Letter from Our Pastor

Senior Pastor James Bergquist

Have you ever wondered what happens to those who have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Do they still go to Hell? Well all people are accountable to God whether or not they have “heard about Him. Romans 1:18-23 tells us "For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse" For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. All people “know God,” even if they have never heard the Bible. So by the way they know God is by the way God has made the world and their own consciences. Instead of debating the fate of those who have never heard, we, as Christians, should be doing our best to make sure they do hear. We are called to spread the gospel throughout the nations (Matthew 28:19-20) We know people reject the knowledge of God revealed in nature, and that must motivate us to proclaim the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Only by accepting God’s grace through the Lord Jesus Christ can people be saved from their sins and rescued from an eternity apart from God.

Thank you and may God Bless you.
