Jesus

The number one goal of Africa Bright Future Ministries is to proclaim the  good news of Jesus Christ.  We believe that it is futile to offer a piece of bread to a person today if tomorrow they die and go to hell.  We believe that the most important bread on earth is the living bread, Jesus Christ.  When we offer Jesus, people can be born anew and receive nourishment to their souls.  Afterward they will begin to live an abundant life on earth.  Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”  He also said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by Me.” John 14:6
 
Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the Savior of the world.  When Adam, the first man sinned, he brought sin and death into the world and passed it down into the lives of every human being after him.  Since that time, people have worked very hard at trying to be good enough to erase their sin.  But the Bible says we are dead in our trespasses and sins, we are enslaved to sin, so how can we free ourselves from it?  God knew that we needed a deliverer, someone who could reach down and pluck us from the chains that have us bound.  As human beings we couldn’t save ourselves, so God sent Jesus, His only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him.  He came to earth as a man and lived a perfect, sinless life.  Then He shed His precious saving blood and died in our place and took the sin of the world upon Himself as a sacrifice.  After accomplishing His Father’s will, Jesus rose from the grave and now sits at the right hand of His Father in Heaven.  He said that He is going to prepare a place for those who put their trust in Him and one day, He will return to earth to gather believers to Himself.

Prayer of Salvation:
Jesus, I confess my sin to you now.  I believe that You are the spotless, Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world when You shed Your saving blood on the cross over 2,000 years ago.  I realize that I am a sinner and that I need You to forgive me and set me free from the bondage of sin and death in my life.  Please come into my life now and cleanse me of my sin.  Help me to live the rest of my life in a way that pleases You.  I want to follow You all the days of my life and live with you forever in Heaven someday.  Please help me to find a Bible believing Christian Fellowship where I can get to know you better and learn your word.
