At Slater Baptist Church, we believe that the Bible calls Christians to reach out to those in need. Many times, the needs of a particular person are greater than one person, or even one church, can provide for.
We created this list to help our members know what resources are in our area to help with various needs.

A Message of Hope
God wants to have a loving relationship with us, but we have turned our back on God. The Bible calls this sin. Because of our sin, we have no peace with God. The punishment for sin is death and an eternity apart from God. The Bible calls this hell. But God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to live a sin-free life, die on the cross for our sins, and conquer death by raising back to life on the third day.
We can have salvation from sin and be adopted into God's family only through Jesus Christ. This salvation is free gift of God. However, in order to enter into a loving relationship with God, He asks that you do the following:
Admit: Admit that you have sinned against God. Romans 3:21-26 says we've all fallen short of His expectations.
Believe: Believe that Jesus is who He says He is. He is the Son of God and the Savior of the World. John 1:1-18 says that all who believe in His name will be given the right to become children of God.
Confess: Confess that Jesus is Lord. Romans 10:5-17 says if you confess that Jesus is Lord, you will be saved. This means you let God call all the shots. You trust and obey Him in all areas of your life.
To do this, you need to have a conversation with God. It's called prayer. Find a quiet spot and start talking to God. Admit, believe, and confess.
