be a welcomed event in our lives.  For some however, it is very sad and frightening.  Times are hard right now and you don't understand what will happen to you in the future.  Hopefully here you will find a peace and understanding of one who cares about every aspect of your life, God, your heavenly father who loves you more than life itself.

 
ABC's of Salvation:
 
A.  Admit that you are a sinner.  We all do things everyday that are not right, things that are not what God would have us do.  We need to ask God to forgive us our sins daily.
 
B.  Believe that Jesus is God's son and that he died for your sins and rose the third day so that we may have eternal life with him in heaven
 
C.  Confess Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life.  Ask Jesus to come into your heart and live in you and through you.
 
 
John 3:16 says, 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes on him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.'
 
God loved us so much that he sent his son Jesus to die for our sins so that we may have eternal life in heaven. 
 
Here is my testimony of when I asked Jesus into my heart at 7...
 

My Love Story in Jesus Christ

I was born to Christian parents. They nurtured me and saw that I was in church. My mother would read Bible stories to us every night before bed and we were taught to pray each night before bed. We were also taught to say the blessing before meals. This has carried on through my life until this day. They taught me to tithe my allowance and I still do this even now. My parents not only taught good Christian virtues, they lived them in front of us.

When I was seven years of age I began to have a feeling of urgency in my heart when my pastor would give the invitation at the end of the service. When he would ask that those who wanted to be saved would come down, I had a very strong feeling of urgency. I did not understand what was actually happening to me. One Sunday morning while my mother was getting ready for church I sat down next to her and told her about this feeling and ask if she could explain it to me. She began to tell me that God was speaking to me in my heart. She explained to me that God loves us and wants us to spend eternity with him. She said that we are all sinners and that we can’t be with God until we ask forgiveness for our sins and ask Jesus into our hearts. She said that Jesus was God’s son and that he died for our sins and rose from the dead the third day. Mother told me that if I believed that Jesus was God’s son and that he died for my sins and if I would tell God that I was a sinner and ask him for forgiveness, then I was ready to ask Jesus into my heart and I would be saved.

She answered my questions and we went on to church that morning. Some time later on April 27, 1958 I had this same feeling and was very afraid to move. My pastor said that if we would have enough faith to take the first step that God would take us the rest of the way. I totally believed him verbatim and I took that first step and the next thing I remember was taking my pastor by the hand and telling him that I wanted to be saved. At the moment that I asked Jesus into my heart through the Sinner’s Prayer, my feeling of sheer urgency changed to the most wonderful feeling of absolute joy that I had ever felt and have never felt that again in my life. It was truly the most wonderful experience in my life to this day.

God began a new work in my life from that point on. I have had many joys, successes and good times since that day. I have also had some very lonely, unhappy times in my life.

When God brought me to the church that I now attend, I was at the lowest point that I had ever reached in my life. Through the fellowship, friendship, music and the preaching of a very godly pastor, my heart was healed and God showed me through this time in my life that I could not fall from grace. He showed me that he loved me and would forgive me my sins and that I was his and he was not going to let anything happen to me and that he would always be there for me. God has used all the events of my life to make me who I am to this day.

I have since turned my life around through the love and grace of God and have been on 3 foreign mission trips and am planning another one. God is the light of my life and my goal is to serve him with everything that is in me to do so. The Great Commission is the ultimate goal of my life in my service to God. I do not fear death. I look forward to the time when I can come face to face with God and thank him in person for all he has done for me and for his son Jesus dying on the cross for my sins.

I try to live my life for God so that others may see the absolute happiness and joy that God brings into my life and that through his son Jesus Christ this life can be theirs. I only wish I did not have to work and could spend the rest of my days telling others about Jesus and his ultimate sacrifice for our sins so they too could have eternal life with him.

 If in reading this page you feel that God is wanting you to ask Jesus into your heart, please pray this prayer and ask Jesus into your heart. 

 Dear God,  I know that I am a sinner and I want to confess my sins to you and ask you to forgive me my sins.  I believe that Jesus is your son and that he died for my sins and rose the third day so that I may live with you forever in heaven.  I want to turn from my sins and live my life for you.  Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and live with me and help me to live for you from this moment.   Amen.
 
If you just prayed and asked Jesus into your heart, go and tell someone right now what just happened to you.  That will be the most awesome blessing you can have.
 
God may be wanting to use your experience to help someone else to come to Jesus.  If you did ask Jesus into your heart, He has a plan for your life.  GO TELL OTHERS ABOUT JESUS!!!  Just share exactly what happened to you. 

 If you prayed this prayer, I would love to hear about it.  Please contact me at the address below. 

Also you need to get yourself into a good Bible believing church and make your decision public by joining this church.  I urge you to get a Bible if you don't have one and begin by reading the book of John in the New Testament.  This book tells us of the relationship in Jesus Christ that we can experience each and every day of our lives.  After reading the book of John begin reading other books of the Bible.  The Old Testament tells us how people before Jesus time lived and had faith in God and told of the expected birth of Jesus, God's Son. The New Testament tells us of times after the birth of Jesus.  It also give us direction in our lives and you will find every answer to every problem that you have in your life in the Bible.

You should also spend time praying to God and seeking his will in your life.  Ask God to help you in your times of need and circumstances.  Pray about everything in your life.  Thank God for everything you have even down to the sugar in your cabinet.  He will answer your prayers and He is there 24/7 to comfort you and give you your needs.  Ask God to forgive you your sins.  Also pray for others in your life. 

By following these simple steps, your relationship with God will grow and mature and you will find that your life will be richer and more productive.
