How to be Saved

God is not waiting to judge you. God is not waiting to condemn you. He is waiting to receive you with mercy and love, with open arms, and ready to forgive all your sins. Will you come to Him? Will you turn from your sin and promise to live for Him?

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

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12

First, admit that you, like all of us, are a sinner. Being sinners means we have wronged God and fall short of His perfect standard. It also means we are separated from Him and deserve His judgment.

But He loves us! God sent His own son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. He died for your sins. He was punished so you don’t have to be. Not only that, death did not defeat Him. After three days Jesus rose from the dead, alive again!

Trusting in Jesus’ sacrifice for you is the only way to find forgiveness from God and to begin a relationship with Him. We urge you to take this step of faith today. To do that simply talk to God – this is called praying – and tell Him you believe in His Son.

We suggest a prayer like this:

Dear God,

I’m a sinner. I’m sorry for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son. I believe that Jesus died for me on the cross at Calvary. That 3 days later Jesus rose from the grave. That Jesus is alive today. I want to invite Jesus to come into my heart to take control. From this day forward forevermore. And I pray this in the precious name of Jesus.

Amen.

If you sincerely prayed this prayer with your heart, you are now saved.  We suggest that you follow up with pastor Bobby on your decision and come join the New Beginnings Baptist Church family.
