1. God created man in His image and in His likeness.  (Gen 1:26-27)
  2. God gave man authority to reign & govern over the earth and everything on it and in it.  (Gen 1:28-29)
  3. Man forfeited all authority to satan through wilful disobedience. (Gen 3:1-7)
  4. God decided to pay the penalty for mans’ sin.  (John 3:17)
  5. The sin of mankind could only be removed by blood.  The blood of one who was perfect and without sin.  (Ex 29; Lev 4)
  6. As all mankind was infected by the sin of the father (Adam) of the human race, then a mortal (sin-infected) man could not be pure enough to remove all sin.
  7. Jesus was made flesh and dwelt among men and being the sinless image of God, was pure enough to pay the penalty for man’s sin.  (Matt 1:18)
  8. Jesus lived an exemplary life on earth to show us how a Spirit-filled person should live.  (1 Peter 2:21-25)
  9. Jesus was crucified, buried, raised from the dead and now is alive.  Each of which relates to us.  In other words we must crucify the flesh (die to self), be buried (in baptism), and be raised in new life to live in righteousness.  (Luke 23:26 – 24:1-53; 1Peter 2:24)
  10. Jesus’ death undid the effects of mans’ sin.  His blood bought our salvation and his broken body bought our physical healing. (Isa 53:5-6)
  11. God desires all mankind to live in blessings not curses. (Eze 18:32)
  12. God will do anything you ask Him to do if you will do anything He asks you to do.
  13. The will of God is to do anything that reveals God to man and draws man to God.
  14. The Word of God (the Bible) shows us the will of God.  The Spirit of God cannot lead you to do something that the Word of God says not to do.  He cannot lead you to not do something that the Word of God tells you to do. (2 Tim 3:16)
  15. He calls His people to be witnesses, missionaries and ambassadors to the world wherever that may be, personal, work, anywhere.  If you consider yourself as anything other than one of these in the world you are a part of, you are not a Christian.  A true Christian always has as their primary reason for being, the desire to share what they have found.  If you do not desire to share, it is because you have not found something worth sharing.  If that is the case, you have not found the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  16. God has more faith in you than you do and more faith in you than you do in Him.  He treats you like you are already what He wants you to be, not what you are acting like.
  17. Your purpose on earth is to worship God and bring glory to Him.
  18. God expects you to be strong and do exploits for Him, thus bringing Him glory.
  19. God expects you to live by the fruit of the Spirit, not by the laws of the flesh or the physical.  The only limits are those you impose upon yourself.  (Galatians 5)
  20. Christians are so afraid of making a mistake that they do nothing; not realising that this is the biggest mistake they can make.  If you do something wrong, God is big enough to fix it, but if you do nothing at all, God cannot take your inactivity and turn it into activity, because God desires to reward us according to our works.  (Matthew 25:14 – 30; James 2:14 – 26)
  21. Every Christian is a minister and has a ministry.  Every Christian should be training a younger believer in the ways of God. (1 Peter 2:9)
  22. God never intended The Church to be a place.  He intended it to be a people.  He intended it to be a body of people that are consistently being changed into the image of Christ, just as Christ is the image of God.(1 Peter 2:5)
  23. Expect God to be big in you.  Dream big.  Do great things for God.  God has plenty of people that will do small things for Him; He needs people that will do great things.  Do things that lift people that help people.  Do things that bless mankind.  Do things that God would do if He were here in the flesh.  Forget what men may say about you.  They said the same and worse about Jesus.  No Prophet is appreciated until he is needed to get someone out of trouble.
  24. Get out of and away from dead religion and into a relationship with God.  How can you tell the difference? Dead religion always says: “Don’t do it, you might make God mad at you.” A Christian relationship always says: “What can I do for God to show Him how much I love and appreciate Him?”
  25. Jesus said that God’s will is that we do to others what we would want done to us.  If you were sick would you want someone to walk up to you and minister healing to you?  Then God’s will is for you to go to and find a sick person to minister to.  If you were hungry and penniless and standing on a street corner would you want someone to buy you a meal?  Then God’s will for you is that you go find a hungry street person and buy them a meal.  You can witness to them while they eat.  Tell them how God can help get them out of their situation.  This is called “The Golden Rule”.  (Matthew 7:7-12)

To become a Christian you must first:

Repent, admit your sin and turn away from it.

Ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour, a living person who you obey without question or hesitation.

Believe that He has heard you and granted your request.

Confess (say out loud) that Jesus is your Lord and God is your Father.

Then:

Tell someone you have decided that Jesus is your Lord and God is your Father.

Immediately find a church to attend faithfully.  Find a full-gospel, non-denominational, Spirit-filled Church.

Ask to be baptised in water.  This helps solidify a clean break between your old life and your new way of life.

Ask a full-gospel, Spirit-filled minister about Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Read your Bible everyday and always ask God to show you what you need to know.

Begin to do whatever He shows you.  (i.e.  Whatever you read in the Bible.)
