ABCs of Salvation

To know God and be ready for heaven, follow these steps:

A. Admit you are a sinner.

"There is no one righteous, not even one…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:10,23. (See Romans 5:8; 6:23)
Ask God's forgiveness.
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Romans 10:13

B. Believe in Jesus.

Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (See John 14:6)
Become a child of God by receiving Christ.
"To all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (See Revelation 3:20)

C. Confess that Jesus is your Lord.

"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 (See verse 10)

If you would like to receive Christ as your Savior, here is a simple prayer:

Dear Father, I believe that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten Son, and that He became a human being, shed His blood and died on the Cross to clean away my sin that was separating me from You. I believe that He rose from the dead, physically, to give me new life.  Lord Jesus, I invite You to come into my heart. I accept You as my Savior and Lord. I confess my sins, and ask You to wash them away. I believe that You have come and are living in me right now. Thank you Jesus!

If you have prayed this prayer, let a pastor or elder know, or call 215-357-4277. We have a helpful booklet, Now What? A Guidebook for New Christians, to aid you as you grow in your Christian faith.
