To Be Saved
Receiving Christ Jesus as your personal Savior and Lord is the most important decision you will ever make. If you are not sure whether you saved or not, here are some important things you need to know, which according to the Bible, are essential in being saved:

How to be Saved
Jesus loves you and wants to come into your life, if you will just invite Him. He cares for you personally. THINK OF IT! The same Lord who created the universe, who has existed since the beginning of time, who being one and the same with God Almighty, came as a baby, became one of us, died for us, and was risen from the dead -- this same Jesus Christ LOVES YOU!

He says in the Bible that He stands at the door of our hearts and knocks (Rev. 3:20). He does not barge in by knocking down the door, but instead He awaits for your permission to enter.

* We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). As we invite Him into our lives, we begin with a prayer of confession, admitting that we have sinned against God and others.
* We are to ask for His forgiveness (I John 1:9).
* We are to believe in our hearts and confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord and that God indeed raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:8-9).

Being saved is a gift God gives us, which results from His grace functioning through our faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). Salvation is not based on our own goodness, but God's. It does not come through our own effort to "live a good life", but comes when we receive Him and believe on His name - this is, believe what He tells us about Himself (John 1:12-13).

Contrary to what many have somehow come to believe, a person is not born a Christian. Being saved involves one's full understanding and choice. It is something that happens "all at once" - just like being born again. It doesn't happen because we do good things and live a clean life. We become saved the moment we confess Jesus as our Lord and Savior (Acts 16:30-31).

You can be saved anywhere - at home, in your auto, at work or school, wherever and whenever we honestly pray and invite Jesus to be our Lord and Savior (Acts 16:30-31).

If you have never made this commitment, please allow us to share Christ with you. One of our pastors or altar workers would be delighted to pray with you personally any time.
If you prefer, you may pray this prayer right now:

Lord God, I now acknowledge that I have sinned against you, and like everyone else, I have fallen short of your glory. I am sorry, please forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you came to pay the penalty for my sin without You deserving it. Thank you for dying in my place. I believe that You rose from the grave and you are alive today. I need your presence in my life. Come into my heart and help me live a full life in accordance to your Word. Send your Holy Spirit to fill me and empower me to live a victorious and productive life. Teach me to serve you and to help others... Amen.

Salvation......
