RELATIONSHIPS are very important to us at BACBC!
We have fellowships, small groups, and other resources for whatever place you are in life. There is one relationship that is the most important one you’ll ever have.
ARE YOU SURE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? YOU CAN BE!
A = Accept what God says in the Bible. You have sinned against God and the consequence of your sins is spiritual separation from God. Romans 3:23, 6:23
B = Believe on God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and arose from the dead in order to give us eternal life in heaven forever.
C = Come to God just as you are and trust Jesus as your personal Savior. Ask God to forgive you of your sins and give you eternal life as a free gift.
QUESTIONS? PLEASE CONTACT ANY OF OUR PASTORAL STAFF.
