Plan of Salvation
The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven, Jesus said: 
"I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father except through me."
(John 14:6)

Trust Jesus Christ today!  Here is what you must do:

steps to peace with god

Step One

Admit you are a sinner.  ~ "For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God" ~ Romans 3:23

Step 1The Bible says...

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more
abundantly." John 10:10


Why don't most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned
for us to have?
 

 


 

 
Step Two

The Problem: Our Separation

The Solution:  Be willing to turn from sin (repent)
"I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."

Step 2
God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice.


We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.


The Bible says...

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23


Our Attempts to Reach God

People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God...


The Bible says...

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear." Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God...except one.  

 




Step Three
God's Bridge: The Cross

Our response:  Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and arose from the dead, "that if you confess with you mouth the Lord  Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  (Romans 10:9)

 

Step 3
Jesus Christ died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.


The Bible says...

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ." 1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8


God has provided the only way. Each person must make a choice.  

 




Step Four
Our Response: Receive Christ

 Step 4
We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.


The Bible says...

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

"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

"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

Where are you?

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

1.Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2.Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3.Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
4.Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior.)


How to Pray:

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.
I believe that You died for my sins.
I want to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior.

In Jesus' name. Amen.



God's Assurance: His Word

If you prayed this prayer,


The Bible says...

"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13

Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ to come into your life? Where is He right now? What has He given 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


Receiving Christ, we are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. This is called regeneration, or the "new birth."

This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should:


1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
2. Talk to God in prayer every day.
3. Tell others about Christ.
4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
5. As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
