FRIENDSHIP SUNDAY MAY 7TH 2023
We are born again believers in Jesus Christ. We realize that the Bible is right and that we all break God’s law (the Ten Commandments). That realization changes life! We trust in the gospel; how Jesus Christ came into this world born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died the death on the cross that each of us deserved, was buried, and rose again. We’re thankful to publicly say that He is the best thing that has ever happened to.
We believe that the Lord is coming again soon, as promised in IThessalonians 4:13-18. If that were to happen today or a week from now, would we see you in heaven? If you were to leave this world through a car accident or some illness or any other way, would you see heaven?
Before sending this message, we prayed for anyone reading this to know that Jesus loves you and died for your sin. Because of that prayer, we trust that the Holy Spirit will speak to your heart as you read this message. Please know that each of us truly care about you.
If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, we sincerely and fervently pray you will join us on Sunday morning, May 7th at 11:00 to hear the gospel that opens the door to salvation. If you are a believer, but you are not doing as we are taught in Hebrews 10:25, we pray that you will come and be with us on this special Sunday for public worship.
We love you all and trust that the Lord will speak to you today to encourage you to listen to Him. We promise you that you will never regret doing what He says.
Sunday morning, May 7th, we at Oakdale are having “Friends Sunday”, and we hope that you will consider coming and being our friend on this special day. May 7th could be the greatest day of your life!
Your friends at Oakdale Baptist Church,
585 Old Mocksville Road, Statesville, NC
