So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but
you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure,
being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
In Him you also are being built together into a
dwelling place for God by the Spirit.  (Ephesians 2:19-22, ESV)

Become a follower of Jesus. He is the heart of Christianity.
Accept the invitation to become
part of
the body of Christ, the family of the Lord.
Decide to join the Kingdom of God, His chosen people.

Receive, by grace, eternal life.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation, God's special possession,
that you may declare the praises of Him
who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. 
(1 Peter 2:9  NIV)

Suggested songs

8)   Jesus, You’re The Way  (based on John 14:6)    Video     Chords

Jesus, You're the way.  Jesus, You're the truth.
Jesus, You're the life.  I will follow You

There is only one way. There is only one truth.
There is only one life, Jesus !


9)   Enter Through The Narrow Gate  (Matthew 7:13-14, NIV)    Video     Chords

Enter through the narrow gate. 
For wide is the gate and broad is the road
that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 
But small is the gate and narrow the road
that leads to life, and only a few find it.


10)   If You Declare  (Romans 10:9, NIV)    Video     Chords

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.


11)   New Birth   (1 Peter 1:3, NIV)    Video     Chords

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 
In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope 
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

   Be My Disciple  (Mark 8:34b-35, NIV)    Video     Chords

Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves
and take up their cross and follow me.

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it,
but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it


13)   As For Me And My House  (from Joshua 24:15 & 24, ESV)    Video     Chords 

As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Choose this day whom you will serve.
The LORD our God, we will serve and His voice we will obey.

God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

If We Confess Our Sins   (1 John 1:9,  KJV/ESV)   Video     Chords

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


I Am The Way   (John 14:6, ESV)   Video     Chords

John chapter 14 verse 6.  Jesus said to him, 

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."


He Has Shown You   (based on Micah 6:8)   Video     Chords

He has shown you what is good
What does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
to walk humbly with your God


Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them,
I will show you what he is like:
he is like a man building a house,
who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock
And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house
and could not shake it, because it had been well built.  (Luke 6:47-48)
