Salvation,
God's Gift to All!

God offers to anyone who will...call upon the name of the Lord...be saved!

We are told by God in His word that all men must die ("It is appointed unto men once to die." Hebrews 9:27 KJV).

Then what? Those who have not accepted Christ as Savior will spend eternity in the eternal fires of hell. ("And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:15)

What is the benefit to being saved? If you are a believer you will enjoy the splendors of eternity in heaven with Christ.

"What do I do?" Here is a guide through the book of Romans that will give you the keys to being saved.

1. Acknowledge you are a sinner!
This, according to the word of God. Yes, all of mankind!
"As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one."  Romans 3:10
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23

2. Recognize there is price to be paid for your sins
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord"  Romans 6:23
Because of our sin, there is a price to be paid for justification of that sin..."death".

"So what about the gift?"

3. Accept The Gift...Jesus Christ!
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us"  Romans 5:8
The simple reality is that Christ loves you so much that he chose to offer himself to pay that debt of death. He shed his blood on the cross to make the payment for our sins. But the great news is that it did not end there! Three days after his death on the cross God raised him from the dead which gives us that eternal victory over death and hell!

4. Confess, Believe and Receive!
"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."  Romans 10:9
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."  Romans 10:13

Now the choice is yours! Only you can make this decision, no one can do it for you.
It is very simple:  - Confess: Acknowledge that you are a sinner deserving of the punishment of eternity in hell and ask God for His forgivness.  - Believe: That Christ paid your debt by shedding His blood on the cross resulting in His death and burial, that He rose again from the grave.  - Receive: Now ask Him to save you from eternity in hell!

This is something only you can do! You cannot have anyone pray this prayer for you. You must come before God with a contrite heart asking for His forgiveness of your sins. Here is a prayer you can pray...

"Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. 
I  am sorry and repentant for my sins. 
I ask for your forgiveness and save me through your shed blood; 
please come into my heart. 
I want to accept your gift of salvation, I receive you as my own personal Lord and savior.
Amen"
