River View Baptist Church

A Body of Christ United Together in the Power of the Holy Spirit

Knowing God

The prerequisite toward belonging to the Body of Christ lies primarily not in membership but in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The "Bridge to Life" illustration helps us to understand man's and woman's dilemmas and God's wonderful plan to redeem us.


  • Which side are you on?
  • If you are not on God's side, is there any reason why you cannot receive Jesus Christ right now?

How to Receive Christ:

  • Admit your need ('I am a sinner') and turn from your sins (repent). (Acts 3:19)
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. (John 3:36)
  • Confess your sins (1 John 1:9)
  • Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit (receive Him as Savior and Lord). (John 1:12)
