I. Before Receiving Christ

A. Give one or two specific examples of your lifestyle, attitudes, church involvement, etc.

Don't brag about sin.

If you do not remember specifics about your life before Christ, remember that you can include the truth from God's word. You were a sinner, separated from God because you sin against him. (Romans 3:23-All have sinned) All kids tell a lie, take things that are not theirs (steal), disobey parents, say hurtful things to others,

mean to others. etc..

II. How You Received Christ (be very specific)

During this part you're sharing the gospel, so a person will know how to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. These are some verses you can use: John 3:16, Galatians 3:24, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 3:10, 3:19-20,

3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 7:7, 10:9-10. See FCA resource, "The Four

The following are some specific areas to cover:

Describe how you were confronted with the fact that you had broken God's Law (the Ten Commandments), and because of this you deserved judgment from God.

Explain how this made you see your desperate need for Christ.

Explain how you received Christ into your life (i.e. through repenting of your sins, asking God to forgive you and asking Jesus to be the Lord and Savior of your life). ***If you use the words

"saved" and/or "born again", be sure to explain.

III. After Receiving Christ

What changes have you noticed since receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord? Attitudes? Parents? Social life? Direction and purpose in life? Give specific examples.

Have the changes been immediate or gradual?

What problems or struggles have you had since becoming a Christian (be real)? Do you handle these problems or struggles any differently now?

What are the benefits of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Impacted sport?




It is all about Jesus

It’s all about Jesus! There’s nothing else in this world that we should focus our attention on, so that’s why we keep Jesus the main thing. Everything we do is in response to Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

At Bellfield, we believe that Jesus is God. We take Him at His word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness, new life in Him, meaning and significance.


Jesus is perfect. Let’s be honest, there’s not a single one of us who could say we’re perfect. In fact, there isn’t anyone we could think of that was, is, or will be perfect. The perfection we’re talking about isn’t a perfect appearance (Isaiah 53:2), but rather leading a sinless life

(1 Peter 2:22). Jesus walked the Earth without ever sinning. That means He walked among us as a man (Philippians 2:5-11) without ever doing something His Father, God, told him not to do. He never said anything His Father told Him not to say and He never had an impure thought (Hebrews 4:15-16). He was perfect in every way (Matthew 5:48). Jesus was God in the form of a man (Philippians 2:5-11) who did something we couldn’t do. We needed to be rescued and we needed someone to lead the way (Romans 7:24-25).


It is finished (John 19:30). That’s what Jesus said as He drew His last breath on the cross. What He meant was that His life, death, and eventual resurrection three days later, fully finished everything forever. Not once since that day has God pressed the re-do button. He hasn’t thought about wiping the board and starting over. When Jesus died, He completed (John 19:28) the work God had sent Him to do. Through Jesus, we have been made clean (Hebrews 10:10) and for those who are in Christ, sin no longer has a hold on us (Romans 6:6-7), death no longer has its sting (1 Corinthians 15:55). Jesus Christ, Son of God, fully finished forever what we could not do – pay the penalty of sin (Colossians 2:13-14).


Jesus is alive (Luke 24:6)! He died on the cross (Luke 23:33,46), but three days later He rose from the grave (Luke 24:46) conquering death in the process (Romans 6:9 & Revelation 1:18). What does that mean? It means that you and I, upon confessing our sins, repenting of those sins, and believing in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection can have a relationship with God that lasts forever (Romans 6:3). This isn’t a layaway plan. It’s something for you now that lasts forever. The Bible says that we were dead in our sins (Ephesians 2:5), but through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we have been made alive in Christ (Ephesians 2:5).

(1Isaiah 53:2; 21 Peter 2:22; 3Phillipians 2:5-11; 4Hebrews 4:15-16; 5Matthew 5:48; 6Romans 7:24-25; 7John 19:30; 8John 19:28; 9Hebrews 10:10; 10Romans 6:6-7; 111 Corinthians 15:55; 12Colossians 2:13-14; 13Luke 24:6; 14Luke 23:33,46; 15Luke 24:46; 16Romans 6:9 & Revelation 1:18; 17Romans 6:3; 18Ephesians 2:5)


There are a lot of things people believe about God, Jesus, religion, and life. If you want to know more about what we believe about God, the Bible and Jesus, go to our What We Believe page.


Jesus was a simple man. We believe church should be simple too. Interested? This is why we believe church should be simple and how we strive to make it that way.


At HIGHPoint Church we believe a great commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will grow a great church!

The Great Commandment: "Jesus said, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart...soul...and mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself.  All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments'."                                         Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)

The Great Commission:  "Jesus said, 'Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you’."                                           Matthew 28:19,20 (NIV)


We preach about Jesus . . . a lot. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t hear something that will make your life better. You’ll hear teaching on how to be a better person, a better spouse, how to manage your finances well, and how to have joy in the toughest situations.  Jesus came to let each of us know how much we matter to God and to bridge us back to God.

It is possible to have a relationship with God and Jesus is the bridge…

Jesus not only saved us from our sins, He saved us for a relationship with Him. God wants to have a personal relationship with you.  Learn more about what Jesus did and why you need what He has.

It is possible to know God and know you have a relationship with Him!

Here's how:

step 1

Separation from God

Have you ever thought about your relationship to God? Naturally we want that picture to look good. The problem is SIN separates each of us from God like a brick wall.

The Bible teaches us:
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”
Romans 3:23 (NLT) 

step 2

Climbing the Stairway to Heaven Gets Us Nowhere.

When people have problems, they often try many different ways of coping before turning to God.

"There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death."
Proverbs 16:25 (NASB)

We can try false religions, rituals, rules and regulations but they don’t make us right with God.

Sin breaks our close relationship with God.  It causes us to fear God and try to live our lives outside of His will. 

"…The trouble is that your sins have cut you off from God…"
Isaiah 59:2 (LB)

step 3

Even at the Top, We Find there is a GAP

You see, even if we could climb our way to the top of human goodness, the Bible makes it clear that our goodness isn’t enough.

“...No one is right with God, no one at all.”
Romans 3:10 (NIRV)

So doing good things will not make up for the problem of sin. The greatest problem with sin is what it costs —

“The payment for sin is death…”
Romans 6:23 (NCV)

step 4

Here is the Picture

We are all sinners, sin separates us from God and the payment for sin is death. That makes the gap from where we are and where God is impossible to cross on our own.

What is the solution?

Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me."
John 14:6 (NASB)

step 5

The Cross of Jesus Bridges the Gap

What we need is a bridge. Jesus is that bridge. The penalty for our sin was paid when Jesus died on the cross. Through Jesus our sin is paid for, forgiveness is provided, and eternal life is a gift. He rose from the dead so that we might live with Him.

Jesus said in John 5:24,  “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” John 5:24 (NLT)

step 6

Have You Walked Across that Bridge?

Here’s how:

Admit that God has not been first place in your life and ask Him to forgive your wrong doing. Make a spiritual U-turn.  The Bible calls this repentance.

I John 1:9; Acts 3:19

Believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins, offer you new life and He rose again on Easter, and is alive today.

Romans 10:9; Acts 4:12

Accept God's free gift of salvation. Don't try to earn it.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9 (NASB)

Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life and be the director ("Lord") of your life.

"To all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (NIV)

Pray a prayer like this:

I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that You died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and trust You to forgive my sin and give me eternal life as a free gift. I give my life to You.

“This is what God told us: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  Whoever has the Son has life, but whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” - 1 John 5:11-12 (NCV)
