God's Plan of Salvation

To Become a Christian is God’s Will for Everyone

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
I Timothy 2:3-5

You can be saved and know it.

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

I John 5:13

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

I John 5:13

There are four things you must know.

God is Holy.

We are sinners. Because of pride, many people are not ready to admit their failures.  Instead, many want to think of themselves as just fine the way they are.  However, God’s Word clearly displays our true condition.

Romans 3:10 says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”  While we may try to live a good life, we all fail.

Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  We all fall short of living up to the perfection of God.

God is Just.

Sin must be punished.  God always punishes sin and rewards righteousness.  Because of His justice, God cannot overlook our sinful actions and thoughts.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”  The penalty God has chosen for sin is death—eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.

God is Love.

Jesus paid our penalty.  Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth and lived a sinless life.  And because Jesus loved us so much, He sacrificed His own life on the Cross for us.  His death fulfilled the penalty for our sins.

Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Do you realize how much God loved us?  In His justice, God demanded death for our sins, but in His love, God’s Son died for our sins.

God is Faithful.

He will forgive our sins.  When we place our trust in the death of Jesus as the complete payment for our sins, we are forgiven of our sins and invited into the family of God.  Through Jesus, we are saved from the penalty of Hell and receive an eternal home in Heaven.

Romans 10:9 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”  Will you trust in what Jesus has already done for you?

If you are ready to place your trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross, you may call out to God right now.

There are no special words to pray. You simply must call out from a sincere heart. Here is a sample prayer that may help you better understand how to call on Jesus for salvation:

“Dear Lord, I confess that I am a guilty sinner and that I need to be saved. I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay my sin debt and that He rose from the grave three days later. Please forgive my sins, come into my heart, and save my soul.”
