How to be Saved
The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
Good works cannot save you
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Trust Jesus Christ today! Here is what you must do:
1. Admit you are a sinner.
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23)
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned— (Romans 5:12)
"If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives." (1 John 1:10)
2. Be willing to turn from sin (repent).
Jesus said: "I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish." (Luke 13:5)
"In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent." (Acts 17:30)
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 one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8)
"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ into your life to become your personal savior.
"For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:10)
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)
What to pray:
Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed his precious blood for me and died to pay the penalty for my sin. I am willing to turn from my sinful ways. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal savior.
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—" (John 1:12)
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)
If you have received Jesus Christ as your personal savior, as a Christian you should:
1. Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better
"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)
"Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path." (Psalm 119:105)
2. Talk to God every day in prayer
"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." (Matthew 21:22)
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (Philippians 4:6)
3. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," (Matthew 28:19)
"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." (Hebrews 10:25)
