We want to thank you for coming out to Freedom Fest this year. We hope you were able to enjoy the free health screenings, clothing, groceries, concerts, and fireworks—that you had a great time at the event. Above all those things, however, we are so thankful for the opportunity to meet you and pray with you. Please know that we will continue to do so.
We want to strongly encourage you to get plugged into one of Janesville’s church communities. These churches are looking forward to the opportunity to come alongside you, continue uplifting you in prayer, and help you grow in Christ. If you’re looking for a church to call home, let us recommend one of these churches below:
We believe that the Word of God is living and active (Hebrews 4:12) and is useful to our lives today. If you find yourself today with questions regarding salvation, healing, and living a fully devoted life to Jesus Christ, we encourage you to check out these Scriptures. Again, we encourage you to take time to meet with a pastor from the churches above to discuss and pray through these Scriptures.
…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
… for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
1 John 1:8-9
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Healing”] Exodus 15:26
He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”
[God] forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases…
He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.”
3 John 2
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
“As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”
[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Commitment”] Luke 14:33
In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”
“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.[/su_tab][/su_tabs]
