One of the reasons our church exists is for the purpose of sharing the Gospel with those around us.  No matter what a person’s race may be, or what social or financial status one may deem themselves to be in, all are sinners in need of a Savior. You must accept and believe certain Biblical truths in order to be saved.  The Gospel is the only answer for the sinful soul.  
 

1. You are a Sinner

All persons have sinned and come short of the holiness and glory of God. (Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12)
 

2. Sin separates you from God

Sin forms an impassible barrier between you and God.  Sin prevents you from having fellowship with God, and as a sinner, you are headed to an eternity that the Bible calls hell. (Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23a; Revelation 20:14-15)
 

3. God loves you

Because of God’s love for all persons, He desires to restore that unbroken fellowship between mankind and Himself. (John 3:16-18; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:4-5; 1 John 4:10)
 

4. Jesus died for you

God sent His Son, Jesus, to pay your sin debt and remove the barrier between you and God, What you cannot do for yourself, Jesus Christ has done for you. Although sin creates a barrier of separation between you and God, the good news is Jesus died on the cross of Calvary for you, and shed His blood to pay the debt for your sin. He arose from the dead three days later, proving His victory over death, hell, and the grave.  By taking your punishment on Himself, Jesus made a way for you to have a relationship with God.
(Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:23)
 

5. You cannot save yourself

People often think that through their own efforts they can overcome the sin barrier between themselves and God.  That is not true. There is nothing you can do to restore the broken relationship with God. You cannot earn God’s salvation. (Acts 4:12; Romans 4:4-5; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)
 

6. Salvation comes through faith in Christ

By faith you can ask Jesus to come into your life, forgive your sins, and make you one of his children. Faith for salvation is trusting in what Jesus has done for you rather than trusting in your own efforts to restore fellowship with God. Faith is complete reliance on Christ alone to put you in a right relationship with God. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10)

  

With a heart of faith, you can receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.  Please remember that simply saying a prayer does not save you. You must believe.  If you would like to accept God’s free gift of salvation, then all you have to do is pray and ask Him. (Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-10; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:13)

 Your prayer might sound something like this:

Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I know that I deserve Hell because of it.  But I do believe that you are the Son of God and that you shed your blood and died on the cross to pay for my sin.  I do believe that you rose again in three days.  I ask you to forgive me of my sin and cleanse me.  I put my faith in you alone to save my soul.

Thank you, Jesus. Amen
