The Need for Salvation

 ...knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers... -1 Peter 1:18

The value of the human being can be inferred from the great price paid to redeem man (John 3:16; 1 Cor. 6:20). God the Son through whom the world was created, became flesh and died for the sins of humanity. That He willingly shed His blood and died for us reveals not only the value God places on the human personality, but also shows our desperate need of salvation.

Through Christ, believers are forgiven, reckoned to be righteous and renewed in the image of God. Fallen men and women can only produce the works of the flesh. Only the Spirit, by the New Birth, can renew and recover that which was destroyed by the Fall (John 3:5, 6).

To reach our highest potential, to have abundant life, to receive forgiveness and be free from condemnation, to live in communion with Father God, and to find renewed purpose for living, we must accept Jesus Christ by faith.
