Here at Camp Haluwasa it's our mission that every camper and every parent learns about God's perfect love for each one of us and his free plan of salvation.

You're not here by accident. Jesus loves you, and He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. There is just one thing that separates you from God. That one thing is sin.

How do I Accept Gods Free Gift?

People tend to divide themselves into groups - good people and bad people. But God says that every person that has ever lived is a sinner, and any sin separates us from God. That includes you and me.

 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23


 According to man's rules, people should be punished or rewarded according to how good they are, and it might be hard for you to understand how Jesus could love you when other people don't seem to. But I have great news for you! Jesus DOES love you! More than you can ever imagine! And there's nothing you can do to make him stop! 


Are you thinking that you should make things right in your life before you come to Jesus? Many people feel that way, but that's not what God says! 

"God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8


For you to come to God you have to get rid of your sin problem. But God says that you can't make yourself right with God by being a better person. God wants to save you JUST BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU! 

"He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy." Titus 3:5


It's God's grace that allows you to come to Him - not your efforts to "clean up your life" or work your way to Heaven. You can't earn it. It's a free gift. 

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9


For you to come to God, your sin must be paid for. God's gift to you is His son, Jesus, who paid the debt for you. 

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 


Jesus paid the price for your sin of death by giving His life on Calvary's cross. By death, the Bible means eternal death in Hell where all who have sinned will pay the penalty of their sin forever (Revelation 20:14-15).

But by the grace of God, He brought Jesus back from the dead and paved the way for you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. 

All that's left for you to do is to accept the gift that Jesus is holding out for you right now. 

"If you confess 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 confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10


God says that if you believe in His son, Jesus, you can live forever with Him in glory. 

"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


Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? If it is your sincere desire to ask Jesus to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior, then talk to God from your heart:


Here's a Suggested Prayer: 

"Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I do not deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in Heaven for me. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation and I accept your free gift of eternal life. - Amen" 


...Now you are saved from your sins and know that you are now a child of God! Amen!!


If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually. 

We're here to help you understand the love that Jesus is offering you for free, no matter who or where you are. After praying this prayer we encourage you to attend a local church that can help you grow in your amazing new relationship with God. We have wonderful relationships with many South Jersey Churches and can help point you in the right direction so you can make new Christian friends and surround yourself with others who love the Lord and want to share the Good News everyday.

If you have prayed this prayer and have accepted God into your heart today, please email and let us know. We don't want anything. Camp Haluwasa loves to hear the amazing stories of how God works in their lives. If you are reading this, then God is at work in your life right now! Turn to Him and let God direct your life today.
