Do you have questions about faith? Want more information about God, Jesus, and your salvation? 

There are a number of web sites and books you can visit and read to find out more about following Jesus and how you can receive eternal salvation. But the one book that matters is the bible. When you get close to God by reading His word, and you have faith in Him, you'll see and understand things you never did before—a veil will be lifted. But even if you haven't reached that point yet, keep seeking and talk to God. He loves you and wants to be close to you.

How do you receive eternal salvation? God tells us through

His Word (the bible), that all you need to do is accept the gift

that has already been given to you—Jesus. 

I would encourage all seekers to start with the gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John). The NIV study bible helps explain the verses and has categories and maps in the back. In addition, you should visit some churches and speak with the leaders. Joining a small group can offer you a safe and supportive setting where you can learn and grow in your faith.

My pastor Josh said once, if you're feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to start, then remember the Lord's commandment to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind." When you do that, the overflow of your love will spill out into the rest of your life.

Here are a list of other resources  for new and mature Christians.

"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

Romans 10: 9-10
