  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: The Lord has given us all a privilege to live this one day and this one day only. Never expect to be given tomorrow. Make for sure your soul is right with God. Study His Word. Jesus came and died for every person that lives in this world. He said he was the only way to heaven, so begin by believing in him. Then commit your life to him by forsaking sin and repenting from it. Confess Him as your Lord and Savior. Then be baptized and added to the Lord’s Body. Walk day by day for the Lord seeking and doing his will. The by the Grace of God you will be blessed to be with him for eternity.
