Prompted by the Spirit, Going without Hesitation

Who Are We?

Good News Church is a community church with a Ministry Center in Silver Spring Township on the outskirts of Mechanicsburg, PA. People of all ages are part of Good News Church.

We are part of “Acts 12:24 Churches” an expanding network of churches in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the USA. Acts 12:24 says simply, “…the word of God continued to increase and multiply.”

Good News Church invites you to a personal relationship with Jesus as described in the Bible. Jesus shows you the extent of God’s forgiving love. Through faith in Jesus you can enter into a life-changing relationship with God and step into your destiny in the Kingdom of God.

Everyone who follows Jesus has freedom and authority to speak the Good News of God’s love and bring the love Jesus into every relationship. In this way the word of God continues to increase and spread and the Kingdom of God expands around the world.

At Good News Church, we are intrigued to discover what Jesus is up to in your life. It is our mission to empower you and train you to make a maximum impact in this world for the Kingdom of love.

At Good News Church we invite people to a living, personal relationship with Jesus. We believe that this relationship begins when we respond in faith to the invitation of Jesus, “Come to Me.” Please see the back cover of this bulletin for a clear description of how to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus.

We encourage all believers to be baptized. This has been a practical way to make a clear, public statement of following Jesus since the beginning of the church. If you are interested in learning more about being baptized, please see a pastor.
 

Communion Offered Every Sunday Morning

We offer communion every Sunday morning for any individuals who want to partake. There is a table at the back of the auditorium where the elements of communion are available during the response song at the end of the service. A communion service for the entire congregation is offered monthly. Our Communion is alcohol and gluten free.

The “Good News” of Good News Church
Entering a Real Relationship with Jesus
 
 
  1. Reality of God’s Desire

God loves you and invites you to a lifelong, relationship with Him.

           For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

 

  1. Reality of our Problem

Being in a real relationship with God is not automatic, because we are by nature separated from God.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  (Romans 3:23)

 

  1. Reality of God’s Remedy

Jesus died on the Cross, taking the penalty for our sins and removing all barriers between a holy God and us.  Then Jesus rose from the dead, victorious over sin and death.

For Christ died for our sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.  (I Peter 3:18)

…Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. (4)… He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures… (I Corinthians 15:3b-4)

 

  1. Real Response

When you respond by faith to Jesus as God’s remedy for your spiritual needs, Jesus comes to you in a real spiritual encounter and forms a relationship connection with you.  He forgives you and makes you a member of God’s eternal family.

  Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.  (John 1:12)

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirits that we are God’s children.  (Romans 8:16)

 

You can respond to Jesus by praying.  To keep it real, we’ve used ordinary words in this model prayer:

Lord Jesus, I believe that You died on the Cross and rose again so that I can be forgiven.  I know that I am separated from You by the wrong stuff that’s in my life.  I’m sorry.  Please forgive me.  Right now I turn from the wrong stuff and give my life to You.  I ask You to come into my heart and take control of my life.
