The Good News

Well, the truth is, it's not actually what you do, but what God has done to accomplish salvation for anyone.

There are a few things you must know to be saved

We are sinners, and are all held accountable to God.

...This will take place on the day when God judges people's secrets through Jesus Christ. - Romans 2:16

The bible says that God is holy and we are not. The bible says that all of us have fallen short of the glory of God and that the wages of our sin is death.

How can I be saved?

The Bible provides a clear answer. Here is the answer from God’s Word, the Bible, that tells us how God saves us.

Acknowledge your sin

First, see yourself for what you are… A Sinner!

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" – Romans 3:23

Sin is tragic, vile…it blights, degrades, destroys. It has dire consequences: “The soul who sins is the one who will die (be separated from God forever)” “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life”

Repent of your sin

"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out…" - Acts 3:19

Repentance is a change of mind, a change of heart, and it results in a change of actions. You must change your mind about sin and want God to end its mastery over you. After all, sin is so bad it took Christ’s death to make forgiveness possible for you.

Believe in Christ Jesus

"God So loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" - John 3:16

Believe in the completed work Christ accomplished on the cross. You must believe that Christ substituted Himself for you, that He died for your sins (though He never sinned), and that He was resurrected from death. “The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him”. Our sins nailed Him to the cross, and “by His wounds we are healed. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”

Set your whole life upon that truth

"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

You must believe in Christ and receive Him personally into your life by faith if you are to be saved from the power of sin and its consequences. “To all who receive Him, to those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God”. Will you pray to God something like this?

“God, I am convinced I am a sinner, and that Christ alone can save me. I repent of my sinful life and believe Jesus Christ died for me. Please forgive me for my rebellion against You and help me to live with Jesus as Lord of my life.”

 

If that is now true of you and Christ is your Saviour and Lord, the next step is to get connected with God's people and grow in your life with Christ. We would love to help you do that. You can contact us to speak with someone more about becoming a Christian and getting connected to our church.
