Our response

The exhibition panel on this topic has a centre column headed – “The Way of Salvation”,

The way to salvation is the Christian's response to God's love for us, and His promises to save us from a life of sin and death.

Our response to God centres on developing a personal relationship with Him through His Son our Lord Jesus Christ by accepting the essential steps made clear In God’s word. 

These steps are in our belief our repentance in baptism, and in living our life dedicated to God.

We believe that because God loves us, He created the world and designed everything in it for the benefit of man.

That He created the world out of love and planned to have a loving relationship with us in a world of happiness, harmony and love.

That man spoiled Gods plan through disobeying His simple rule resulting in a history of trouble, strife, sin and death.

That God is acting out a reviewed plan to bring us back to Him and His plan is contained in the Bible for us to read and obey.

To participate in Gods new plan all we have to do is to repent by saying sorry.  It is that simple.  If we say sorry to God and try to lead our lives and try to do His will, He promises to abolish death and grant us everlasting life in a world of plenty full of love and peace.

The major part in Gods revised plan for us was to send His Son our Lord Jesus to live a sinless life amongst us and shed His blood on the cross to atone for all of humankind's sins.  To demonstrate our faith in God, His son Jesus commanded that we be baptised, just as He was, and so be included in the New Covenant, or God's promises through Jesus.

The two outside columns of the panel, give a little more detail of Baptism and another command Jesus gave at the last supper He ate before dying for us.  He commanded us to take bread and wine as a simple token of remembrance of His life and the torturous death that He suffered on the cross to fulfil Gods plan for our restoration. These symbols portray key tenents of the Christian belief. 

God's promise is open to all. To find out how you too can be included and have a personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus please continue to Sections 5 & 6 of these exhibition-related web pages, or come to the exhibition and speak with one of the Stewards over a cup of coffee.
