    Founded in 1981, Heritage Baptist Church is an independent, Bible-believing Baptist church dedicated to exalting the Lord Jesus Christ for He is the Savior and hope of the world!

 

 

Those without Christ have no hope and are without God in the world!

Our Sin (selfishness, lying, worry, lust, etc.) Created this Hopeless Condition and  built a wall between us and God!

   "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." 

   - Isaiah 59:2, KJV

   "That at that time ye were without Christ...having no hope, and without God in the world;"

   - Ephesians 2:12, KJV

But Christ Jesus Broke down this wall by His Blood!

  "But now in Christ JESUS ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath...

   broken down the middle wall of partition (barrier) between us;" - Ephesians 2:13-14, KJV

 

Who is this Jesus and what gives him the right to break down this wall of sin between us and God?

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh..."

- I Timothy 3:16, KJV

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins...Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,

which being interpreted is, God with us."

- Matthew 1:21, 23, KJV

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." - John 1:1, KJV

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." - John 1:14, KJV

"To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself..." - II Corinthians 5:19, KJV

"...the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood." - Acts 20:28, KJV

"There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Emmanuel's veins,

and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains!"

- From the Old Hymn by William Cowper

Jesus Christ is the LORD God and became flesh in order to die on the cross to pay for the sins of the whole world, including your own!

The blood that Jesus shed on the cross for your sins was the literal blood of Almighty God!

"...Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And...he was buried, and...rose again the third day according to the scriptures."

- I Corinthians 15:3-4, KJV

You Must Believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, to Receive Forgiveness and Cleansing from your Sin and to begin a Personal Relationship with God the Father!

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." - John 1:11-12, KJV

 "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."

  - John 3:16, KJV

  "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;

but the wrath of God abideth on him."

  - John 3:36, KJV

What does it mean to believe in Jesus and to believe on his name?

It is not just a mental assent to the fact that he existed at one time in history

or even just a mental acceptance that he died on the cross and rose again.

To believe on Jesus means to fully accept who He is and fully rely on what He did to save you!

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

- Romans 10:9, 10, 13, KJV

God's Word (the Bible) is very clear about the fact that Jesus Christ is literally the Lord God manifest in flesh!

"And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."

- Exodus 3:13-14, KJV

"Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Then they took up stones to cast at him..."

- John 8:58-59, KJV

Not everyone will believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Lord, literally God in the flesh, the I Am that I Am,

but to reject this truth is to remain lost and without hope!

"Then Jesus said unto them... if ye believe not that I am (he), ye shall die in your sins." - John 8:21, 24, KJV

Take God at His Word! Believe that Jesus is who He said He is and trust Him alone to save you today! 

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?

he that hath seen me hath seen the Father..." - John 14:6-9, KJV

 

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

- Acts 4:12, KJV

"...trust the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe." - I Timothy 4:10, KJV

"Wherefore he is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

- Hebrews 7:25, KJV

While the Lord Jesus Christ is the One Who Liveth Forever, you will NOT live forever on this earth!

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." - Hebrews 9:27, KJV

"...prepare to meet thy God..." - Amos 4:12, KJV

Don't put it off! Trust Jesus today! Don't gamble with your soul! Hell is forever!

"Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth." - Proverbs 27:1, KJV

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." - Revelation 21:8, KJV

Believe on Jesus Today! Now is the accepted time! Today is the day of salvation!

Your sin must be paid for!

 

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

- Romans 6:23, KJV

 

Either Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to Receive Him as the payment for your sins today, or put it off and risk dying and going to Hell and then the Lake of Fire forever to pay for your sins yourself for all eternity.

Reject the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour today, tomorrow for you will be spent either here on Earth or in Hell! The fact of the matter is that none of us know what tomorrow will bring. Someone reading this right now could be dead tomorrow only to find themselves engulfed in the flames of Hell!

 burning in hell

If you believe that you are a sinner on your way to Hell and that the Lord Jesus Christ is your only escape from eternal punishment in that awful place, and if you believe that your sin has offended the One and Only Perfect and Holy Almighty God the Father and that He has every right to cast you into Hell for rejecting His Son Jesus, who again, is Almighty God in human flesh, and if you are sorry for your sin and you are willing for God the Holy Spirit to make you new, giving you the desire to live a holy life which will automatically be at war with your flesh and your own sinful desires for as long as you shall live, then humbly pray this prayer:

 

"Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner because I have broken God's Holy Law. And because of my sin, I believe that God has every right to damn me to Hell and then the Lake of Fire forever, but because of your love for me, you willingly died on the cross, was buried, and rose again the third day to pay for my sins so I don't have to go to Hell to pay for them myself, and right here and now, Jesus, I believe that You are the Lord, literally God in the flesh, and I am placing my trust in You and You alone to save me. Oh God, I am sorry for my sins and I am willing for You to change me and make me new, giving me the desire to live according to Your Word. Thank you for saving me! In Jesus' Holy Name I pray, Amen!"

 

If you prayed that prayer from your heart, we believe you are now born again and the Holy Spirit of God now lives inside of you! However, He is the only One that can give you this assurance by bearing witness with your spirit, and if He is truly present in your life, He will begin to change you! You will not all of a sudden be completely perfect, never sinning again, but from now on, the Holy Spirit will convict you when you do sin! And when you sense this conviction, the best thing to do is confess that sin to God and ask Him by faith to enable you by His Spirit to conquer that sin! This is what the Bible calls repentance!

 

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." - I John 1:8-9, KJV

 

"My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:" - I John 2:1, KJV

 

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." - Romans 8:37, KJV
