ABOUT OUR CHURCH

Grace Baptist Church of Pekin

At Grace, you'll discover a church where you can lovingly worship God, where you can grow in your faith with others on the same journey, and where you can serve others by using the gifts God has given to you.  We're looking forward to meeting you in person and connecting you to what God is doing at Grace Baptist Church.

 
Bible

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9

FOR BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED...

Coming to know Jesus as your Savior...

Grace.  We all need it.  The favor of God; undeserved, unexpected, and freely given in love.  Our lives are lived day by day, by God's grace.  And, it's only by God's grace we are saved.  Would you like to know more?

The first thing you should realize is that God loves you.  John 3:16 says, "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."  He loves you no matter who you are or what you've done.

That's even more surprising when you realize that God makes it clear that every one of us is a sinner.  We've all broken God's laws, disobeyed His commands, and sinned against His holiness.  Romans 3:23 tells us, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

Are you still with me?  Good.  Here's where the bad news gets even worse... but not for long, so hang on all the way through.

Everyone needs to realize that their sin has an exremely high price that must be paid.  God tells us in Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death..."  Wages are what we have earned, what we deserve to be paid.  But, here is where the good news comes in.  The verse ends with these hopeful words, "...but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord."

 

Romans 5:8 explains it even more, "But God commendeth [demonstrated] his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Jesus is God Himself and he paid the high price for our sin; yours and mine, by taking our place and dying on the cross.  That's love!  That's mercy!  Yes, and that's grace!

That begs the question, "How should I respond?"  By believing.  Believe that Jesus is God; believe that He died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again from the dead three days later; and receive Jesus as your own Savior by trusting only in Him for forgiveness and the gift of eternal life.  Romans 10:13 assures you, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Please contact us if you still have questions about experiencing grace or if we can be of help to you in your new relationship with Christ.
