How Can I Know Jesus?

God loves you so much that He gave His Son, Jesus, to die on a cross so that you can know Him. God's desire is to give you an abundant life now and an eternal relationship with Him. The most important decision in life is whether to accept or reject Jesus as or Savior. Knowing Jesus is a personal decision that each of us is called to make.

The link below will take you to a site prepared by Campus Crusade for Christ and a basic explanation of how you can know Jesus. If you have any questions about what it means to know Jesus or have come to trust in Him as your Savior we would like to hear from you. Please contact us!

How Can I Know Jesus?

The Bible teaches that each of us is like a child who needs to develop and grow in our relationship with God. If you have come to know Jesus as your Savior we wish to encourage you to take the following steps of growth:

Read the Bible

Try starting with the Gospel of John, reading a chapter each day.

"As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word (of God), that you may grow..." (1 Peter 2:2)


Spend time each day talking with God.

"Do no be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God..." (Philippians 4:6)


Regularly attend a church that honors Jesus Christ and teaches you the Bible.

"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.' " (Psalm 122:1)

"God is a Spirit, and those who worship Him, must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:24)


With Christians who will help you grow in faith.

"We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ." (1 John 1:3)


Tell others what Jesus means to you!

"But you will receive power, when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)
