What is Salvation?

We are all sinners by nature and by choice.

  • For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

We receive eternal life as a free gift.

  • For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

God demonstrated His love for us, His enemies.

  • But God demonstrates His own love for us, in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8

We must trust and surrender to Jesus as Lord.

  • If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.  Romans 10:9-10

A sinner’s prayer for forgiveness.

  • “Dear God, I know I’m a sinner.  I know my sin deserves to be punished.  I believe Christ is the Son of God, who died for me and rose from the grave.  I want to turn from my sin and trust Jesus Christ alone as my Savior.  Thank You for the forgiveness and everlasting life I can now have through faith in Jesus.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Our assurance of salvation through Jesus.

  • For anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.  Romans 10:13
