God’s Plan of Salvation
*We believe that everyone has sinned and is in need of forgiveness:
“All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
*This forgiveness is only through Christ Jesus:
”In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.” Eph. 1:7
*God’s forgiveness is available for all:
“God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
*While His forgiveness is available, is it not automatic:
“Not everyone who says to me “Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 7:21
*The Bible teaches that it is impossible for you to get to heaven on your own.
“By grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift-not from works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
IF THIS TRUE HOW CAN A SINFUL PERSON HAVE ETERNAL LIFE AND ENTER HEAVEN?
*We must be willing to turn our lives in a new direction; in this instance turn means to repent.We must turn away from our sins and ourselves.
“Unless you repent you will all perish as well.” Luke 13:3
*Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
***And here is the greatest news of all!
“If you confess with our mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.” Romans 10:9-10
*If you repent of your sins now and confess Christ you will one day be bound for heaven where you will live with God forever:
“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.” John 14:3
*Your eternal life with Jesus begins now:
“I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10
*You can have this gift of eternal life if you ask for God’s forgiveness now and by trusting in Jesus as your Savior and Lord.
