We want you to know...
You need to be saved:
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." - Rom. 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death..." - Rom. 6:23
"Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." - John 3:3
You cannot save yourself:
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us." - Titus 3:5
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works lest any man should bost." - Eph. 2:8-9
Jesus has provided for your salvation:
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Rom. 5:8
"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16
You must once and for all accept Jesus for salvation:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." - Acts 16:31
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Rom. 10:13
"But as many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on His name..." - John 1:12
"Ye must be born again ... that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:7-16
"He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - John 3:18
When a person hears the gospel, he comes to realize he is a sinner doomed for eternal hell. The knowledge of his sin produces sorrow and a willingness to be saved.
Then the sinner, lost and condemned, knowing from God's word that Christ will save him, is led to trust Christ to save him by surrendering himself wholly into His hands.
If you have never trusted Him as your Saviour, you can do so right now by simply praying with faith:
"Lord, I realize that I am a sinner, and that you paid the price for my sin. Please forgive me of my sin and save me. I here and now accept Jesus as my Saviour. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
Once you have thus committed yourself to Christ, believing that He will do just as He promises, Christ takes over. You do not have to pray this way and make this commitment but once. The great transaction is done, once and for all!
