Salvation:
God loves you, and He wants you to live in peace with Him and to receive eternal life.

The Bible Says...
John 3:16-17 ESV “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (17)  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."

Our Problem: Sin & Separation

The Bible Says...
Romans 3:23 ESV "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"

And that sin has a payday…
Romans 6:23 ESV "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

And that our sin separates us from God…
Proverbs 15:29 ESV "The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous."

God's Remedy: The Cross
Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem of separation from God. He died on the cross and rose from the grave to pay the penalty for our sin--completely bridging the gap between us and God.

The Bible Says...
Romans 5:8 ESV "but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Acts 4:12 ESV "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."

Our Response: Receive Christ
We can receive Jesus Christ when we believe in His message and trust in Him alone to save us.

The Bible Says...
Romans 10:9-10 ESV "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  (10)  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved."

The cross builds a bridge from anxiety and sin to peace and forgiveness!

How to Receive Christ:
1. Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.
4. Through prayer, surrender to Him as your Lord and Savior, confess your sins to Him and ask Him to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit.

What to Pray:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died to pay the penalty for my sin. I want to turn from my life of sin and surrender my life to You. Please come in to my heart and life.
In Jesus' name, Amen.

God's Assurance: His Word
Romans 10:13 ESV "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Your New Life:
When you receive Christ, you are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit, who dwells in every believer. This is called regeneration or "new birth." God bless you as you begin your wonderful new life in Christ. Please let someone know that you are a Born-again believer.
