There is one true, Holy God, eternally existing in three equal persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has demonstrated His power, wisdom, and goodness by creating the world and everything in it.
The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, revealing the will of God. These writings are the unique and final authority on all matters of faith and how it is lived out. The Bible is the sole basis of our belief system.
Man was created good and upright in the image of God. By voluntary transgressions, man fell into sin, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus Christ, eternally with the Father, took upon Himself the form of man, and being born of the virgin, lived a sinless life. He voluntarily gave His life on the cross as the supreme sacrifice for our sins, bringing salvation to all who trust in Him alone. After His physical death, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven as the only intercessor between God and humans. He promises to personally return to earth to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
The central purpose of God's revelation in Scripture is to call people into fellowship with Him. The salvation of humanity is completely a work of God's free grace. Through Christ's death and resurrection, God provided salvation for the spirit, healing for the soul and body, and forgiveness of sins.
The Holy Spirit leads believers to live a life of Christ-like character and bear fruit for the Father's glory. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to apply the Bible to their own lives and to do great things for Him. The gifts of the Spirit that were evident in the early church are available, through faith, for us today.
HEAVEN & HELL
In this life, we have a choice to accept Christ or reject him. After death, this decision is eternally sealed and those who have accepted Christ will be received into eternal communion with God in heaven. Those who have rejected Him will suffer eternal separation from God in hell.
All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are united with Him as members of His body, the one true church. Scripture commands believers to gather for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of the Word; to observe Baptism and Communion as established by Jesus Christ; to offer service to the body through development and use of talents, gifts, and outreach to the world. The local expression of the church is wherever God's people meet regularly in obedience to this command. Church members are to work together in love and unity for the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Hello, my name is Adrian Savaren. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and the associate pastor of The Living Room Church. I've been a pastor here for about 14 years and prior to coming on board, my husband and I were in volunteer youth ministry for over 20 years. We have been in the church environment for quite a while, but we aren't an "old folks" church, our "Living Room" is for the young and old when our doors are open. We want to get to know you, and to share the love of God. I want to inspire people to say "because of you sharing the love of Jesus, I didn't give up!"❤️ As far as our church setting goes....If you would open the front door at The Living Room Church, I believe you could expect to feel the warmth flowing out. So, I invite you to come join me for a cup of coffee. You'll feel right at home. Blessings, Pastor Adrian.
The Roman Road
The Roman Road is a collection of verses in Paul’s Epistle to the Romans that offers a clear and structured path to Jesus Christ. Although many people believe they will go to heaven because they have lived a good life, done charity work, been baptized as a child, attended church, or treated others fairly, the Bible declares that none of us can live up to God’s standards of righteousness. Therefore, we need a road to God that doesn’t rely on anything we do, but rather, relies on the gift of His grace alone.
The Roman Road: Follow this Map
The Roman Road provides a detailed map for our salvation and eternal fellowship with God. Just follow these steps:
1. We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, accepting our humble position in God's created order and purpose. Romans 1:20-21
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened."
2. We must realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. None of us are worthy under God’s standards. Romans 3:23
“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”
3. God gave us the way to be forgiven of our sins. He showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8
“But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
4. If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we repent of our sins, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will have eternal life. Romans 6:23
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
5. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you are saved. Romans 10:9-10
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
6. There are no other religious formulas or rituals. Just call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved! Romans 10:13
“For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
7. Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today. Romans 11:36
"For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen."
The Roman Road: Are You Ready? The Roman Road shows you the path – are you ready to accept God’s gift of Salvation now? If so, believe in what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross, repent of your sins, and commit the rest of your life to Him. This is not a ritual, just a prayerful guideline for your sincere step of faith:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38)
If you decided to receive Jesus today, welcome to God's family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.
