The Bible says there is only one way to
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
Good works cannot save you.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that
not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man
SIMPLE STEPS TO SALVATION
1- Admit you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
God;" (Romans 3:23)
"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a
liar, and his word is not in us."
(1 John 1:10)
2- Because you are a sinner you are
condemned to death (eternal separation from God).
“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but
after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)
3- Believe that Jesus Christ died for
you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Be willing to repent. Repentance is more than being sorry for your sin; it
is turning away from your sin and turning to Christ.
Jesus said: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent,
ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5)
"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."
Ask Jesus to take away your sin and invite Him
into your life to become your personal Lord and Savior.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved."
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Prayer is talking to the
Lord. He isn't impressed with fancy words. Just tell Him what is in
your heart. Below is only a sample.
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and the punishment for my sin is
eternal separation from God. I believe God is a Holy God and will not let
sin into heaven. I thank you for dying in my place and taking my
punishment for me. I know that you died for me, rose again, and now you
are preparing a home in heaven for me if I will trust and follow you. This
is a free gift and I could never do enough to earn it. I believe you are
the Son of God and have the power to forgive sin. Please forgive me now
and take away my sin. I believe your word, the Bible, and will trust
it and the Holy Spirit for guidance in my life. My first act of faith is
to believe that your word is true and that you have now made me a new
creature and taken away my sins as you promised. Thank you, Jesus. Please
help me each day to trust you and follow you. Please help me to use the
new life you have given me to show others that you forgive sin so that we
can live a good life here on earth and be eternally with you in Heaven. I
know that now that I am a Christian that the devil will still cause me
problems and life may not be easy but you promise to be with me and help
me through every problem and never allow more than I can bear. I trust you
to guide my life. Thank you for your love. In Jesus name I pray....Amen
