The Gift of Salvation
How to Become a Christian
Everyone Needs Salvation
Romans 3:23 tells us, “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Isaiah 59:2 states: “Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”
Romans 6:23 warns us that “the wages of sin is death.”
Yes, everyone is in desperate need of salvation; but, we cannot be saved on our own.
This is why . . .
Salvation is Provided
Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 5:8: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Although salvation is needed and salvation is provided, salvation will do us no good unless it is received!
Salvation is Received
The Bible says in Romans 10:9-10: “that 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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” And in Romans 10:13 Paul continues to write,” For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The Bible explains that the receiving of the gospel (being saved) contains direction for receiving salvation in two areas:
1. “Repentance toward God”
2. “Faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ”
Luke writes in Acts 20:21 says: “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
In repentance, you are genuinely sorry that you have sinned against God and because of that sorrow, you desire to turn from you sin and turn toward God.
In faith, you believe that Jesus is God’s only Son, that He will forgive all your sins, and change your life to one that pleases God!
If you realize that you need salvation, tell God right now that you have sinned against Him and that you are sorry for your sin.
If you believe that God provided salvation for you through the death of His Son, tell Him now of your belief.
If you desire to receive salvation, tell Him of your desire and ask Him to forgive you of your sin.
If you told God of your desire for salvation with a sincere heart, then you have been saved. We are so glad this major event has happened in your life. Please contact us using the information on this website. We care about you and want to see you grow in your faith. Jesus loves you and so d0 we!
