That 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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10
Are you ready to turn your life over to Jesus Christ? It is the greatest thing that you will ever do!
The following is a simple step-by-step plan of how to accept Christ as your Lord and Savior.
God Loves You!
"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." John 3:16
God has a wonderful plan for your life!
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10:10
1. Because of our sin, we are separated from God.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
2. The Penalty for our sin is death.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
3. The penalty for our sin was paid by Jesus Christ!
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
4. If we repent of our sin, then confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from our sins!
"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
"... 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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9,10
If you do not know Jesus as your Savior & Lord, and have called out to Him; simply pray the following prayer in faith and Jesus will be your Lord and Savior!
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call on the name Of the Lord shall be saved" and "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" (Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9).
You said my salvation would be the result of Your Holy Spirit giving me new birth by coming to live in me (John 3:5-6, 15-16; Romans 8:9-11) and that if I would ask, You would fill me with Your Spirit (Luke 11:13; Acts 2:4) I take You at Your Word.
I confess that Jesus is Lord. And I believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. I ask you to forgive me of my sins.
Thank You for coming into my heart, for giving me Your Holy Spirit as You have promised, and for being Lord over my Life. Amen
Now that you are a "new creation" in Jesus Christ, the road ahead will be full of life changing experiences.
Growing in knowledge and understanding of the Bible and your Christian walk with God is essential for your spiritual growth. Here are some ways that you can grow as a Christian.
1. Be baptized.
Baptism identifies you with Christ
2. Study the Bible.
The Bible will guide you through life and answer life's questions.
"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105
"Be diligent to present yourself to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15.
3. Share your faith with others.
"Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord." 2 Timothy 1:8
"Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:32
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witness to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8
4. Be part of a local church.
Fellowship with other Christians.
"And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works; not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24,25
God desires to meet your needs! Make prayer a part of your daily life. Luke 11:2-4
The Angels in Heaven are Rejoicing for You…
And so are we!
Because Your name is now written in the Lambs book of Life.
