KNOW JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR
A Personal Journey
The Bible is the foundation for Christianity. It contains the answers to all of life’s vital questions and changes the very lens of the worldview through which we view reality. Most importantly, it teaches us how to have a true, meaningful relationship with God.
These verses illustrate the plan of salvation:
GOD LOVES YOU
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8
ALL ARE SINNERS
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23
As it is written: “none is righteous, no, not one” – Romans 3:10
GOD’S REMEDY FOR SIN
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. – John 1:12
ALL MAY BE SAVED
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. – Revelation 3:20
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:13
But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. – John 20:31
As a Christian, you can talk to God through prayer and share your heart with Him. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, He is faithfully listening for you to call on Him. To begin your new life in faith, pray this simple prayer:
“God, I confess that I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. I believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins and rose again to bring me new life. I ask to receive your forgiveness and grace and choose to follow You as my Lord and Savior. Amen.”
The church is the body of Christ, designed to bring Him glory through worship, to teach Biblical doctrine, and to equip its members for evangelism. After making your decision to receive Christ, we encourage you to prayerfully seek a healthy Christian community in your local church that will help you continue to grow in your walk.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. 2 Peter 3:18
Assurance for the believer comes directly from God’s Word. The Gospel tells us that because Christ died for us, anyone who trusts in Him may know that their sins have been forgiven, once and for all; and they shall be empowered to be children of God (John 1:11-12).
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment but has passed from death to life. – John 5:24
