Here is a site where
people can gather together in their desire to share the love of
Jesus. Inspired by a Christmas song, "Who Needs To Know?", written by Mary
sung by Jim Dunmire, this has blossomed into a ministry with a DVD
of the same song,
to encourage people to reach out to others with the love of Jesus.
As we find ourselves
in "these final days", there is no better time than now to ask
yourself, "who needs to know,
and who needs to hear" the good news of the saving grace
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. [Read

Even before you were
conceived, God knew you, and loved you by sending His Son to die for
“For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal
life.” - John 3:16
You are no accident. He
has a plan for your life, and a purpose.
“I have come that they
may have life, and have it abundantly.” - John 10:10
But why might you not be
experiencing an abundant life?
Because all of us sin, and we are separated from God, who is holy.
“For all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God.” - Romans 3:23
“For the wages of sin is death.” - Romans 6:23
The only way that we can
be united with God is through His Son Jesus Christ. He died in our
“God demonstrates His
own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8
And He rose from the
“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
…He was buried, (and)…He was raised on the third day
according to the Scriptures” - 1 Corinthians 15:3-6
He is the only way to
“I am the Way, the
Truth, and the Life;
No one comes to the Father, but through Me.” - John 14:6
However, it is not enough
to just know these things,
for even Satan knows them.
We must receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
“Yet to all who
receive Him, to those who believe in His name,
He gave the right to become children of God” - John 1:12
And we must receive Him
“For it is by grace
you have been saved, through faith - and this not from
Yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that
No one can boast.” - Ephesians 2:8-9
As a result we experience a new birth, and we receive Christ by
“Here I am! I stand at
the door and knock.
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me.” - Revelation 3:20
We need to turn to God
from our selves and trust Christ to come into our lives and have His
way in us. Just agreeing intellectually is not enough. Nor is having
an emotional experience enough. You receive Christ by faith.
So now, how can you receive Christ?
By prayer. God sees your heart and knows if you are sincere. Here is
a suggested prayer:
LORD Jesus, I need
Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins.
I open the door of my life and receive You
As my Savior and LORD.
Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life.
Take control of the throne of my life.
Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
If you have prayed this
prayer, and truly meant it, then you have just received Jesus as
your Savior and Lord! Your name has been written in the Book of
life! Now, when you die, you will be with Him and live with Him for
Now, you must share your New Life with someone!
Me before men, I will also
Acknowledge him before My Father in heaven.”
