Who He Is

He is God the Son

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, the Promised One from the Old Testament, the Messiah.  In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  He has all authority and power and is the only one worthy of our praise and full allegiance.  It is Him who we praise and serve all the days of our life as we look forward to the day of His return and complete reign for all eternity.

*Baptist Faith & Message 2000

Salvation is in Him Alone

We are ALL in need of salvation because of our own sin and the sin nature we inherit.  The Bible says that by no other name can one be saved.  He is the only way to a restored relationship with our Creator, and the only way to a blessed eternal life with Him.  
 
You see, God created the world. We, His creatures, rebelled. But God, in unfathomable grace, sent His Son Jesus to live a righteous life, to die as the sacrifice for our sins, and to be resurrected to new life that we might be rescued and redeemed.
 
Through faith in Jesus Christ, we have been forgiven of our sins, welcomed as sons and daughters, and empowered by His Spirit to live lives that reflect His goodness and love. This is the gospel. This is our core passion and the source from which all of our other desires and ministries flow.
 
You cannot begin to bridge the gap between the perfect, holy God and your sinful heart except by trusting in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. But we believe that no one ever “gets past” the gospel. The gospel is the means of our entry into the family of God and the means for our continued growth in Christ.

Next Steps

Baptism:  If you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then baptism is your next step. This public symbol of our faith says that you were once dead, but now you are alive in Christ. It is your opportunity to tell your story in the way that Jesus commanded.
 
Connect: Making connections, and building relationships with other like-minded followers of Christ can help you in your Christian journey. Get connected by joining a Sunday School class or Life Group. These groups meet each week and are an excellent starting place for any new believer.
 
Grow in His Word and through serving:  It is essential to saturate your mind and soul with God’s Word on a daily basis. We want to help you in that endeavor.  Download the New Pleasant Church App by clicking below to access the chronological bible reading plan we use.
