WELCOME TO STARTINGPOINT
Starting a Relationship with God: Imagine there's someone you knew of, or had seen around, but didn't know personally. If you wanted to get to know them you might call or message them. To accomplish this you would need their contact information. Well, entering into a relationship with God works in somewhat the same way. We may have heard of God, or seen evidence of Him around us, but don't know Him personally. Thankfully God has given us His contact information in Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 2:8-10 the Bible says, "8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Notice in verse 10 that the relationship with God is "created" through "Christ Jesus," as we're "saved" from our sins and transformed into a new person "by grace...through faith" (verse 8). All the essential elements needed for starting and living in a relationship with God are provided in these verses. If put into an equation it would look like this: Grace + Faith = Salvation + Works. God's "grace" is provided "in Christ Jesus" death and resurrection, if we have "faith" in Jesus and what He did on the cross and overcame in the resurrection we are "saved," and the result of that salvation is "good works." So get started by trusting in Jesus, and we at Philadelphia Baptist Church are here to assist you as you do. If you want to talk more about getting this monumental fresh start on life you can contact our Pastor directly at firstname.lastname@example.org but know this: the only contact information you need to know for God is His one and only Son Jesus as "Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6.
Starting to Look at Our Church: The best way to see what Philadelphia Baptist Church is like is to attend one of our Sunday Morning Worship Services, and this is actually a great time to do so, because we're starting a New Summer Sermon Series entitled "What's The Point?" that explores the Parables of Jesus and letting Him answer this pertinent question. Our Sunday Services are at 10:30am, dress is casual, and visitors are always welcome. If you have any questions you can contact our Pastor directly at email@example.com
