Overbrook Park Church of Christ is a Bible based and believing church. We speak where the Bible speaks and silent where the Bible is silent; meaning that nothing can be added nor taken away from the true word of God.
One Lord. One Faith. One Baptism.
How to Become a Christian?
Plan of Salvation
Romans 10:17 First, you have to hear the Word of God preached. You’ll hear the word anytime you visit with us through preaching and teaching of lessons using the bible. The bible says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”
Hebrews 11:6 After you’ve heard the gospel, you have to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for us all so that we have a chance to be with God the Father in Heaven. The bible says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Acts 17:30 None of us are perfect and we’ve all made mistakes. The important thing is that you repent of your past sins. The Bible says, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”
Acts 8:36-37 After hearing, believing, and repenting, you must confess that Jesus is Lord, and that he’s the Son of God. There’s a story in the Bible of a man named Phillip who was with another man who wanted to be baptized. He said,“See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
Acts 2:38 Baptism is the last essential step for reaping all the benefits from God the Father. The Bible says that you must believe AND be baptized in order to be saved. We’re baptized for the forgiveness of our sins and what we’ve gotten wrong in our lives. The Bible, said “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
Live a Christian Life
Revelations 2:10 Lastly, you just have to live a Christian life, doing your best daily to embody the character of Christ and being faithful to God’s commandments. The bible says, "...be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
