IS MY HOPE
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE MADE THE BEST DECISION!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FOLLOW JESUS?
You have decided to become a part of God's family and make Jesus the Lord of your life. We are excited to see you take this first step in your journey with Jesus.
We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness.
Romans 3:23 says this, "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard."
We can’t earn God’s forgiveness – it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven.
"But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8 NLT
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23 NLT
We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus.
"If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 NLT
We believe the best way to start this journey of faith now is by reading the Bible. The Bible shows us God's character and provides us God's revelation of himself to his people. We have provided a Bible reading plan that guides you where to start reading. Click on the link below and select Highland Park Church as your church and begin the plan!

WHY DO YOU GET BAPTIZED?
Baptism is proclaiming your identity in Christ.
