The hope of Heaven is not based on the merits of man but on the mercy of God. Salvation will never be purchased by my good works, however, your eternal redemption was purchased by the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Jesus Christ, died as a sacrifice for sin that the world through Him might be saved (set free; delivered) from eternal death and condemnation. The Bible verse below, Romans 6:23, is divided into 3 parts to help you understand your need of a Saviour.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH
The Gift of God is Eternal Life
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
Our faith is anchored in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. At First Baptist we believe the Bible is the verbally inspired and infallible, authoritative Word of God; that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. We further believe that God has wonderfully preserved His Word in its smallest detail so that we might have His standard by which to live for His glory. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 24:35)
