The Road to Salvation
About Fresh Manna
What is "Fresh Manna"?
God's Word, the Bible, is to be alive to us. It's to be powerful and stir faith within us.
It's to revive hope in our heart when we face the impossible. It's to bring home Jesus' promise, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."

IF you should die today are you 100% sure - sure beyond the shadow of a doubt that you would go to heaven? If you feel you can say yes, please read on.
IF you should die and stand before God and He asked you why He should let you into Heaven, what would you say?
If your answer is, "I am sure I would go to Heaven because I have tried to be a good person," it's the wrong answer so please read on.
Salvation, or the gift of eternal life cannot be earned. To have earned it you would have had to live your life without ever sinning - something that no man except Jesus Christ Himself has ever done. This gift of the forgiveness of our sins, the gift of eternal life called salvation is just that - a gift. It can't be earned. Like any gift, it's free and only has to be received.
The following verses help you see these glorious and eternal promises and truths.
We can know - not hope - that we have eternal life!
I John 5:13
"That these things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
No one has been able to live a sinless life
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Sin has touched every human being's life.
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"
We deserve punishment for our sins but Jesus offers us the free gift of eternal life.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
God isn't waiting for us to get cleaned up first, He'll help us with that. He accepts us while we are still sinners so, there is no sense in putting it off
"But God commendedth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Faith in Jesus Christ, and the receiving of the gift of salvation, is initiated by believing in our hearts and saying what we believe to God first, and then others.
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
If we say we haven't sinned, we have lied to ourselves. When we admit that we have, God is faithful to continually cleanse us.
1 John 1:8-10
"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives."
Jesus is waiting for you right now! Don't put it off for a second. Let Him into your life!
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."
