Why I believe in Christ

I believe in Christ because He has made Himself known to me through His Word, the Bible, through the Holy Spirit, through the church and through what can be known about Him in what He has made (creation). As I have studied the Bible, I find the truths of Scripture resonate deeply within me as being absolutely true. When confronted with the truth that Christ died for my sins on the cross, and paid my penalty for sin (which is death) with His own life, I trusted in Him alone for that forgiveness and salvation through Him. Some time ago, He has put a call on my life to help others know about Him, about His saving grace, and His immense love for us, despite our sinful condition. Through my ministry as a pastor, and through other contacts and opportunities, I seek to help others know about Him, and to ultimately know Him personally as their Savior and Lord. I hope to use this blog as another opportunity to help shine the light of Christ to anyone interested in knowing Him better.

By His Grace Alone,
Pastor Bruce Jacobsen
