How do I begin my search?
We must confess our sins, turn away from living independent of God, and accept the gift of salvation.
The gift only comes from believing in Jesus as the one who can save us from sin and its' consequences. Through his sacrifice, he brings us into fellowship with God.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." - 1 John 1:9
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God." - Ephesians 2:8
