First Step...Meet Jesus - The Plan of Salvation



God loves you, and has a wonderful plan for your life.


  • John 3:16: For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

  • John 10:10b: My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.


Everyone needs salvation because we have all sinned.


  • Romans 3:10: As the Scriptures say, No one is righteous—not even one.

  • Romans 3:12: All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.

  • Romans 3:23: For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

  • Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins.


He paid the price for our death.


  • Romans 5:8: But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.


We receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.


  • Romans 10:9-10: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved

  • Romans 10:13: For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.


Salvation through Jesus Christ brings us into a relationship of peace with God.


  • Romans 5:1: Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.

  • Romans 8:1: So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

  • Romans 8:38-39: And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.


You can respond to the free gift from Christ by praying the prayer below:


Jesus Christ, I believe that you are Lord.  I believe that you died on the cross specifically for what separates me from God - sin.  I believe that you rose again from the grave to defeat death, and I seize my place on the other side of heaven after I take my final breath on this earth.  Right now, I throw a stake in the ground for a life of purpose and meaning.  I accept Your free gift, and I know that from this moment on, I am saved. I am a child of God.  Thank you that you allow me to walk in the newness of life. Amen.


Now that you are a "new creation" in Jesus Christ, the road ahead will be full of life-changing experiences.  If you prayed that prayer, please email us, and we will have a pastor contact you.
