Our Motivation to
We love Sunnyslope because God loved us first. At one time or another, each of us at NMC has had the opportunity to put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ as the only way, the author of truth, and the only source of life. We knew we were not enough to measure up to God's standards on our own. We chose to let Jesus' sacrifice on the cross be the only way to obtain forgiveness from God for our desire to go against his ways.
We start a relationship with God through Jesus Christ when we accept his free gift of salvation from our sinful state. God gives us his Holy Spirit to teach us and convict us to grow to show his character more. As God's character shows, we want to love others; we have joy in all circumstances; we have peace with God and more often with men; we grow in patience; we show more kindness; we act out of goodness; and we are able to not act on impulse, but intentionally more often.
That love is directed through the Greatest Commandments to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength" and to "Love your neighbor as yourself"
You are our neighbor, a member of our commmunity. Out of God's love for us, we love you!
Your relationship with God
At North Mountain Church we like to say that starting a relationship with God is as easy as A, B, C.
Believe on Jesus Christ for Salvation
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
- John 3:16-17 NKJV
Confess (Tell) other people that Jesus Saved You
…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
- Romans 10:9-10 NKJV
