COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD'S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

THE PLAN OF SALVATION (NKJV)

 Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of Saving
•James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”
•Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
•Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
•Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Turn to God in Repentance
•Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
•Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;”

•Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

•Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?
•Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

•Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to SALVATION, IT IS WORTH IT! 

 CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

  3. Loved the blog as always with the Steps of Salvation that you have in it showing where it is stated in the Bible. And I love how you have it laid out. A very good tool to share with others. I really love the message about getting the man to go to church. That is very important. I feel like though that the mom is usually the one who pushes everyone to get out the door to church every Sunday morning.

  4. I just read the prayer requests & we will be praying for you Pastor Bill that the Polyp will be benign. We know it really helps to pray. My goodness they must have cut out quite a bit for Kathy to need plastic surgery. We will pray for all to go great. Blessings. Love.

  5. Hi PB and K
    Jesus gave us a life boat and He remains the Light House for those on the sea of life. I sure am thankful for The Light that came into this world.
    Works are a result of Salvation for sure.... to bad that works are too often left out after salvation .... James did set those sluggards straight.
    As Abraham, we all need an attitude of gratitude to the giver of life and Abundant life at that.

    PB another church is closing its doors in Hazen - the Congregational Church had a meeting last Sunday and decided to close their doors......
    It seems no one wants to be committed to a church - just to be an independent spirit doing their own thing. I believe the message we gave was very timely.

    God's Best to You and Kathy You remain in our prayers
