Do you realize that you are in need of the Father’s forgiveness?
“Today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43
Have you realized and confessed Jesus as your personal Savior?

Jesus is concerned for us and provides for all of us.
“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46
Jesus was forsaken so we don’t have to be.
“I thirst!” John 19:28
This personal statement reminds us that Jesus is not only God, but He also was man. Jesus identifies with our needs.
“It is finished!” John 19:30
Jesus paid for our sins, and sin’s control over our lives is broken!
“Into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Luke 23:46
You can entrust your life into God’s hands.
