About Greg Lentz Ministries
To God be the Glory, great things He has done! The Lord has truly been good and blessed me with a wonderful family. Our home was established on April 7, 1991. The Lord then gave us two wonderful gifts, our children: Alyce, born on September 23, 1994, and Henderson, born on June 26, 1998. We are so excited about the many opportunities God has given us to serve the Lord as a family and we are eternally grateful for the ministry God has allowed us to share in.
Greg Lentz Ministries was established in March of 1997 and it is our prayer to see revival among the youth in America. We desperately need to see this generation turn back to God. Our desire is to be a blessing to the local church and community. In the future we look forward to being able to help more churches establish strong, God honoring, solid youth programs.

Statement of Faith
We believe in the Holy Scriptures, accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts. We firmly stand upon every word of the King James Bible.
We believe there is one God eternally existent in three Persons. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension into Heaven.
We believe in the existence of Satan. We believe in the imminent return of Christ for His Church and that His Second Coming from Heaven will be personal and visible.
We believe that a New Testament Church is an organized body of baptized believers, practicing two scriptural ordinances given to the local church: baptism by immersion of believers only, and the Lord’s Supper to be partaken of by obedient Christians.
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment to come, and by His indwelling presence enables Christians to live a Godly life.
We believe that all men are, by nature and choice, sinful and lost.
We believe in salvation by grace through faith, that salvation is the free gift of God received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that all believers possess the gift of eternal life.
The Bible says we can know we’re going to Heaven, but there are four things we must first believe.
1. WE ARE ALL SINNERS
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23
Most people consider themselves to be a good person, but who is the standard of goodness? In other words, to whom are you comparing yourself to see if you are good? But the Bible says the standard is Jesus Christ and compared to Him, the the best person in the world is in trouble!
2. THERE IS A PENALTY FOR YOUR SIN
The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death…” – Romans 6:23
We get our wages on payday for the work we have done. The Bible says that sin also has a payday. Some think they can get their sins paid for by being good, getting baptized or joining a church. But the Bible says, “the wages of sin is death.” So,according to the Bible, the only way you could pay for your sin would be to die and spend eternity in hell.
That is not very good news is it? So, here’s the good news…..the reason we cannot earn eternal life through good works or any other way is because it is a free gift! Notice agian, that the Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Eternal life is a gift, and a gift is always free. So, eternal life is a free gift because…..
3. CHRIST PAID YOUR PENALTY
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
The Bible says that when Jesus died on the cross, He was dying to pay the penalty for our sin.
4. PRAY AND RECEIVE CHRIST
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13
If you believe that you are a sinner and that Christ died to pay your sin debt, then by faith call upon the Lord and ask Him to be your Savior.
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, you can pray, “Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner, but I believe you died on the cross to pay for my sin. I trust you, and you alone, to forgive my sin and take me to heaven when I die.”
If you received Christ as your Savior, please contact us and let us know.
Thank you for praying for our family and the youth of America!
