Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. Only by trusting in Jesus as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Those who became Christians in the early church followed this pattern and we do the same today.
Believe In Jesus
Acknowledge Him as God’s Son and ask Him to be your personal forgiver and leader.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9-10
Turn away from sin; change your direction by doing a U-turn to begin following Christ.
When you are immersed in water, you are united with Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection, and receive His presence and power for living a God-pleasing life.
Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. – Acts 2:38
(Also see Romans 6:1-4; Romans 6:23; Mark 16:16; Ephesians 2:8)
