IT'S IMPORT FOR YOU TO KNOW THAT CHURCH MEMBERSHIP DOES NOT SAVE YOU. HOWEVER, GOD DOES HAVE A PLAN FOR YOUR SALVATION
1. GOD’S PLAN—EVERLASTING LIFE
God loves you and wants you to have everlasting life. The BIBLE says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
2. THE PROBLEM—SEPARATION
We are by nature sinners and sin separates us from God. The BIBLE says: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
3. GOD’S REMEDY—THE CROSS
God’s love bridges the gap of separation between God and you. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave, He paid the penalty for your sins. The BIBLE says: “He personally carried the load of our sins in his own body when he died on the cross” (1 Peter 2:24).
4. OUR RESPONSE—RECEIVE CHRIST
You cross the bridge into God’s family when you receive Christ by personal invitation.
The BIBLE says: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).
To receive Christ and become a Christian you need to do four things:
1. ADMIT your spiritual need. “I am a sinner.”
2. REPENT and be willing to turn from your sin.
3. BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross.
4. RECEIVE, through prayer, Jesus Christ into your heart and life.
CHRIST says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in” (Revelation 3:20). The BIBLE says: “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Dear Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins. I believe that You died for my sins on the Cross and rose on the third day. I now invite You to come into my heart. I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Congratulations! If you said that prayer you are saving and a Christian.
Next, it is important for you to join a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church to learn to enjoy the benefits of being a Christian. We recommend Transfiguration Baptist Church. However, there are many other churches that could serve this purpose.
We suggest that you pray on it and make a decision soon!
