How do I get Saved?
This is the most important question in human existence. The answer is clearly given in scripture. To be saved you must first realize your true state of sinfulness before God and know that He alone can save you, cleanse you, and give you eternal life. Scripture tells us that Jesus is the only way and we can not come before God through any other means. John 14:6, Jesus plainly stated…
God wants to Give YOU Eternal Life!
God loves you so much that he made a way for you, through the shed blood of his Son Jesus so that you could spend eternity with Him.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have Everlasting Life” ( Jn. 3:16 ).
We are Sinners, and Sin Separates Us from God!
You may think you are a good person but being good is not enough! Every man has sinned and there is none that is righteous before God!
“For there is not a just man upon Earth, that doeth good and sinneth not” ( Eccl. 7:20 ).
“For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).
Jesus Christ is the Only Remedy for Sin!
Jesus Christ is the only remedy for sin. We can not be good enough to get into heaven, nor can our good works get us there.
There was no other way for God to cleans us of sin except by Jesus’ acceptable sacrifice at Calvary. The shedding of Christ’s blood meant that the penalty for sin had been paid in full; Jesus’ perfect sinless life had been sacrificed for the lives of all who would repent and trust on Him.
“. . .Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins” ( Hebrews 9:22 )
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God…” ( I Pet. 3:18 ).
“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 ).
You Must Accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior
To be saved, a man must confess with his mouth that Jesus is Lord, while acknowledging in his heart that Christ must have full rule over his life. This confession of Christ as Lord assumes that it is Christ who will work and fulfill His own righteousness within man, since man is unable to attain righteousness of his own accord.
Jesus calls this experience the “new birth.” He told Nicodemus: “. . . Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God” ( Jn. 3:3 ).
We invite you now to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour. “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” ( Jn. 1:12 ).
Pray this Prayer Sincerely
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and have broken your laws and commandments. My sin has separated me from you. Please forgive me of all my unrighteousness and wash me clean in the blood of Jesus. I accept the fact that your Son Jesus Christ died for me, was resurrected, and is alive today and hears my prayers. I now open my heart’s door and invite Jesus in to become my Lord and my Saviour. I give Him control and ask that He would rule and reign in my heart so that His perfect will would be accomplished in my life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer in all sincerity, you are now saved and a Child of God. However there are a few things that you should do to follow up on your commitment.
- Get baptized ( full immersion) in water as commanded by Christ
- Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.
- Spend time with God each day through prayer and Bible reading
- Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus
