                                      The Salvation Message

How Do I Get Saved?

Accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior is the only way to salvation.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. Is 43:11

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household." Acts 16:30

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 5:24 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. I Timothy 2:5

Acknowledge you are a sinner For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Rom 3:23
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:11-13

Repent of your sins Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out. Acts 3:19 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Come to God through Jesus, Accepting Jesus in your heart That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10

Water Baptism and Receive the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Live a sanctified life in fellowship with the Lord and your Christian family
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:41-42
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Heb 12:14

In a true heart of repentance pray a prayer similar to this model prayer:

Father God,

I thank you for sending Jesus to die on the cross in my place for the sins I committed. I now repent of all my sins and ask for your forgiveness. I ask Jesus to come into my heart and live forever as Savior of my life. Fill me now with your Holy Spirit so I may live a life pleasing to you. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Child of God,

Know that you already have the victory over the enemy of your soul. You just need to believe it and exercise your rights to liberty. The enemy of your soul will continuously look for opportunities to over come your faith, so you must be fully persuaded and steadfast. Read, commit to memory and meditate on scriptures like those below until your faith is built up and then pray to the Father acknowledging your liberty and victory through Jesus Christ.

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:12-14

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4: 7-10

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:4-5

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:14

Now praise Him for your victory!
