          Southside Baptist Church, is a             small-town, conservative church on the edge of Stillwater. There are no strangers at Southside; whether a first time visitor or a weekly attender, we are all family when we gather to worship.

At Southside, we view the Bible as Absolute Truth; written by God to teach, guide, and comfort His children. Our beliefs in the simplest terms are this: the Bible is God’s Word, Jesus is God’s Son, salvation is God’s gift given to us through His Son and explained in His Word. 

What do you understand it takes for a person to go to heaven? Consider how the Bible answers this question: It’s a matter of FAITH

 

F is for FORGIVENESS
We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness. Read Ephesians 1:7a.
A is for AVAILABLE
Forgiveness is available. It is-
• Available for all. John 3:16 says, “For God loved the world in this way:[a] He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
• But not automatic. Matthew 7:21 says, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven.”
I is for IMPOSSIBLE
It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.
• Because of who he is: God is loving and just. His judgment is against sin. James 2:13a says, “For judgment is without mercy to the one who hasn’t shown mercy.”
• Because of who we are: Every person is a sinner. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
But how can a sinful person enter heaven when God allows no sin?
T is for TURN
Turn means to repent.
• Turn from something; sin and self. Luke 13:3b says, “unless you repent, you will all perish as well!”
• Turn to someone; trust Christ only. Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
H is for HEAVEN
Heaven is eternal life.
• John 10:10 says, “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.”
• John 14:3 says, “If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.”
How can a person have God’s forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? By trusting in Christ and asking him for forgiveness. Take the step of faith described by another meaning of FAITH: Forsaking All I Trust Him.
 

Prayer: ‘Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have displeased You in many ways. I believe You died for my sin and only though faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven.I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord. From this day on, I will follow You by living a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me. Amen.’

After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, tell a Christian friend about this important decision you have made. Follow Christ in believer’s baptism and church membership. We at Southside would love to encourage you as you become a part of God’s family!
