Our Mission


To carry out the great commission which the Lord commands.


Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20


Our Purpose

To call all people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. We want to be a church where:

  •          People can come as you are to hear God’s Word in a non-threatening atmosphere
  •          Every member is passionately, pursuing full devotion to Christ
  •          Members are committed to HBWT with attendance, prayer, tithes and service by using their God given gifts
  •          Members grow in Christ and are encouraged and equipped to learn, lift then lead others to Christ
  •          Authentic, selfless people individuals whom, by allowing God to use them for His purpose, their very lives demand belief in the existence and power of our Lord.
  •          It’s our desire for each member of the body to have a clear understanding of our passion for Christ and to be able to clearly communicate that passion to others.

Do You Know Jesus as Your Personal Savior?

Realize that God loves you and has a plan for your life.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 

plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

The Bible says we are all sinners, and our sin has separated us from God.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

God’s Word also says that sin must be paid for.

For the wages of sin is death. Romans 6:23

Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell: separation from God forever.  Believe that Christ paid for our sins.

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

THE GOOD NEWS

Christ paid for our sins

All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us.

The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore.


But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8


If you declare 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 profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10


We must personally pray and receive Christ by faith. The Bible says: Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13

 

Pray and Receive Jesus Christ as your Savior

Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven.

Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior.

Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus name, Amen.

If you prayed this prayer, we would love to celebrate with you so please let us know by phone 314.567.6007 or email.

 

New Life, Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior.

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Cor. 5:17
