Join us for Worship this Sunday at 10:15AM
Salvation is what happens to a person who has invited the Lord Jesus to forgive them of their sins and begin a personal relationship with him. The Bible says we can know that we have eternal life.
“These things have I written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that you have eternal life.” 1st John 5:13 (NKJV)
Let’s use the word LIFE to describe how a person begins their new and exciting walk with God.
The Bible says that God is love. (1st John 4:8) The Bible says that God first loved us. (1st John 4:10). He showed us this great love by giving his son Jesus to die on the cross for us. (John 3:16) The Bible teaches us that we are not saved by what we do but by what God has done for us through Jesus Christ His Son.
The reason people do not automatically go to heaven is that we are imperfect. We are sinners. (Romans 3:23) Sin is disobeying God and the Bible says that we all are guilty.
In Jesus we have forgiveness (Ephesians 1:7) Ask yourself this question. Has Jesus forgiven me? He has, if you have followed these steps. They are called the "Three R’s of Repentance".
If we follow what the Bible says, God gives us eternal life both now and one day with Him in Heaven. (John 10:28) Have you recognized Jesus as the way, repented of your sins and resolved to follow him? The Bible says, “If you will confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
Today could be your day of salvation. Would you be willing to pray?
“Heavenly Father, I believe that you love me and gave your Son to die for me. I also know I have sinned and need to be forgiven. Lord Jesus, I want to turn from my sin and my past and ask you to forgive me. Please come into my life and give to me this gift of eternal life. Thank you for forgiving me, coming into my life, and giving to me eternal life. Amen”.
We would be excited to hear that you're now a Christian. Let us help you understand the Bible and what joys lie ahead in a new life through Christ Jesus. You can reach us at the Contact page.
