First Church of God
Plan of Salvation
Simple Steps to Salvation:
Admit - you have sinned and made mistakes
Believe - Jesus is the only Son of God, He paid for your sin with his death and rose again
Commit - to following Jesus and serving others
God’s deep desire is that “all should be saved”. His Son, Jesus Christ, gave His life freely and through God’s great gift of grace we can be saved from our sins.
One may ask “how is this salvation possible for me”? “What do I need to do? What steps do I need to take?” There are some simple responses to these questions that we would like to offer for you.
First step is come to a point in life realizing that we are lost in our sinful nature. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Scripture goes on to advise us in Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is death!”
Our next step is to realize and accept God’s great love for us. Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” It is through Jesus Christ that we may have eternal life!
Step 3 in this salvation plan is to ask Jesus to come into our heart, save us from our sins, and be the Lord of our life. “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13
Repentance is the next step where you make a 180 degree turn from your current sinful lifestyle to a new life in Christ. Repentance is simply being truly sorrowful for the way we have treated and denied Christ and His love, to a desire to love and serve Him for the rest of our lives.
Finally, simply “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” Acts 16:31.
Romans 10:10 goes on to tell us “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”
If this is the desire of your heart we would invite you to pray this prayer right now:
God, I know that I am a sinner, I believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for my sins,
was buried and rose from the grave.
I ask you now Lord Jesus to come into my heart, and take away my sins, and save my soul.
Change my heart and life Lord, to be what you want me to be!
Thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, your gift of salvation and everlasting life! A-men
If you prayed this prayer we invite you to take the next step and find a place of worship!
