Spirit-led Transformation Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ
New Life in Christ!
God's Simple Plan of Salvation
God loves you and wants you to have His gift of eternal life.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16.
Our wrongdoing (sin) keeps us separated from God. Everyone has broken God’s law through their evil behavior.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23.
There is a price to be paid for our sin.
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 6:23
God became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. He lived the perfect life that we could never live and died in our place on the cross.
"But God demonstrated His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" Romans 5:8.
Jesus arose from the dead, proving He was the Savior of the world who could give those who follow Him the hope of eternal life.
"He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification" Romans 4:25.
We receive Jesus Christ into our life, by turning our back on our sin (repent) and by trusting Him alone for our salvation.
"That 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" Romans 10:9.
You can receive God’s gift of eternal life today by praying to God:
"Dear God, I know that I have sinned against you and deserve to pay for my own sin. But, I am turning my back on my sin and am asking you to forgive me. I believe that Jesus died in my place on the cross and arose from the dead, and I am asking you, Lord Jesus, to come into my life and control my life, and give me eternal life. I am trusting you alone for my eternal salvation. Thank you for forgiving me of my sin and saving me. In Jesus name, Amen.If you sincerely prayed this prayer, God has provided you with the gift of eternal life. This is the best decision you can make!
