Road Map to Freedom… Where are you?

  1. Freedom: The only true freedom exists only IN and THROUGH Jesus.
  2. Biker: Our community and our focus to reach others for Jesus.
  3. Church: The body of believers doing life together as disciples, and creating disciples in other church plants as God opens opportunities.
  4. Make Disciples: As We “Do Life Together”: Doing life together with an intentionality toward being like Jesus and teaching others to do the same by our actions and words.
      • Acts 2:42-47 [(God’s Word, Fellowship, Breaking Bread (which is loving, teaching, correcting and modeling for each other what it means to Follow Jesus) and Prayer.] For more information on Life Groups click Here.
      • Disciples are Surrendered to Christ, Sacrifice for Christ, Serve Christ, Share Christ with others.
      • Disciples make other Disciples who make other Disciples.
  5. Be Visible – Involved – Available – Friend: We will be visible, involved, available and a friend in our community, introducing others to Jesus so that they will belong, believe, and become everything God wants them to become.
      • We Belong (Gather).
      • We Believe (Grow)
      • We Become (Go)
  6. A “Battle-Ready” Brotherhood: In that we have sharpened each other with the Truth of God’s Word, we will be Strong in the Lord and His mighty power, able to stand against the devil’s schemes.
  7. Gospel: The Good News of Jesus Christ; Our pathway to restoring our relationship with God through Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection for the forgiveness of our sins.
    • God Created; Man fell (disobeyed); God rescues; Jesus redeemed & restores.
  8. Prayer & Worship: Worship: We Worship in Spirit (I’m all in) and Truth (the right view of God.) Prayer: Our always available, direct line conversation with God.
  9. Bible: Our owners – manual for life; the inspired Word of God. Let it be R.E.A.L. in your life (Read, Evaluate, Apply, Live it!)
  10. The Journey… Our growth, development and maturity in our relationship with God and our transformation into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

Ride Free…

“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36

Surrendering your life to Jesus…

1)   Realize that you’re a sinner – that you’re not perfect. This should be a “no brainer” – but just like the drunk who doesn’t think he has a drinking problem, we so often fool ourselves into believing we’re “not that bad”. The Bible says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). It also says “there is no one righteous, not one” (Romans 3:10). You know Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Mother Teresa? At some point in their lives they sinned, even if it was just one little white lie, that’s all it takes to keep you out of heaven.

2)   Repent of your sin – make a sincere and real commitment to turn 180 degrees around. You’ve got to want to leave your old, tired life behind. True repentance means not looking back, but looking ahead instead. Peter said “repent and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:38). If you’re just buying into Christ like buying fire insurance, it’s not going to work. You’ve got to stop going down the wrong road  doing things “your” way and start living the way God would have you live.  Repent means to turn… turn around and have your sins forgiven.

3)   Receive Jesus as your Lord & Savior – give control of your life to Him. The Bible says: “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). Believing in Jesus isn’t like believing in Santa Claus, we all know Jesus is a real man who existed. Even the demons believe that! The issue is whether you’re going to continue trying to fly the plane yourself through life, crashing into this, scraping that, flying through the storms in life alone instead of around them, running out of gas and eventually doing the “crash & burn” thing OR whether you’re going to let God be your pilot to guide you and keep you flying straight & level. The scriptures state that “every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord” (Philippians 2:10, 11). Everyone will end up finding out who He is sooner or later. Don’t wait till later!

To receive Him, pray to Him right now! Let Him know in your own words that you are a sinner, that you repent, that you believe he died for your sins and he rose again, and that you want to live for Him and you want Him to be Lord of your life.  He’s waiting…

Sample Prayer

“Jesus, I realize that I’m a sinner.  I’m sorry for my sins and doing things my way, please forgive me.  I want to turn from my sin and live for you from now on.  I believe you are who you say you are, that you died for me, for my sins and I believe you rose from the dead.   I want you to be the Lord of my life. Help me live my life for you from this day forward.  In your name, Jesus, I pray this prayer.  Amen.”
