"go ye therefore, and teach all nations..." matt 28:19
reach The World
We are at an exciting time in history. The ability to reach people in all parts of the world is easier now than ever before. Our library is available if you have missed a sermon or would like to hear the word of God preached.
from the pastor
The main objective of Bethel Baptist Church is to carry out the work the Lord gave us in Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
In verse 19 we are instructed to teach all nations. I would like to share with you exactly what we are to teach to these nations.
We Are A Sinner
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
This tells me that no matter how good of a person you are you can’t reach God’s standards. We are born with the nature to sin. This is called sin nature.
Because We Are A Sinner We Are Destined For Hell
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
In both of these verses we are told how serious our condition is. We are condemned to a place of suffering, all because we are a sinner. You must know that there’s nothing you can do to avoid this place. We are born a sinner and that alone makes us guilty.
God Loves Us And Made A Way For Us To Escape Hell And Gain A Relationship With Him
16 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.
This verse shows us the love of the Father in heaven. He gave his only begotten Son so we can have everlasting life. The requirement is that we must put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Jesus took our sins and paid the price.
Salvation Is By Grace Through Faith
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
If you haven’t been saved, I pray that you will put your faith in Jesus.
