In God We Trust
60th Anniversary
 
July 30th is the 60th Anniversary of our nation's official Motto: "IN GOD WE TRUST." FRC is partnering with the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation to help revive appreciation and use of our motto. Visit FRC.org/IGWT to learn more. We are encouraging churches to devote Sunday, July 31, to recognize our motto and have prepared some resources to help (See below).
 
Have you considered our profound motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST?" Behind that motto is much history; much faith, love and family; much preaching, Bible study and prayer; a lot of hard work, invention and progress; and too much pain, conflict and war, blood, sweat and tears. "IN GOD WE TRUST" represents the collective faith of generations of Americans. It rightly describes the spirit of the American people from before the founding up until today.
 
Like Israel of old, God has brought America back from the brink time and time again. He has sent revival to restore the church to vitality and faithfulness and He's brought Awakening to America when we needed it most.
 
But it's time for this generation of God's people to proclaim: "IN GOD WE TRUST! If God's people do not celebrate the anniversary of our great national motto, who will? How critically important it is for believers to stand up for, hold fast to, and boldly declare their faith. The Psalmist wrote, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!" (Ps 107:2).
 
Again, we are asking pastors and parachurch leaders to join us in making Sunday, July 31st "IN GOD WE TRUST Sunday" - the Sunday immediately after the actual anniversary of those words becoming our nation's official motto (July 30, 1956). It is a perfect time for pastors to preach God's word as it pertains to our national motto. It's time for us to revive the motto, and the meaning behind the motto, and to make it real in America, beginning with God's own people!
We have put together some materials to help celebrate, "IN GOD WE TRUST!"
 
- Visit FRC.org/IGWT for Announcement Slides, coming soon.
 
Creatively use this opportunity to inspire the people you serve: to remind them of great men of faith who made America great, and point to God's intervention along the way to preserve us. As God's people take up the National Motto as a banner for our generation, may God use us to rally Americans to what is truly the source of our strength and greatness: "IN GOD WE TRUST!" And may we pass this standard to our children and grandchildren, so they can display the heritage of faith in bold colors in their generation. If they will, our nation will continue to proclaim our motto: "IN GOD WE TRUST!"
 
Thank you for praying!

You are invited to have a personal relationship with God, your Creator!

To have a personal relationship with God, you must become a follower of Jesus. There is no other way. This decision must be a personal commitment from the heart. No one else can decide for you. This is the most important decision you will make in this life.  This is the way to become a child of God and experience His love and all of His blessings today:

Know that God loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son...
(John 3:16)
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
(Romans 5:8)
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!

(I John 3:1)


    
Admit that you have sinned against God and are separated from Him.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
(Romans 3:23)
There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away... 
there is no one who does good,not even one.
(Romans 3:10-12)
But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
(Isaiah 59:2)
 For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 6:23)

    Believe, Repent, and Receive Jesus Christ as Savior.
He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household."
(Acts 16:30-31)
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out,
that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
(Acts 3:19)
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call."
(Acts 2:38-39)

But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God.
(John 1:12)

   Declare your faith and let others know you have decided to follow Jesus
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
(Romans 10:9-10)

Pray this prayer of commitment:
     Lord Jesus, I know that you love me. I admit that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.
I choose to believe that You died to forgive me, to repent of my sin, and to follow you.
Right now, I receive you as my Savior and Lord, and ask you to come into my life forever. 
Thank you for hearing my prayer and giving me eternal life today.
      Amen
 

Trusting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord
is the most important thing you will ever do.
We would like to help you learn more if you have accepted Christ as your personal Savior. 
Send us an email so that we may send you some helpful literature.
This will help you begin your new life in Christ,
Please tell us about your new faith in Jesus today!
