A new beginning
There’s always time to be in a relationship with God. We want to help you in that journey at Trace Ridge.
To be made whole, or to be saved, is to submit to God and his plan and purpose for our lives. It is a turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus, to ask him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in Him.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Salvation is God’s free gift to us and we become His children.
It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God, and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation.
Pray this prayer
There’s no right or wrong way to pray. To pray simply means to communicate with God; to talk privately with your Father. You can thank him, praise him, confess something to him, tell him your needs and dreams. You can talk to him like a friend — a friend who knows your heart and your sins and loves you anyway.
It’s ok to feel intimidated. If you know that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow him right now by praying the following prayer of surrender. To pray these words with a surrendered heart to Jesus is the beginning of the most important and rewarding journey of your life.
I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without you.
I am sorry and I trust that you will forgive me.
I accept your love and grace for me and ask that you would be my Lord.
Help me believe in you and love you every day, and help me to show the world what you are like and how great your love is.
In Jesus Name.
