Faith Rescue Mission facilitates many effective programs which serve as  a source of help to many needy people. Of course, our programs will bring a great measure of assistance to those who apply themselves. However, there is another kind of help without which all of the most effective programs in the world are useless.  The only help that will have a lasting impact is that which comes from God.

Jesus said,
Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? That's why everything we do is centrally focused on Him. Ultimately, it is only God's help that can produce enduring change.
How to get it...
Everyone is fond of saying, “God helps those who help themselves.” Nothing could be further from the truth. God helps those who realize they need his help! The first step in obtaining help from God is to humbly admit that you need it.

The Bible says that all have sinned. How can we whose sin has separated us from God ever hope to approach Him? How can we be confident enough to come to God for help when we don't know if He will accept us?

The answer is in the Bible:

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. In our criminal justice system, we say that the one convicted of a crime must “pay his debt” to society. Justice demands that payment be made. In the case of our own “crimes” against God, the same is true. But God loves us to the point that He is unwilling for us to endure the unspeakable misery of eternity without Him. Instead, He sent His Son, Jesus, to take upon Himself the punishment for our sins. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus completely satisfied God's demand for justice by sacrificing Himself in our place.

But we must be willing!

It becomes a matter of faith. Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. The payment has been made. The gift has been offered. Anyone who puts his trust in Jesus as Savior receives the forgiveness of sins provided for us by His death on the cross and gains God's acceptance based, not on any merit of his own, but on the merit of the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
What now...
Ask yourself one question: If today was my last day on earth, do I have the confidence that I would be accepted by God into heaven? If not, you can gain that assurance now!

This is what you must do:

  1. Admit to yourself, and then to God that you are a sinner and guilty before Him, undeserving of His forgiveness.

  2. Trust in Jesus as the One who has purchased forgiveness for your sins with His own blood.

  3. Believe God raised his Son Jesus from the dead.

You can pray a prayer like this:

“Lord Jesus, I know I've sinned against You and deserve the punishment of eternal separation from You. I put my trust in you now as my Lord and my Savior. I believe you gave your life at Calvary for the remission of my sins, and rose from the dead on the third day. Please forgive me and wash my heart clean of my sins. Thank You for dying for me... Amen."

The Bible says, John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. And again, John  3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

If you have just received Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior, or if you have any questions about what the Bible says, we'd love to hear from you. Just send us an email  at   or call (334) 262-6024. God bless you!
