Speaker (testimony): Craig Crawford
Key Scriptures: Ephesians 2: 8-10; and Philippians 3:8
Craig used his testimony to address Ephesians 2: 8-10, i.e. salvation is not based on works. It’s a free gift.
Speaker (testimony): Davide Musiello
Key Scriptures: John 3
Davide spoke on what it means to be born again. When a religious man, named Nicodemus, came to speak to Jesus, Jesus told him, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of heaven. Flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. We have been born in the physical, now we need to be born in the spirit.
Speaker: Ray Christison
Key Scriptures: Matthew 19:16-26, 6:21; Romans 3:12 & 23, 6:23; and Isaiah 64:6
There are many people, including some Christians(sadly) who believe that if they are good(in their sight) and do good deeds, these alone will merit favour with God and secure their place in heaven. Unfortunately the very converse of this is true as God states categorically that our good deeds or righteous acts are as filthy rags in His sight if we have not acknowledged our sinful nature, repented of our wickedness and received Jesus Christ not only as Saviour but also as Lord and determined in our hearts to live lives for His honour and glory.
