WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
The answer can be discovered by understanding God's plan of salvation.
1. Admit you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23
2. Be willing to turn from your sin (repent)
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:" Act 17:30
3. Believe and confess that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
"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." Romans 10:9
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Savior.
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" Romans 10:10
Pray this prayer aloud and mean it with all your heart:
Father, I come to you just as I am, acknowledging that I am a sinner and have sinned against you and others. I ask you to forgive me of all of my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I believe that Jesus died for my sins on the cross. I believe that you raised him from the dead, giving me power over the enemy. Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. I don't understand everything about being a Christian, but I invite you into my life to help me learn daily how to live. Thank you, father for your gift of restoration and eternal life. In Jesus name, Amen
Salvation is one of the promises of God to all believers: to be given the gift of eternal life. The word "salvation" is also used to describe the process we go through before we can receive eternal life--to be "salvage" saved from being lost or destroyed; to be rescued.
