The Bible Plan of Salvation
(How you can know from the Bible that you are going to Heaven)
All Men Are Sinners
No matter how moral a man may be, God's Word clearly says that he comes short of God's Righteousness.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
All Are Under the Penalty of Sin
The ultimate penalty for sin is death, or separation from God forever in the lake of fire.
"For the wages of sin is death...." Romans 6:23
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:15
Christ Died to Pay the Penalty For Sin
God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to Die in your place on the cross. As your substitute, He took your penalty, your sin, and your Hell on Himself.
"But God commended His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. " Romans 5:8
Salvation is Offered Free
Christ purchased salvation with His blood on the cross, and offers it as a free gift. A gift is not yours until you receive it.
"... The gift of God is eternal life..." Romans 6:23
Christ Must Be Received for Eternal Life
"But as many as received him to them gave He power to become the sons of God..." John 1:12
Behold, I stand at the door and knock, If any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me." Revelation 3:20
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
If you will receive Christ by calling upon Him to come into your life and give you eternal life, believing that He will save you as the Bible says, Christ will come into your life at that very moment and save you. Just make that decision now, and call upon Christ, "Lord Jesus, I receive you now as my Savior, the one who died for all my sins; come into my heart and save me and give me eternal life. "
The Final Steps
After receiving Christ, you will want to take these steps to grow in Christ:
- Let us know, that we can rejoice with you, and offer further help.
- Publicly profess you faith in Christ at a Bible-believing church (Matthew 10:33)
- Pray and study God's Word (II Tim.2:15)
- Be immersed and join a Bible-believing church (Matthew 28:19,Acts 2:41).
