Shining the Light on Sin and Salvation
In the current church culture, there is much emphasis placed on the benefits of Christianity … the joy, the peace, the purpose, the freedom, the grace. But too often these benefits are highlighted without a balanced understanding of the repentance of sin necessary to become a child of God. Those who come to God in their sin and stay in their sin have never truly repented (turned away) from that sin. God offers salvation only to those who come to him in repentance and faith. In this faith-defining message, Pastor Jeff Schreve shines a light on the doctrinal truth about sin and salvation.
Jeff's life has been radically changed by Jesus Christ.Growing up in a church-going home, Jeff learned a lot about God, but he did not know God. He believed in Jesus in the same way he believed in George Washington: he knew Jesus was real, but had not personally met Him. All this changed one night after a Young Life meeting when he was alone in his bedroom. There Jeff saw his need for Christ and His forgiveness and surrendered his life to Jesus.As a student at the University of Texas, Jeff grew in his Christian life. He graduated with a degree in business and moved back home to Houston, Texas to start a career in business. There he met his future wife, Debbie, at a single's group meeting at Champion Forest Baptist Church. They were married in 1986 and have been blessed with a wonderful relationship and three awesome daughters and two beautiful grandchildren. A New DirectionAfter spending 13 years as a chemical salesman, God called Dr. Schreve to preach. He left his secure position and moved his family to North Carolina to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was a scary and difficult move to make ... but it was one of the best decisions they have ever made. One year later, God called them to serve on staff at Champion Forest Baptist Church. In 2000, he completed his Master of Divinity degree graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2014 from Southeastern Seminary. Jeff Schreve has been the senior Pastor of First Baptist Texarkana in 2003, a growing and exciting church with 4500+ members.Watch more From His Heart on LightSource.com
