How Can I Be Saved?
Do you have an actual relationship with God? - not ritual, not religion, relationship?
There really is absolute truth! - and it is found in the Bible. These few lines on a web page are not designed to provide you with proof that the Bible is the Word of God, but we do want to give you an opportunity, right now, right where you are, to realize that God really does exist, He really does love YOU, He really wants a relationship with YOU, and you really do live forever - - but this life here on earth is not your forever life. God is in charge and He has made a way - one way, and only one way - for you to know Him, to love Him, to know He loves you, and to be with Him forever: Jesus Christ is that way, that one and only way. No person can be good enough in himself to be in right standing with God and be with God forever in Heaven after this earthly life, NO ONE. But God loved us so much that He provided a way for ANYONE to have a relationship with Him and live with Him forever. Jesus Christ, God’s Divine Son, left Heaven to come to earth as the only way for our sins to be forgiven and our lives to be made right with God. Jesus, God in the flesh, came to earth over 2000 years ago, lived a sinless life, died a horrible death as our substitute, actually rose from the dead, and ascended up into Heaven, making it possible for us to be with God forever! Accepting Jesus as the perfect Redeemer of our souls, taking on our sins for us, puts us in a right relationship with God! If you are not living a life that is centered in Jesus, you do not have to wait for a Sunday service to start a relationship with Him. Right now, you can talk with Jesus just like you would talk to your best friend. This is what the Bible, God’s Word, says:
The word that saves is right here, as near as the tongue in your mouth, as close as the heart in your chest. It’s the word of faith that welcomes God to go to work and set things right for us. This is the core of our preaching. Say the welcoming word to God—“Jesus is my Master”—embracing, body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead. That’s it. You’re not “doing” anything; you’re simply calling out to God, trusting him to do it for you. That’s salvation. With your whole being you embrace God setting things right, and then you say it, right out loud: “God has set everything right between him and me!” ~Romans, Chapter 10, The Message Bible
Accept Jesus as your Savior, believe the Bible as God’s Word, and confess to Him that the sins in your life can only be forgiven through Jesus. It really is that simple to enter into an actual relationship with the God of the whole world! Living daily for God will be a huge challenge, a hard thing to do, a long process, BUT something you will do with God Himself helping you every step of the way! Everything you go through as a follower of Jesus Christ (a Christian), you go through with God in control!
