The old school term is known to repent, but it is most commonly refered in Gallup Christian Church as CHANGE. The CHANGE symbol is a U-turn because it shows us we have to completely change the way we think in this broken world. It’s not about us.
CHANGING is central to our church’s theme verse from Mark 8:24b “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me.”
Turning from our selfish ways doesn’t just imply tweeking a few of our ‘negative’ behaviors and focusing on being a ‘good’ person. We must change our identities all together to be entire new creations in Jesus Christ. This requires forsaking our old life with it’s empty promises and broken routines and accepting new life empowered by the Holy Spirit and being adopted into God’s family.
If you would like to make a decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you may do so in our Sunday morning service. However you can also contact the Pastor anytime concerning this decision at PastorAndyGibbons@gmail.com.
