God is Good and Kind

God has revealed Himself to humanity to be a God of love, grace, mercy and patience. God is longsuffering with humanity and wants all to be saved and to be born again that is born of the water of the Spirit and that includes you.

Our Lord God is holy and righteous and must punish sin. His mercy goes to those who believe and repent and He does not extend to those who flaunt His patience and reject His gift of salvation.

If we accept Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, who gave His sinless life on Calvary Cross to make salvation possible for everyone who believes. This gospel news is of great eternal importance to all living today.

Therefore, believe, repent and turn your life over to Him today!

James 1: 17-18 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of His creatures.”

Answer me, O Lord, for Your lovingkindness is good: According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me.” (Psalm 17:7) Wondrously show Your loving kindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand from those who rise up against them.” (Psalm 31:21)

Prayer for Salvation:

Lord Jesus Christ, I do believe You are the Son of God and that You died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. Please forgive me. I turn away from sin and choose to live a life that pleases You. Enter my life as my Savior and Lord.


I want to follow You and make You the leader of my life. Thank You for Your gift of eternal life and for the Holy Spirit, who has now come to live in me. I ask this in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

The LORD God puts His Spirit inside you, who enables you to live a life pleasing to Him. He gives you a new life that will never die, that will last forever – eternally. When you surrender your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you are making the most important decision of your life on earth.
