Salvation

Becoming a Christian is the most important decision you can make.
This decision does not only determine where you will spend eternity,
but it will also determine every aspect of your life.

All People Have Sinned Against God
The Bible states that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Sin is the failure of a person to live the life which God has intended.

The Price of Sin is High
The Bible says the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). The person who lives without Christ in his life will pay the awful price of an eternity separated from God. The Bible calls this place of separation hell. Hell was never meant to be the eternal home of the believer, but God could not allow rebellious people to enter into heaven. Heaven is the eternal dwelling of God’s people. It is a place where God presence will dwell in perfect harmony with His people.

God Loves Us in Spite of Our Sin
The Bible says the wages of sin is death; but God commandeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Because of the righteousness of God, there must be a penalty for sin. Jesus died as atonement for that penalty. Jesus’ death is the greatest demonstration of God’s love for mankind.

Repent, Turn Toward God, and Have Your Sins Completely Taken Away
The Bible says, repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19). Repentance means to turn from sin and follow God. If you are willing to follow God, God will restore you.

By Grace, You Will Receive His Free Gift of Eternal Life Through Faith in God
The Bible says, for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8). Grace refers to the kindness and love of God in His willingness to forgive and save. Faith means to trust to a point of commitment. You cannot just believe in God. You must be willing to give your life to God’s teaching and God’s Will.

Confess Jesus and Believe That He Was Raised From the Dead
The Bible says, 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 (Romans 10:9). Confess means to acknowledge that Jesus is Savior and Lord. To be saved, you must believe with all your heart that Jesus died on the cross for you and that He rose again with victory over sin and death.

Call Upon the Lord and Be Saved
The Bible says, for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13). God’s love is available to all who seek Him.

If you believe all of the above, pray this simple prayer with sincerity:
Lord Jesus, I ask for your forgiveness of my sins. I invite you into my heart and life. Father, please take complete control of my life and circumstances. I trust you as Savior and will follow you as Lord. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
