How can you be saved?
We speak all the time about being saved and living a life following the Word, but our message isn’t just for those who are already building and/or maintaining a relationship with God. We also want those who are ready to start their relationship with the Lord to know how and where to start!
To be saved we must first acknowledge our sins before God and understand that only He can save us and provide us the gift of eternal life. The Bible makes it clear that Jesus is the only true way to have access to God.
As referenced in John 14:6, Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Sin is what separates us from God.
We are all sinners, and must all seek forgiveness to enter into the gates of heaven.
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
Jesus Christ is the way.
No one can be good enough to get into heaven on their own, nor can our good works get us there. Jesus died on the cross, taking on the weight of all our sins, so that we may be saved.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit. 1 Pet. 3:18
So why did God sacrifice his only son?
He LOVES you.
God loves you so much that he made a way for you, through the shed blood of his Son so that you might be able to spend eternity with Him.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
You must confess that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior, while acknowledging that Christ must have full rule over your life. Then seek to do his will, as there is no way to righteousness but through him.
Jesus calls this experience the “new birth.” He told Nicodemus: “... Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
Are you ready to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner. I understand that my sin has separated me from you, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins, were resurrected, and are alive today and hear my prayers. I invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. I ask that you rule and reign in my heart so that your perfect will can be accomplished in my life.
In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
