Know Christ

At The Open Door, we believe it all begins with knowing Jesus Christ in a personal, life-changing way.

We encourage people to believe in Jesus Christ. Believing literally means to put your trust in Jesus, being confident He will do what He says and keep His promises. Another way of saying it is to receive Him, accepting Him as the Lord and Savior He is.

As we bow our knees and humble our hearts before Jesus, His Spirit grants us a new birth – the beginning of real life. We experience a life joined with the living God, transformed into a new creation. We begin a journey of knowing Him to be life itself, always sufficient for our every need (John 3:3; 2 Corinthians 5:17).

You can know Christ. You can experience new life. You can begin to live a life of lasting purpose, real hope, and genuine peace. Simply yield yourself to His control. Accept His promise. Believe He is who He says He is: Son of God, Savior of mankind, Lord of life. Ask Him to forgive you, make you His own, and take control of your life. Ask Him to grant you new life and a fresh start. Yield to His love, His mercy, and His grace. Open your heart and speak to Him in your own words. Call on Him to save you and give you eternal life. The Bible tells us whoever calls on the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:11-13).

Jesus said, “God loved people so much He sent His Son so they may have eternal life.” He also said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. Nobody can get to the Father except through me.” And, “This is eternal life, that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent,” (John 3:16, 14:6, 17:3).
