Step 1 - God loves you and has a plan for you
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10). But here’s the problem:
Step 2 - Man is sinful and separated from God
We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23). The good news?
Step 3 - God sent His only Son to die for your sins. This is why He came.
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. "God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) But it didn't end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! "Christ didied for our sins...He was buried...He was raised on the third day, according to the scriptures". (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus Himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me". (John 14:6)
Step 4 - Would you like to receive God's forgiveness and redemption?
We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior. This is a simple example - please personalize it:
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
…to all who did receive Him,
who believed in His name,
He gave the right to become
children of God.
