NEW INFO ON OUR FALL MEETING!! See the News and Upcoming page.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: I’ve talked to many a person who tells me that in order to be saved all one has to do is believe, John 3:16, 36, etc. What a comforting thought that is. Nothing else is needed because Christ did it all for us. There is no believer who would disagree with the fact that salvation is not of ourselves, Ephesians 2:8; that it is from God, also Ephesians 2:8. There is no way I can earn my salvation, either. So, nothing else is needed. I’m glad that I do not have to repent of my sins. Or do I?

   Acts 2:38 ‘Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins”.’

Acts 3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

Some may argue that turning to God involves repentance; but if so, why did Peter feel the need to say it to a group of people who had already been pricked to the heart in chapter 2? Can I believe and turn to God but not repent? If I must repent, and some would add from Romans 10:10 confession, then is there anything else I must do? Not that I must do anything to earn my salvation, but to be obedient to the will of God. Peter said repent and be baptized. Why is this such a stumbling block for people today?

If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me.

One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18.

If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Scott Long
