Welcome Dear Onesto my Christian web page. I hope you find something of interest on all my pages, but most expecially on this one. My primary goal with this page is to share the love of Jesus Christ and also provide a link to information on important doctrines that every believer should be aware of. I am not a preacher. All believers in Christ are called to be witnesses of their faith. My genealogy web pages are visited by hundred's of wonderful people like you every month, so, it is my duty and priviledge to be able to give testimony to as many of those visitors as possible.
If you are a Bible believing Christian already, then these words will cause no offense. Perhaps we will disagree on certain doctrines, or perhaps not. There are many splits among believers over minor doctrines. We shouldn't let those seperate us. However, there are also some splits over major doctrines, and those are a definate problem, for there are many today who like to call themselves "Christian" though they are not (based on the Holy Scripture, not my opinion, He is the only One that can condemn). Our personal experiences have been that many of these "Christians" are even 'ordained' ministers. One must be very careful about trusting people with their interpretations of God's Word. Fortunately, earthly titles and 'works' mean absolutely nothing in the kingdom of Christ. Attending Church, tithing, water baptisms ... these do not save us. These are empty works. Only the shed blood of our blessed Lord Jesus Christ can save us eternally. He shed this blood for our sins on the cross at calvary. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." This is Saved By Grace, pure and perfect. Since there is no money or power in preaching this grace message, you'll probably not hear this Good News in any of today's earthly churches.
If you do not yet believe in Christ, or are just curious as to what a true believer believes, or perhaps who Christ is, then please click on the Berean Bible Society icon below or click on this link to visit with them. Don't worry, you won't lose your place here. The link will open in a New Window. We have dealt with the Berean Bible Society for years and can personally vouch for them. They are decent folk and much better at explaining salvation by grace than me. Berean Bible Society won't ask for money or hound you! I shy away from that type also. If you have any negative feelings because of some who call themselves Christians, let me quote a bit of Scripture showing what attributes all true believers should exhibit. If your experience with a person calling himself "Christian" was different, they were probably not true believers and were just "wolves in sheep's clothing." A true believer shows several fruits (attributes) of the Spirit: "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control" Galations 5:22-23. All true believers in Christ should strive to have these attributes ... though, no one is perfect, not even those of us who profess belief in our Lord. Anyone who preaches or practices hate and/or violence is not behaving as a Christian. And, for the record, "hate" does not mean speaking out against sin or speaking the truth about evil actions, for that is not hate. It can lead to hateful actions. Just remember, speech never hurt any free thinking society. The motto of "Hate the sin, love the sinner" or even "Actions speak louder than words" are quite applicable here.
I pray that after reading the articles about "rightly dividing the Word of truth" and how we are saved by Grace at the Berean Bible Society, you will decide wholeheartedly to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. It is only His innocent shed blood that covers our sins and saves us eternally ... nothing else. You must choose before it is too late my friend! The time is now because that all we have is 'now'. Yesterday is a memory and Tomorrow doesn't exist yet. For some people Tomorrow may never get here. Death is always stalking our mortal being. Most of us never know when we'll die. I know personally that the older I get, the more precious and delicate our lives are. Please accept Him now and live with us in Heaven forever. Remember, you are loved and wanted. Nobody will be turned away who wants to believe.
Personally, all I know is that since I have come to learn the following truths:
In closing, I would like to add: May God truly bless you with an open heart. I pray that you find salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ soon. For those of you who already believe, "May we meet with the Lord in the air ..." I Thess. 4:17 (speaking of The Rapture of the Saints). God bless y'all! And thanks for taking time to read this.

anyone would come after me, he
must deny himself and take up his

whoever wants to save his life
will lose it, but whoever loses
his life for me will save it.”
