Facts About Spiritual
Health We care about you, not only about your dental health, but also about your
spiritual health. Following are answers from the Bible to some common
questions people often wonder about:
How can I know that there is a God?
The Bible says that the beauty and wonder of all that has been created
is proof that God exists (Psalm 19:1, Romans 1:20). In fact, our very
lives depend upon God, who created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27).
Is there life after death?
The Bible says that each person God created has a soul that will never
die. After our death on earth, each person will either spend eternity
with God in heaven, or apart from Him in hell (Matthew 10:28, Hebrews
Why doesn't God just accept everyone into
There is one very big difference between us and God: we are each
sinners, while God is perfectly holy. Because we have sinned against
God, no one could ever be worthy of spending eternity in the presence of
a totally sinless God (Romans 3:23, 6:23; Hebrews 1:13).
If this is true, then how could it be
possible for anyone to end up in heaven?
Because God knows our sinfulness and our inability to earn our way to
heaven, He has provided a way by which we can be saved. The way of
salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:21, John
Why is faith in Jesus Christ necessary?
Jesus did what we cannot do, He kept the law of God perfectly. When He
willingly died on a cross, He was suffering the punishment that we
deserve. His death and resurrection brought about the forgiveness of
those that belong to Him through faith (Romans 5:8. Colossians 2:13,14).

What does it mean to belong to Christ
True faith in Christ is not just believing in Him for something
temporary, such as safety when we travel or help in a crisis. It is also
not just agreeing in our minds to the facts concerning His death and
resurrection. Just as knowing how to brush our teeth does not really
help us unless we actually brush, merely knowing about Christ does not
help us unless we act upon that knowledge through faith (Matthew 7:21,
James 2:26). True saving faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for our
salvation (Acts 4:12)
How can I become a Christian?
Pray to God and admit to Him that you are a sinner and that there is
nothing you can do to earn eternal life for yourself. Commit your life
to following Christ and receive the forgiveness for your sins that can
set you free to serve and love Him. If you truly seek God with all your
heart, you will find Him, and He will give you a joy and a peace that
the world cannot take away (Jeremiah 29:13; Philippians 4:7; John 1:12;
8:31,32,36; Romans 10:9).
