Are You A New Believer? Welcome!

New believer!

Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.

When I was a new believer, I had a lot of questions which is a good thing. If you are just now believing in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do the same thing. There is no such thing as “Dumb” questions, just questions that have not been answered yet. My mother use to tell me that if I did not know something, I was to ask questions, that wisdom she shared with me has been a big help in my Christian life to this day. God’s word from the Bible has the answers, yet it can also be good to talk to a pastor or an established Christian.

When a person becomes a new believer, there is a danger that they see things through rose-colored glasses. Being a new believer does not mean all your problems will go away, but it does say God will always be with you from now on and through eternity! I encourage new believers to pray each day, read their Bible, fellowship with other believers, follow the teachings of Jesus, confess their sins, and witness their faith to others. ~ Bill Greguska

Acts 8:15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit.







New Believer, Now What Do I Need To Do?



Who Is Jesus? What Did He Accomplish In His 3-Year Ministry?

  • Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
  • Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
  • He Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.
  • Had no army, yet kings feared Him.
  • He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
  • He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
  • He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.


Stay Close To God As A New Believer And Always!

New believer in Jesus Christ!

As a new believer, you will see yourself grow step by step. Give God all the glory for what He has done in your life!

Do you want to be a new believer in Jesus Christ and know what to do next? Let us help shed some light on this subject. You must first understand that God created you for his pleasure and purpose with Him and for us to live for Him freely. The problem is that sin prevents us from having a relationship with God, but God made the ultimate sacrifice to bridge us back together with God.  Once you believe that Jesus rose from the grave, you ask Him to be the Lord of your life, help you with your decisions, and guide your behavior. The more you learn about Jesus from the Bible, the more you become like Him. Ask Him to be your Lord and Savoir, that you are not perfect, ad that you are ready to follow Him.


Can A New Believer Or Any Believer Lose Their Salvation?










Words To The Wise:

How to be happy?

Forgive others and yourself, and find the happiness you desire. Love God and love others.

If your intention for coming to Christ is to get a better marriage, become successful, or have better self-esteem, don’t make that the reason. Suppose we do not intend to take the Christian life seriously or plan only to make Christianity something to meet an obligation by adding church attendance on Sundays. Then continuing in the sins that have damned us to Hell, if we have no intention of serving the One who offers us eternal life, then, by all means, do not make a pretense of coming to Christ. But, if we understand that there is nowhere else we can go to have eternal life but to the Lord Jesus Christ, go to Him! We must realize that we must turn from our lying, lust, thievery, and rebellion, then go to Him by all means! If we understand that He was our substitute and sacrifice for our sins, come to Him! If we know that our life is no longer our own and that He has bought us with the price of His blood, we need to come to Him while there is still time! He will not cast us out. He will not turn away our desire to be right with Him.

As A New Believer, You Need To Know This!

If You're A New Believer... Welcome to the Family of God!

As a new believer, I could not see why anyone could doubt God’s existence and power!

What do I need to do next? I want to encourage you in your new step of faith. It is wise to find a Bible-believing church to attend and get someone to help walk with you with your growing confidence, a pastor or an older believer who can help you. I can not promise you that everything in your life will be perfect now. But I can promise you that now you have a heavenly Father.  Who loves you and wants the best for your life. He will never leave you or forsake you! You will like to learn more about Jesus and what He wants from you and your life. It is a journey that never ends until we meet Him in heaven one day.~ Bill Greguska

What Is The Difference Between Religion And Relationship With God?

We all have a conscience that God provided when He created us. God does not want us to be like robots and be programmed to love Him; instead, He gives us free will to choose good instead of evil! There is a vast difference between being religious and having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Start to take your faith more seriously and live it out each day, don’t just by playing church on Sunday! You can follow the crowd and do what feels right; you can follow the desires of your flesh. But do not say I did not warn you when your life falls apart, and you find yourself lost. My life fell apart when I was 26 years old, and I hit bottom before I realized how much I needed God.



Some Of Those Possible Concerns

First, and of primary concern — do you have “assurance” of your salvation? The Bible says to “make your calling and election sure” 2 Peter 1:10, so let’s go through a short “checklist” to make sure that you are saved:
  1.  Are you aware that God became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ 1 Timothy 3:16, and that he died for the world’s sins?
  2. Did your sin bring you to the need for Jesus Christ to be your Savior?
  3. Did you “repent” and put your faith in Jesus?
  4. Are you convinced that He suffered and died on the Cross and rose again on the third day? God acquits us from the Courtroom of Eternal Justice. Because Jesus Christ paid our fine. We are “justified” (made right with God) by His suffering and death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ was God’s seal of approval that His precious blood was sufficient to pay the penalty.
