United Church of God

The joy of a happy marriage blessed with loving, respectful children is a dream of most men and women. Traditionally, marriage has been an exclusive bond between a man and a woman. Yet in recent years this pattern has been changing. Looking at the state of marriage today leaves no doubt that the institution is under serious attack. A crisis in child rearing has developed in part because of the crisis in marriages. So what are the keys to a happy, successful marriage and family?

Who we are: This publication is provided free of charge by the United Church of God, an International Association, which has ministers and congregations throughout much of the world.

We trace our origins to the Church that Jesus founded in the early first century. We follow the same teachings, doctrines and practices established then. Our commission is to proclaim the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God to all the world as a witness and to teach all nations to observe what Christ commanded (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20).

Free of charge: Jesus Christ said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8). The United Church of God offers this and other publications free of charge as an educational service in the public interest. We invite you to request your free subscription to The Good News magazine and to enroll in our 12-lesson Bible Study Course, also free of charge.

We are grateful for the generous tithes and offerings of the members of the Church and other supporters who voluntarily contribute to support this work. We do not solicit the general public for funds. However, contributions to help us share this message of hope with others are welcomed. All funds are audited annually by an independent accounting firm.

Personal counsel available: Jesus commanded His followers to feed His sheep (John 21:15-17). To help fulfill this command, the United Church of God has congregations around the world. In these congregations believers assemble to be instructed from the Scriptures and to fellowship.

The United Church of God is committed to understanding and practicing New Testament Christianity. We desire to share God’s way of life with those who earnestly seek to follow our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Do you believe in many roads to salvation? When you think about establishing a relationship with God, what comes to mind? 

Do you know what the Bible reveals on this subject? Notice what Jesus Christ Himself has to say: "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day" (John 6:44) 

God starts this relationship process and you must choose to accept or reject His calling when offered. If you accept, you have a definite process to follow that He clearly reveals in the Bible. What is that process? 

1) After God calls you, repentance is the starting point in your relationship with Him. Without repentance, you are cut off from God. 

2) After you repent, your next step is water baptism, a primary principle of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 6:1-2). 

3) The next step on your road to eternal life is to receive God's Holy Spirit, which comes through "laying on of hands," as described in Hebrews 6:2. 

If God is calling you, will you respond? 

Inside the Bible Study aid ebook, The Road to Eternal Life, we will examine the Scriptures and look at the steps you must take to respond to God's calling. Start your journey on the only road to eternal life and be part of the awesome future God has planned for you! 


Chapters in this ebook: 
-- Introduction: The Road to Eternal Life 
-- Repentance: Your First Step 
-- Jesus and His Apostles Affirm the Need to Obey God's Commandments 
-- Grace, Works and Obedience 
-- The Crucial Role of Faith 
-- Water Baptism and Laying On of Hands 
-- Should Children Be Baptized 
-- Should We Want to Be Baptized With Fire? 
-- Forgiveness of Sin 
-- Staying the Course 
-- We're Baptized Into a Spiritual Body 

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook: 

"The Bible describes repentance as a profound realization of our sins and resulting sorrow that leads us to change our thoughts and actions (2 Corinthians 7:10)." 

"To some, the change God wants in us can appear so overwhelming that repentance and conversion to God's way of thinking seem impossible. And that's the point. Without God's help, they are impossible!" 

"Overcoming our habitual sins and selfish nature does not happen instantly. It is a lifelong process, often involving great effort." 

"The symbolic meaning of baptism, then, is profound. It represents both forgiveness of sins and newness of life in Christ." 

"No matter what our background or past mistakes, when we genuinely repent and are baptized, God promises complete forgiveness." 

"Living God's way must always remain our priority. We must continually "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness" (Matthew 6:33)."
