Salvation

God's Simple Plan of Salvation

If you died today do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven?  Many people are decieved into thinking that no one can KNOW for SURE that they are saved or going to Heaven. However, God's Word tells us that YOU can KNOW FOR SURE. God says:

1 John 5:11 "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. verse 12 He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. verse 13 These things have I written unto you that beleive on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

The purpose of this page is to tell you about the Lord Jesus Christ that you may receive Him as your Lord and Savior and be saved. The Bible says:

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36

The Bible clearly says there are only two types of people on earth: Those who are saved, Born-again, and those who are unsaved, lost. Those who are saved will liver forever in Heaven while those who are lost will spend eternity in Hell.

In order to be saved you must receive the Lord Jesus as your personal savior:

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" John 1:12

The Lord Jesus is the only way to be saved...there is no other way!

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

The simple fact is that a man must be born-again if he is see or enter into the Kingdom of Heaven as Jesus commanded.

 John 3:3 "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  

Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

There must be a spiritual birth!  We all have a phyiscal birth and thus a birth certificate. A man must have a time and a place of a spiritual birth.

I was born again on Sunday, February 17th, 1974 at Magnolia Street Baptist Church by realising that I was a sinner and that Jesus Christ loved me so much he suffered and died for my sins and that of the world. I bowed my knee and accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour.  Trusting only Him.

"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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:9-11

That is God's simple plan of salvation. Admit to God that you are a sinner in need of a savior. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross-dying in our place, shedding his sinless blood to pay for our sins and then rising from the dead-is the only way you will be saved. If you truly want to be saved and have an eternal home in heaven then say the following prayer and mean it with all your heart. Don't worry as God sees you right now and can hear every word you speak!

Sinners prayer:

"Oh God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I cannot save myself. Thank you that Jesus died for sinners. And right now, I transfer all of my trust to Him. As best as I know how, I come and I believe that He is the Son of God, and I believe that He is able to cleanse me and accept me, and I trust Him for that. Thank you that He was raised from the dead to prove that He has won the victory over death. Thank you that He has the keys of death and of Hades. I look to Him now as my own Savior, in Jesus' name. Amen."

If you have prayed that prayer and God sees your heart, He will have received you, accepted you and declared you righteous on Christ's behalf so that you can spend eternity with Him.
