Holy Communion is a special time when God imparts His grace into the person receiving the elements of the sacrament. We believe that something mysterious and special happens at this time and we come even closer to Jesus in our hearts, and more like Him in our behaviors and attitudes. May the God of peace bless you through the grave of Jesus’ broken body and shed blood.
Baptism symbolizes 3 things: Jesus’s death, Jesus’ resurrection, and our obedience to Jesus. Choosing to be baptized reveals your commitment to follow Christ and testifies to Jesus’ victory over sin in your life. Baptism shows victory over sin and death in your life as you follow after the example of Christ!
Have you ever wanted more than simply being saved from your sins? Maybe you’ve felt the pull to a deeper relationship with Jesus or you have known deep within yourself that you have a purpose that goes beyond what you are currently experiencing.
God has something more for you! He wants to save you and then, to sanctify you! You can have victory over ALL sin and break the chains of slavery that sin has on you. Don’t let the devil tell you a lie that you’ll always be that way or that this is just the way you are.
Jesus did not die on the cross so that we would not change! Grab a hold of the power of the Holy Spirit! It’s the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead and there is no sin more powerful than that!
There are so many passages in scripture that should stop us dead in our tracks, and shake us into greater action as believers in Jesus Christ. Jesus wants us to be active. We should check ourselves and ask, “Am I doing the will of God?”, “Is it important?”, “What king of person should I to be?” These passages are wake up calls sending a resounding message to believers around the world to wake up and take serious action to serve and to help save the people around us.
Repentance is the key to true forgiveness, which is the key to true life. This Nazarene Article of Faith follows the command of Jesus to repent of our sins. This means so much more than just feeling bad. We must be led to repentance by the Godly sorrow that we experience. The Good News is that God will forgive everyone who repents!
