Who Is Shepherd’s Grace?
Let Us Introduce Ourselves
Shepherd’s Grace Baptist Church is an independent, King James Bible believing, Baptist church, preaching and teaching the word of God in the Sandpoint, Idaho community. We believe in the importance of rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). Our focus is to point people to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation and for His direction in their own personal lives. We are traditional in our worship, music and preaching.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. – Jeremiah 6:16
God’s Simple Plan of Salvation
Did you know that there is a penalty for sin?
That’s right, just as man demands punishment for crime, God demands a punishment for sin.
“For the wages of sin is death.” – Romans 6:23
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” – Revelation 20:14,15
Jesus Paid The Price
But God, in his mercy and through his grace, gave his son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to pay the penalty for us. He now offers Salvation from hell as a free gift, without any works on our part, to anyone who will accept it. In order to accept this gift, you must:
Admit That You Are A Sinner
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” – Romans 5:12
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” – Romans 3:10
Believe Jesus Christ Died For Your Sin
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;” – I Timothy 1:15
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” – I Corinthians 15:3,4
Receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour
“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” – John 1:12
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Right now, if you’ve never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, and you would like to, simply go to God in prayer.
Example Of A Salvation Prayer
If you’re not sure how to pray, you might pray something like this:
“Dear God, I know that I am guilty of being a sinner. I believe that Jesus Christ was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe that his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive him as my Saviour. Thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation, and everlasting life, because of your grace. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
These are not some magical words that you repeat to get to heaven, they’re just an example of what you might pray to God if you honestly believe it and want to be saved.
If you have received Christ as a result of this message, please feel free to contact us to let us know, and we’ll be glad to pray for you and answer any questions you might have.
About Our Pastor
Pastor Eric Klerck
Pastor Eric received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour on October 4, 1983, at the age of 13 while attending a revival meeting in Pretoria, South Africa. As a servant of Christ, he has an unquenchable love for souls and a desire to see people get saved and grow closer to God. He lost his sight in 2006, however, that has not stopped him from pursuing what God has called him to do.
“Going blind was very difficult, but it is the best thing that ever happened to me, it redirected my focus and brought me closer to the One who died for me.”
He completed his Bachelor of Divinity Degree from The Bible Doctrine Institute, and was their first blind student. Eric is proof that God can use anyone in the ministry, regardless of their personal disability or circumstances, if they have a servant’s heart that allows God to work in them and through them.
