How To Be Saved

God wants to have a relationship with you.

Both now, and for all eternity!

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." [John 14:6 NKJV]

If you want to know God and have real meaning in your life, if you are unsure of what will happen to you when you die, or are afraid you will not spend eternity in Heaven, there's good news for you!

The Bible, God's word, tells us in John 3:16 [NKJV] "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

Because God loves you so much, He made a way for you to be saved from your sins so that you could have a relationship with Him. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and take the punishment for your sins so that you could be redeemed from sin, receive new life, and spend eternity with Him.

Jesus said, "...unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." [John 3:3 NKJV].

Salvation does not come by joining a church, following a certain religion, doing good works, or by living a moral life and hoping your good deeds will outweigh your sins. The Bible says we are all sinners and there is only one way to become a child of God and to receive salvation and eternal life in heaven: You must be born again by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." [John 1:12 NKJV]

"…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.." [Romans 10:9 NKJV]

Pray this prayer now and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior:

Almighty God, I realize that I am a sinner, and that I cannot save myself. I am willing to repent and turn away from my sins, and accept the way that You have provided for me to be saved - Jesus! I believe in my heart that You, Lord Jesus, are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. I believe that You, Jesus, are the sinless Son of God who paid the penalty on the cross for my sins as You shed Your blood for me. I believe You were raised from the dead and You are alive and able to save me. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus, come into my heart and take control of my life!

If you have prayed this prayer sincerely from your heart, then the Bible says you are now a child of God! You have been born again, you have eternal life, and you have been saved from your sins (they are forgiven). God is now your Heavenly Father, and His Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, is living in you! (Romans 8:9)

It is the person of Jesus Christ that saves you, and your faith in Him, not any religious works or good deeds you may do.

God says in His word, "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." [Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV]
