If your soul is burdened by sin or guilt, your life is unsatisfied or if any real lasting joy is absent, please read the ABC's of salvation.

This will lead to a relationship with God, bringing your life back into peace with Him.

It's as easy as A, B, C.

A

Acknowledge that you are a sinner, separated from a Holy God.

"As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; (Romans 3:10)

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)

"For the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23a)

 

B

Believe that there is nothing you can do to save yourself except to simply trust in Jesus Christ as your gift from God for eternal life.

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

"...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23b

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

C

Confess Jesus Christ as the Savior and Lord of your life, accepting the free offer of salvation personally.

"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:9-13)

 Prayer

If you have never made the decision to receive God's gift of forgiveness through Christ, or if you are unsure about it, you can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer.

Prayer is simply talking with God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:

"Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Forgive me of my sins. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as My Savior and Lord.

Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Amen."
