Salvation – What must I do to be saved?


1. Admit where we stand with God.

  • The Bible says that we are all born with a sinful nature.  Romans 3:23 (NLT) For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
  • Even if we feel we are good morally, but have not asked Jesus Christ into our hearts we are not saved.
  • We must admit we need Christ in our life.

2. Confess that Jesus is Lord.

  • Romans 10:9-10 (NKJV) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
  • Philippians 2:10 (NKJV) and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
  • Call out to God and confess that He is Lord and Savior.

3. Ask for forgiveness of your sins.

  • 1st John 1:9 (NKJV) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  • Simply ask God to forgive you. You must mean it from your heart.
  • He will forgive you.

4. Tell someone (testify) that you have been saved by Jesus Christ.


5. Talk with one of the staff pastors about water baptism to follow your salvation in Christ Jesus.

  • Water baptism is an outward expression of your inward experience in being saved.
  • Symbolizing burying the old man and being raised from the water a new man in Christ.

6. Join the New Believers Bible Study to begin your journey with the Lord.

  • Reading and studying God’s Word begins the process of guidance for your life.


About Faith

Did you know that the word faith or faithful appears 303 times in the New Testament (NKJV).  This is a very important word. 

  • It takes faith in God to be saved.
  • It takes faith to pray to God.
  • It takes faith if you need a mountain moved.
  • It takes faith if you need peace in your life.


Romans 5:1-2 (NKJV) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Faith is important to us in everything we do in life. Faith helps us to rise up and do the work of the Father.
How are you exercising faith daily?
  • Is it faith in your job?
  • Faith in your relationships on this earth?
  • Faith in your investments?
What will count when everything else fails us is our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Determine to put God first in your everyday living and exercise faith in Him everyday.
