God's Plan Of Salvation

"Today is the Day For Salvation!" If you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, please do not put off today this Great Gift from God. Can you say that you're 55%, 75%, or 100% sure of where you will spend eternity? You can know today beyond a shadow of a doubt. These simple facts and steps below can give you a peace beyond all understanding, and 100% assuredness of where you will spend eternity.

Why We Need To Be Saved.

We are all sinners.

The penalty (punishment) for sin is death!

When Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden took the temptation that the Serpent laid before them, Sin entered the world to be passed down from them, till now. God had a plan then for the sin of the world!

How This Is Made Possible

God's Love For Us.

It doesn't matter what you have done, how bad you think you have been, or that no one could love someone like yourself, God does, and so much, that he gave His Only Begotten Son, to die for your sins that you might have eternal life, a home in Heaven, joy unspeakable and a life worth living!

How To Accept This Free Gift From God!

We must receive His free gift of salvation!

Salvation is a free gift from God and cannot be obtained thru any other means. You can't work your way to Heaven; You can't buy your way into Heaven; Nothing you can do on your own, or by any way or deeds, will get you into Heaven; Just being a good person will not enter you into Heaven. It is a gift that each one of us must receive by the grace of God through faith!

The Bible says in Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast."

Titus 3:5-7 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he hath shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."

The Jailer at Philippi asked Paul and Silas in ACTS 16:30-31 "And brought them out, and said, Sirs what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."

To receive this free gift of salvation is as simple as bowing your head right now, right where you are and asking for God's Gift Of Salvation.

Dear Lord,
I know that I am a sinner, I believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for my sins, was buried and rose from the grave. I ask you now Lord Jesus to come into my heart, and take away my sins, and save my soul. Change my heart and life Lord, to be what you want me to be! I thank you Lord for the forgiveness of my sins, your gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your mercy and grace!

Just take God at his word, and claim His salvation by faith. Believe and you will be saved. God's power will save you, and keep you saved, and help you live a victorious Christian life.
