How to be saved
the 6 step plan
How do people become saved€¯ and born again€¯ Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die?
- Admit that you are a sinner.
The Bible says, For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God€¯ (Romans 3:23).
- Know that God has already provided for your salvation.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life€¯ (John 3:16).
- Know that you cannot save yourself.
Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us€¯ (Titus 3:5).
- Repent of your sins.
Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish€¯ (Luke 13:3). You must be willing in your heart to turn from all sin. This does not mean you will not sin but when you do sin the Holy Spirit will convict you! If you can sin without the conviction power of the Holy Spirit you are NOT saved!
- Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved€¯ (Romans 10:13) and Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved€¯ (Acts 16:31).
- Proclaim Jesus before others.
If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation€¯ (Romans 10:9, 10).
