Who is Jesus?

We are excited to tell you about the hope and love of Jesus!

Jesus is the center of everything we do and believe in at Compassion Church.  

For it isn’t just what Jesus has done for us, but who He is. 

There are certain points we all need to understand about the salvation of Jesus.

First, we all are sinners.

We are all sinners and stand under the judgment of God.

Second, God loves us.

God loves us, and Jesus came to make forgiveness and salvation possible. He died on the cross as the complete sacrifice for our sins. He took on Himself the judgment that we deserve.

Third, God in His grace offers us.

God in His grace offers us the gift of eternal life. But like any gift, it becomes ours ONLY when we respond and receive it.

Fourth, salvation is intimately linked to Jesus.

Salvation is intimately linked to Jesus and the cross. Jesus’ virgin birth, by the miraculous intervention of the Holy Spirit, meant that He did not inherit a sinful human nature like we did. Neither did Jesus commit any sin during His lifetime. Jesus became the only perfect Man, and as such, He was uniquely qualified to put into action God’s plan of salvation for mankind.

On that cross, Jesus took the punishment of our sin. He was our Substitute. He suffered the judgment and condemnation of death that our sinful nature and deeds deserve.

Finally, faith is essential for salvation.

Faith is essential for salvation. But, there are various kinds of beliefs or faith, and not all are linked to salvation. In the New Testament, faith means more than intellectual belief. It involves trust and commitment. I may say that I believe a bridge will hold my weight. But I really believe it only when I commit myself to it and walk across it. Salvation faith involves an act of commitment and trust, in which you commit your life to Jesus Christ and trust Him alone as your Savior and Lord.

About Compassion Church

Salvation Prayer

Committing your life to Jesus is a personal and individual decision. By praying a prayer like this, you are inviting Jesus into your life and releasing your cares and worries to Him.

“Jesus, right now, I ask you to become Lord of my life. You are my Savior and I thank You for the sacrifice You made on the cross. I receive Your grace and confidently believe that my life is forever changed.

My life is no longer my own, for I give it to you. I ask you to come into my heart, change me, make me yours. To guide my life, to honor you, to serve you. 

In Your name I pray, Amen.”
