Steps to Salvation

Hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. (Romans 10:17).   Come to Him by faith. (John 14:6)

Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from your sins and give you eternal life. (John 3:16 ).   We must believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matthew 16:16).

Repent of your sins. (Acts 17:30,31).  Admit you are a sinner and turn away from your sin. (Acts 3:19).

Confess and Pray a simple prayer to God. (Romans 10:9-10) Prayer is simply communicating with God. It does not have to be anything complicated.  Let it be sincere and real from your heart.  Something like:

"Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner.  I have done many things that donít please you.  I have lived my life for myself.   I am sorry and I repent.  I ask you to forgive me.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross for me and that he rose again, to save me and that He is Lord.  I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you.  Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you.  I love you, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you. Amen".

Donít doubt Him. Salvation is by grace, through faith. Thereís nothing you did, or ever can do, to deserve it. Itís a free gift from God. All you have to do is receive it! (Ephesians 2:8)
