What is Salvation?
Salvation is God’s way of forgiving sin and providing a means for man to receive eternal life now and in heaven. His offer of eternal life is not just for life after death. It is also the quality of life, that is eternal and begins from the moment we confess Jesus as Lord of our lives.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
We believe that God’s grace is an expression of his love for sinners that can never be earned.
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
Steps to Salvation
1. Recognize God's Plan for me and believe it
The Bible says …
“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.”
“Jesus answered, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”
2. Realize my problem is Sin - Separation from God
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
3. Repent – It is a change of mind and Lifestyle
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.”
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chr 7:14
4. Respond to God's Remedy - The Cross
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
5. Receive Christ - Confess Jesus as Lord and Savior
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your hearth that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
Prayer of Salvation
Jesus, I know I am a sinner so I repent and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins and you rose from the dead. I will trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Give me the Holy Spirit to guide my life and do YOUR will. In Jesus Name I pray.
If you prayed this prayer in earnest, you are SAVED! Your sins have been forgiven and you are now one in the body of Christ.
