Following Jesus

God wants to be involved in your life. He wants to hear what’s on your heart and communicate with you daily. He wants you to experience His love. And He wants you to be assured of eternal life with Him after your life on this earth is over.

Following Jesus

So, what exactly does it mean to “connect” with God?

Jesus died, but because He was God’s son, He didn’t stay dead. Read it for yourself… John chapter 20. And Jesus didn’t just rise from the dead, He CONQUERED death! He’s the link between us and God. Once we accept Jesus as our Savior, we can finally connect with God.

At WCIC, we believe that God cares about the intimate details of your life. Before you were born, He knew the exact number of hairs on your head (for some of us, that’s a more impressive feat than for others), and He even created you in His image! But now the tough part…

"Sin"—falling short of God’s high standards—keeps us from connecting with Him. Whether they’re little sins—like telling half-truths or saying something bad about a friend behind their back—or “big” sins, God is perfect and can’t stand sin. He won’t tolerate it. Back to the cross. Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross. Our sin gets crossed out.

If you’ve never stepped across the line of faith, you can do it right now, in the privacy of your home, office, or wherever you might be.

It's your choice. All you have to do is…

  1. Accept that Jesus is God’s son
  2. Believe that Jesus died for your sins
  3. Confess in your own words that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior

You can pray this prayer right now, and if you truly believe it in your heart, you’re good to go!

"Jesus, I admit that I have done things that have kept me from a relationship with You. I believe that You died to save me from my sins, and I now accept You into my heart as my Lord and Savior. Please take over in my life. I need You."

If you just prayed that prayer, congratulations! You’ve just initiated your connection with God! And now that you are a part of God’s family, we want to encourage you… get plugged in to a Bible-based church that can help you discover more about growing in your relationship with Jesus Christ.
