Salvation

Do you know Christ as your personal Savior?

Have you ever received the Lord Jesus Christ into your life?
Realize that God loves you and has a plan for your life. “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

The Bible says that all men are Sinners.

Our sins have separated us from God. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

God made man in His own image.

He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong.  We choose to sin.  Our sins keep us from God.  "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags..." Isaiah 64:6a

God’s Word makes it clear that sin must be paid for.

“For the wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23
Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death, hell, and separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin-cursed state, we will die without Christ and be without God forever.

The good news is that Christ paid for our sins.

All of our sins were placed upon Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and he arose from the dead. He is now sitting on the right hand of the Father, and intercedes for his children.  “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

We must personally pray and receive Christ by faith.

Salvation is available to any person.  However, every person has the personal responsibility to accept Christ as their Savior.  Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Pray and receive Christ as your Savior.

You can pray a simple prayer such as this: Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.  You can also pray in your own words.  There are no magic words.  Simply express your need for a savior, and your belief that Jesus Christ is the only one who can save you.  The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

You can have a new life.

Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior.
