Salvation Through Jesus Christ
Has the Lord been tugging at your heart strings? Have you felt the call to come “home”? Are you feeling more and more inclined to pray, seek direction, and make positive changes in your life? Are you tired of being beaten down by everyone and everything around you? Then we have some GOOD NEWS to share.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV
Did you know that over 2,000 years ago, Jesus came in the flesh as the perfect sacrifice for your sins? It’s true! He came so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. He came so that we could find a light in this dark world. He came so that He could show us what true love looks like. He came so that he could bare all the weight of sin upon His body – the sinless becoming sin – the ultimate sacrifice – so you and I could be forgiven. Did you know that no matter what you’ve done in your sin stained past, that He still loves you and still forgives you?
How to be Born Again
Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (AMP)
In order to be saved and become a born-again believer of Jesus Christ, all you have to do is acknowledge Jesus as Lord over your life – confessing with your mouth that He is Lord over all and was raised from the dead for our sins – believing all of this with your whole heart. That’s it! This simple act of obedience as according to Romans 10:9 gives you a new start – a fresh beginning as a born-again, spirit-filled child of God.
Still not sure how to do this? Then repeat this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I believe in my heart, and confess with my mouth that you are Lord over all. I believe that you came down to earth to die for my sins and that you were crucified, as the perfect sacrifice. I believe that you rose again from the dead. I invite you now, to come into my heart. In your name we pray, Amen!
Congratulations! You just became a born-again Christian!
It is imperative that you connect with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Find a local church or Bible Study group to get plugged in with. You can join us in one of our online book studies. This is vital to your growth as a Christian. You are now part of a body of believers and you cannot thrive outside of the fellowship of like-minded people. Even if it is only a phone call with a Christian sister once a week, that is a start. The main reason this is so important is for accountability. We cannot change and grow if we are not accountable to anyone.
Questions? Email us anytime. We are here for you. You can also email our prayer team for prayer 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We want to see you succeed in your walk with God and will do what we can to provide you with support.
