Common Questions

Jefferson Avenue Baptist Church, guided by the Word of God, and led by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, will seek to be a diverse, unified church focused on reaching people for Christ by sharing His love and compassion.

Mission Statement

How can someone obtain God's forgiveness, and spend eternal life with Jesus?

1. By believing the Jesus, God's only Son, died on the cross to forgive us of our sins.
2. By accepting Christ as your Savior, and Lord of you Life

FAITH is the belief or loyalty to God: with faith we believe the Bible is the Holy Word of God and that thru His Son, we can be saved by grace.

GRACE is a gift from God that grants us the eternal life we all seek, this gift is free as long as we accept God's Son and believe that He is the Way the Truth and the Life (John 14:6)

Accepting Christ is just the beginning of a wonderful adventure with God! Once saved, Christians typically express their decision by:

  • Following Christ's example in baptism (Scripture)
  • Joining a church where you can worship God & mature in your faith
  • Become involved in the various Bible studies and discipleship training sessions
  • Begin a daily personal devotion with God...a personal time of worship and study
  • Read the Bible and pray to God for the needs of others and yourself

Becoming a Christian is as simple as three steps:

Admit that you are a sinner.
Believe that Jesus is God's son and that He died on the cross to save us of our sins.
Confess your sins and trust in Jesus Christ to take care of your every need.

An example prayer that you can use to receive Christ as your personal Lord and Savior

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and have fallen short of your expectations in many ways. I believe that you died for my sins and through the faith in your death, I ask that you come into my heart and lead by life as my personal Savior and Lord. From this day on, I will follow you by living a life that pleases you. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving me. Amen.
