Do You Need to Be Saved?

Yes, He does!  Romans 5:12 tells us that “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” Which means that we are all deserving of death, or separation from God for eternity, because we have all sinned.  But Romans 6:23 tells us that where the punishment for sin is death, the free gift of God is eternal life with him.  So how do you become a Christian?

1. Admit that you’re a sinner & ask God to forgive you.

“all have sinned & fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just & will forgive us our sins & cleanse us from every wrong.” 1 John 1:9

2. Believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins & that He is alive today.

“if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ & believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

3. Accept God’s free gift of salvation. Don’t try to earn it.

“For it is by grace you are saved, through faith — & this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9

4. Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life & be the Leader (“Lord”) of your life.

“to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, He gave the right to become children of God” John 1:12
