Salvation is NOT found in a religion, but in The Person — The Lord Jesus Christ.

 

If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will receive the gift of Salvation in Jesus Christ.

 

People are often confused about the "way to heaven".

Many have heard that attending church, being baptized, and other good works are ways to eternal life. But "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

Jesus clearly explains that He is the only way to the Father (God's presence and heaven).

If you were to die today, are you 100 percent sure that you would go to heaven?

We Have All Sinned - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23.

The word sin means we miss the mark or come short of perfection, by disobeying God. We have all chosen to disobey God at some time in our lives.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

The payment for sin is death and separation from God in hell. This is the fate of every person who has not believed on Jesus Christ as Saviour.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

God proved His love for you by giving His only Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sin. Jesus died in your place and paid the penalty for your sin.

"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." Romans 10:9

 

You must be born again:


There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3: 1-7

 

Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in The Person... The LORD JESUS CHRIST!

 

In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says: Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

John 11:25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.


John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.


Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.


Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”


Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

 

1st Corinthians 3:11, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.


Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
        
Do you admit that you are a GUILTY sinner, under the condemnation of God's LAW, deserving of Hellfire?

Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God (God in the flesh) who died upon the cross, sacrificing His precious blood to pay for your sins? Do you believe that Jesus was buried and rose again three days later?


To believe on Jesus Christ as Saviour means to have faith that He died for you, paid the price for your sin, and is the only way to heaven.

"Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner and that I deserve hell. I believe you paid the penalty for my sin, died on the cross, and rose from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life in Jesus' name. Amen.

"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

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;" Titus 1:2

 

Just as you were born physically to your parents, so you were born spiritually into the Family of God when you received Jesus! Please understand that we are not saved because we pray a prayer; but because we believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ. It is certainly appropriate to ask the Lord in prayer to forgive and save us; but it is our faith which prompts us to pray. You could just as easily believe in your heart upon the Lord to be saved, and not pray at all. Salvation is of the heart, as we read in Romans 10:10, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness...

Romans 4:5 proclaims... “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him (Jesus) that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” What a wonderful truth! Our faith is COUNTED for righteousness! There is NO self-righteousness involved in salvation. It is the gift of God. You see, we have no righteousness of our own to offer God. No amount of good can undo the bad we've done. Thus, Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. Salvation is receiving, not giving. We are sinners and Jesus is the Savior.

Trusting Jesus is meaningless without the cross. You must believe that Jesus died, was buried and rose again. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 teaches that the gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.


Study the King James Bible, pray, ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit, present your body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Take the yoke of Jesus upon you. (Matthew 11:29-30)

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Rom 12:1-2)
