The Lighthouse Quartet
This is the small web presence of the Lighthouse Quartet of Waterloo, Iowa. This group was born of a desire for good, solid gospel music and to be a blessing to Lighthouse Baptist Church. Our music isn't that good, and we aren't much of a blessing to the church. Still that is why we are here and God will use anyone, so the prayer is that this music will be a blessing to you. See the About Us page for more details.

Liner Notes for the CD, "Saved by Grace"

Many a person has lived his whole life thinking he would go to Heaven because he was a good person. But that is not what God says. The Bible says "we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;" (Isaiah 64:6) That it's "Not by works of righteousness which we have done," (Titus 3:5) "For by grace are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves." (Ephesians 2:8) You see, you may be a good person, but what about all the sin in your past? It has to be dealt with. The Bible says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) It says that "All liars shall have their part in the lake of fire which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8) And the Scripture in Romans says, "There is none righteous, no not one."(Romans 3:10)

The Bible teaches that if you pay the debt for your own sins, you must die eternally in Hell. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23) So what can you do? If you believe God and His Word, you must also believe that you (and I) are sinners, deserving of Hell. If you believe you aren't all that bad, you must throw out the Bible and call God a liar! Impossible!

But Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a perfect, sinless life, and died that horrible death on the cross. To pay for His sins? No! He died to pay for your sins, if you will let Him. The Bible says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:7-8)

So, how can we go to Heaven?


--"For there is none other name, under Heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) -- Jesus Christ.
--"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6) -- Jesus Christ.
-- "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) -- Jesus Christ.
-- "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) -- Jesus Christ

Friend, "with the heart man believeth unto righteousness." (Romans 10:10) 

So I ask you; what do you believe?

-- Do you believe that at some time in your life, you have sinned, just as the Bible says? And if you are honest with yourself, as I had to be with myself, you would find many areas and times in your life when you would have to admit you were sinful.
-- Do you believe that, as a sinner, you are doomed to spend an eternity paying your sin-debt in Hell? The Bible is clear. "The wages of sin is death," and, "It is appointed unto man once to die and after that, the judgment." Also, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned."
-- And do you believe that Jesus Christ died to pay the debt for your sins? The Bible says that, "God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) There is no doubt that through Adam and through our own sin, we have a price, a judgment, on our heads. A judgment that we can pay for ourselves in Hell, or ask Jesus Christ to pay for us.


So what will you do? Will you live answering to no God and in the end reap the eternal punishment? Or will you ask Jesus Christ to save you and put your trust in His blood, which was shed for you on the cross at Calvary? "With the mouth, confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10) If you choose Christ, you must pray to Him, confessing that you are a doomed sinner with no hope of Heaven without Him and Him alone. And you must ask Him with all of your heart to save you. And He will save you. Without a doubt.

What will your choice be? You only have two choices. Heaven or Hell. Friend, you must pray and ask Jesus Christ to forgive and save you. Just pray right now and give your heart, your life, and your eternity to Him.

So, if you prayed and asked Jesus to save you, what next?

First, you must find a good, Bible-believing, King James using, independent, fundamental Baptist Church. Once you find that Church, ask the Preacher what to do next. He should tell you to be baptized and start living for Jesus, the One who died for you. You should read your Bible, pray, and seek God's face every day.

Friend, that's my message to you. I urge you to trust in Jesus and be saved. If you are saved, I urge you to give your all for the Lord. After all, He gave His all for you.
