GOSPEL OF CHRIST INTERNATIONAL
Art Anderson, Founder
Stairway to Heaven
WELCOME to our website. Our goal is to introduce people to God and Jesus Christ for those that may have never seen a Bible to those that are aware of their existence but lack personal knowledge of their relationship to man.
"In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth." Gen. 1:1 God created man from the dust of the earth and breathed into him the breath of life and he became a living soul. (Gen. 2:7) God created man in his image and in his likeness; therefore, man has a body, soul and spirit. Man is God's only creation with a soul and since it has the breath of life, it will never cease to exist.
The first man, Adam was created a perfect man. But Adam disobeyed God and sinned by eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Man has been in a fallen state before God ever since Adam fell out of favor with God.
But God made a way for man's redemption via his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, whom has been referred to as the second man Adam. Adam fell but Christ did not. He gave his life so that man could have eternal life and an everlasting relationship with God.
God created hell for the devil and his angels, but people that reject the salvation that Christ paid for with his life shall go there for eternality.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
". . . how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" Rom. 10:14
My goal is to teach the lost sinners the way of salvation. Salvation is not a religion, but a relationship with Jesus Christ that ensures eternal life.
There are four things that a person must do to be saved:
1) People must realized that they have sinned against the laws of God.."All have sinned. . . ." Rom. 3:23; 2) " . . . I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6; 3) We must repent of our sins. ". . . not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9; and 4) Believe on Christ. "Believe is mentioned 237 times in the New Testament. "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Rom. 10:10. To believe is to have faith and faith comes by "hearing the word of God." Rom. 10:17.
It is not difficult to believe in Jesus Christ. Not only does the Bible record the narrative of His life on earth, but the prophets of the Old Testament times foretell of His coming, but secular history verifies that that an extradentary individual was on earth about 2000 years ago that was crucified by the Romans alone with a thousand or so other Jews, and Pilate was sentenced to death for the unjust death of Christ. The Bible is true. Christ came and gave His life so that mankind could have eternal life. We can accept His gift of salvation or reject it. Pilate had a choice of what to do with Christ and so do we--accept Him or reject Him?
Our primary GOAL is to reach as many unbelievers as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ via teaching the Bible, revivals, gospel singings, etc. Our secondary GOAL is to inform people--especially church goers of the evil agenda of the liberals and RINOs--a/k/a "Republican in Name Only." Just as Satan could not achieve his evils deeds without people willingly doing his deeds for him; the liberals and RINOs could not achieve there evil agendas without support of Republicans. This behavior needs to change NOW!
I would be the first to admit that many--perhaps most--Republicans are not saints; however, as a lot, they are not as evil as the liberals and RINOs.
Christians have simply got to get out and vote. By fifty percent of the voters setting out elections, the bad guys are winning.
Many preachers of different faiths are speaking out on this issue and rightly so.
