God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in HELL. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith through God's Grace.
Admit that you are a sinner
Your heart tends to run from God and rebel against Him. The Bible calls this "sin." Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Yet God loves you and wants to save you from sin, to offer you a new life of hope. John 10:10 says, "I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full."
Accept by faith God's Gift of Salvation and accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour
To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippians jailer asked Paul and Silas: "...'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?' And they said, 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved...",
You receive this gift by faith alone. Ephesians 2:8 says, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast."
Ask for God's Forgiveness for your sins
Faith is a decision of your heart demonstrated by the actions of your life. Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." In Luke 18:13, a sinner prayed: "God be merciful to me a sinner." Just pray:
"Dear God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus died to forgive me of my sins. I now accept Your offer of eternal life. Thank You for forgiving me of all my sin. Thank you for my new life. From this day forward, I will choose to follow You."
If you prayed this prayer, share your decision with a Christian friend or pastor. If you wish to contact Pastor Chowning about your decision or if you have any questions please call (270) 789-0082 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not already attending church, find one in which you can worship and grow in your faith. Following Christ's example, ask to be baptized as a public expression of your faith. " Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord..." (2 Timothy 1:8).
