Introduction to Salvation

God loved us so much that He did not allow us to die in our sins, but instead, He sent His only begotten Son to pay the penalty for my sins. 

John 3:16

Plan of Salvation

We were all sinners


 There is a price for sin.  Romans 6:23


You have to repent and turn away from your sins. Mark 1:15


Christ paid the price for your sins. Romans 5:8


You must believe in Him. Romans 10: 9-10


Recognize that your sin separates you from God.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…the wages of sin is death.” Romans 3:23, 6:23


Realize that God loves you and believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins. 

“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son (to die as our substitute), that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.  John 3:16


Christ “suffered once for (our) sins, the righteous for the unrighteous (us), that He might bring us to God.” 

I Peter 3:18

The journey has just begun!

Once you accepted Christ as your Personal Savior, your awesome journey is just beginning.  God wants us to continue to grow!  He wants us to live this life purposefully and abundantly. 

How can I do this?

1.     Pray to God daily

2.     Daily read His word

3.     Be obedient to God

4.     Be a witness for Christ in word and deed.

5.     Trust God with everything in your life

6.     Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you.

Don’t let the enemy make you doubt that you are saved,

“It’s a heart issue”….once you accepted Christ as your Savior, His spirit dwells in our hearts and it will be your desire to please Him. Therefore, we will do what is pleasing unto Him.

 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  God forbid.  How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?   Romans 6:1-2.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us for all unrighteousness. I John 1:9

 Get involved in a Bible-Teaching Church

If you do not belong to a bible teaching church, don’t wait to get involved.  They can help you develop to be a mature Christian through bible teaching and fellowship.  In Hebrews 10:25 and Acts 2: 42-47, the word admonishes us not to forsake “the assembling of ourselves together…”  You are an important member of the body of Christ.  Allow God to grow in you and work through you by being fed the Word of God regular church attendance.
