Pastor Thomas Shavers
Pastor Tom Shavers was saved in Manchester, TN at the age of nineteen. Shortly after salvation, he was called to duty in Saudi Arabia as a member of the United States Marine Corps, which provided an excellent opportunity for the Lord to prepare him for the days ahead. Much time was devoted to studying the Scriptures and the Lord began to deal with his heart about full-time service. Upon arrival in the states, he surrendered his life for the work of God and began serving the Lord in the youth department of his local church. The call to pastor came in January 1996, consequently God led him to Southeastern Fundamental Baptist College in Madison, AL. In 2001, he took the pastorate of Brigman Hill Baptist Church in Corinth, MS. In November 2003, he became the Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church, Riverview, FL and truly God has blessed.
ALL HAVE SINNED
We are all sinners but God is perfect:
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
Our sins have separated us from God but HE has a plan:
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We can not get to heaven by being good or doing good deeds:
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
JESUS CHRIST PAID OUR DEBT OF SIN
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
> WE MUST BELIEVE
Jesus, God’s only son, died on the cross to take the punishment for our sin; and after three days rose from the grave and is now at the right hand of God.
John 3:16 For God so love the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
WHAT MUST YOU DO TO BE SAVED?
BELIEVE that you are a sinner and that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for your sin.
ASK JESUS to save you. When you believe on Jesus as your Savior, He forgives and you are on your way to Heaven.
