1. The Purpose of Salvation

Romans 3:23 says,
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Jesus died so that we might receive Forgiveness for our sins and Live an abundant life through and WITH Him!
The bible tells us in John 3:16 that “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.”

Jesus Was sent to die for our sins so we didn’t have to Die for our own sin. That’s how much God Loved US! He came to earth as a sinless man to take the Fall for us so we can be Cleared!
God wants to reconcile us to Him so we can be saved from Sin & Death (John 3:16), Live for Him abundantly(John 10:10) , and Make disciples of All nations(Matt 28:19.)

If you want to be saved the 1st Step is BELIEVING In The Lord Jesus (Acts 16:31).

2. Repent & Confess Jesus as Lord of your life
Repentance is to confess your sin and Turn Away from it! To do It no more.
1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Romans 10:9– 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.

Afterwards you can pray the Prayer below.


“Dear Precious Lord,
Thank you for this chance at salvation that you have given me because you love me. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I have done things that have displeased you and broke your heart. In sincerity I repent and ask that you forgive me for my sins and give me a clean and righteous heart. I believe your scriptures that say Jesus Christ came to earth to die for the sins of the world. This includes me.
With no doubt, I know and believe that Jesus Christ your only begotten son lived for my sake, suffered for my sake, died for my sake and has risen from the grave for my sake, and it is through my belief in Him that I can be saved and have eternal life.
Because I believe, I make room for you Jesus in my life and heart today, from here on out. I lay down every idol, please take your place as the only Master, Lord and Savior of my life.
I thank you Jesus for forgiving my sins, saving me and giving me new life in you. I commit to walking with you forever.
   In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Welcome to the Family!

*Please note: It is not the Prayer that makes you saved. This prayer is simply a confession of your new found faith in Jesus Christ. If you’ve truly repented and believe the Truth of Jesus Christ in your heart you are now born again! Not by simply reciting a prayer but it is by your sincere repentance and belief in Christ, His work on the cross, and His resurrection that makes you born again.

Next Steps

1. Is To begin to Let God Change you by His word and Renew your mind!
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2)

2. Begin to practice/ Live a lifestyle of service and Holiness to Jesus Christ Through the Holy Spirit.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1)
Begin to TRUST God and seek him in ALL things and ALL situations! We don’t fit God into our Plan, we submit to God, We put God FIRST, Submit to HIS Will/Plan and HE will direct our paths and plans.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He shall direct your paths. Prov 3:5-6)”
“The steps of a (Righteous)good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Psalm 37:23”
“Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Prov 16:3”

3. Find other believers that believe in Jesus Christ, The word of God, and The Whole bible to fellowship with. 
“And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:25” NLT
This is one way you are encouraged in the Word of God and can Grow more in your Faith and in the things of God!
You also Will continue to Grow by reading the bible at home and on your free time. Spending time with God Personally in addition to Christian fellowship is KEY.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)”

4. Tell others about Jesus so that they can be saved and Live for God because God loves them too.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matt 28:19”

I love you all with the love of Christ! But Jesus Christ loves you more!
