God, in His special design, called Pastor Stephen Brown to Salem, Oregon in the fall of 1996. He came with a desire to tell this city of Jesus Christ and His love for them. For the past 23 years, that is what has happened. This too would be the very reason Salem Baptist Church has a website, that all may know of Jesus and the way to Heaven through His sacrifice for them. There is a tremendous need that all people be made right before God. Why? “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” No sin can enter Heaven. Is it important for sin to be taken care of? “For the wages of sin is death…” Death speaks of physical and spiritual separation from God forever in a place called hell. Unpleasant, yes, but none the less true according to the Bible. The Gospel is what all need to know. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
When God gave His Son, Jesus, He paid the price for all our sin. Jesus paid for all sin by shedding His blood on the cross. Jesus was the only perfect sacrifice for sin, for He was without sin. A Christian is one who has trusted the completed work of Jesus on the cross for salvation. One must believe the Gospel to be saved. Paul told the people of Corinth, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
Have you accepted Jesus as the only way to Heaven? If not, today is the day!
