Baptism & Membership Course

Our Baptism and Membership Course will be undergoing two phases of restructuring, with Phase 1 commencing in Oct 2020 until Apr 2021. We hope this will provide our candidates with a more enriching, well-grounded experience as they commit to journeying as Disciples of Christ and members of the BRMC family.

Salvation

How can I go to Heaven?
How can I live well on Earth?
How Can I find Christ?

We believe and confess that God loves everyone. (John 3:16)

Though tragically separated from God by sin, we can be saved through faith in Jesus Christ!
(Salvation Faith)

4 Steps to Salvation from Sin

1. We must admit that we have sinned,

“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves” (1 John 1:8)

“To Him therefore that knows to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17)

2. We must realise that we cannot save ourselves,

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

3. We must acknowledge Jesus Christ as the only Saviour,

“Jesus said unto him, I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but through me.” (John 14:6)

4. We must receive Christ by faith as our personal Saviour,

“But as many as received Him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, even to them that believe in his name.” (John 1:12)

Receiving Christ is more than giving mental assent to the truth of Christ, or merely having an emotional experience. To receive Christ means turning from sin to Christ, and relying upon Him to forgive our sins, to live in our lives, and to help us to become what we ought to be.

You can pray this prayer to receive Jesus Christ into your life!

“Dear God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With all my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
Amen.”
