What We Believe

We Believe In a Holy, Righteous and Just God

We believe God is a Triune God – three in one or Trinity. 1 John 5:7

We believe Jesus is God in a human body, his humanity came through his mother who was a virgin when he was born. John 1:1-5, 1:14

We believe Jesus died for everyone, as a substitute. The need for him to die was because of our crimes committed against God called sin. God, being perfectly just, must require prosecution and sentence against every evil work but Jesus paid it ALL for ALL!

Sin – Disobeying God’s Rules/Commandments:

The Bible teaches that the sentence by God for every sin, big or small, is death. Sin kills and the proof of that is, everyone dies. The Bible says, “The Wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23.

The sinner’s eternal soul is judged by God and sentenced for their sin; As God is eternal, the place of eternal payment God set up is a place called the Lake of Fire. God doesn’t want anyone to go there. That is why he sent Jesus.

Salvation and Forgiveness of Sin

John 10:10 … I am come that they might have life…

We believe any sinner who will come to God in this life realizing they are guilty before God, and will accept Christ’s death as their substitute, God promises absolute forgiveness and eternal life. This forgiveness can’t be bought with good works, it can’t be paid for after the forgiveness is given, it is a gift for those who will take it. Romans 10:13

Living the Christian life

John 10:10b …and that they might have it more abundantly.

Those who take the offer of God’s salvation from sin should appreciate the sacrifice and live their life to please God, loving our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ and… THAT’S WHY WE ARE INVITING YOU TO GOSPEL LIGHT BAPTIST CHURCH.
