Here is a link to our foundational Beliefs.
- Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
- Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
- Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Salvation, in Two Bible Verses and Less than 150 Words
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”– Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV
First, Salvation, comes through God’s grace alone, exclusively through our faith in Jesus Christ, alone. And second…
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”– Romans 10:9-10 ESV
We must profess our faith by openly acknowledging Jesus Christ as both our Savior and our Lord. Further, we need to believe in our heart (not just our head) that He died and rose again as a payment for our past, present, and future sins.
146 words to be exact. We can all spend our days talking about the latest election results or the theology of speaking in tongues, and everything in between. In the end, we will either go to Heaven or Hell for eternity, regardless of all that we think or say about God, He is sovereign and has told His children what the narrow path to eternal life is based on (Matthew 7:13-14). Solomon, the wisest man (beyond Jesus) that ever lived said life is “vanity of vanities”. Shakespeare made the same point by saying, “we strut and fret our hour upon the stage and then are no more”.
Salvation brings infinitely more to man than anything we can possibly acquire through our own efforts. And, if it can be explained in less than 150 words, how amazing is that!
The Sinners Prayer
There is no formula for asking the Lord to save your soul for eternity. The prayer below is a guide for what you need to believe, both intellectually and with your heart, sincerely. Approach God with faith that He will give you the strength to repent or turn from your sins and receive eternal forgiveness (Acts 3:19).
“Lord God, I know I am a sinner and I know your Son died on the cross for my sins, and rose from the grave. I know that no one comes to you except through faith in your Son, Jesus Christ. I ask you to come into my life, forgive me of my sins, and save my soul. I turn over my life to you as both my Lord and my Savior. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
“I GUARANTEE THAT YOU CAN KNOW PEACE WITH GOD, PEACE OF SOUL, PEACE OF MIND, AND JOY SUCH AS YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED.”
Admit your need. (I am a sinner) Be willing to turn from your sins. (Repent) Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to control your life through the Holy Spirit.
