• Let Us Pray With You

Prayer of Salvation

I invite you to pray a prayer that will change your life forever; a prayer that will allow Jesus Christ, The Savior of the world, to come into your heart and life with His saving grace and gift of eternal life; a prayer that will allow God to welcome you into His Kingdom and royal family. God will become your Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ your Savior and King and the Holy Spirit your Ever-Present God who will live and be with you forever. Please pray this prayer with me:

Dear Jesus,

"I believe in you and I believe that you died for me on the cross, rose again and is now seated with the Father in Heaven. Please forgive me for my imperfections, mistakes and sins. I acknowledge you, Jesus, as my Savior and Lord as I surrender my life to you today.
I thank you Heavenly Father for loving me and for accepting me into your royal family that is in heaven and on Earth. Please help me to live for you. In Jesus' name. Amen."

Understanding Salvation

The word salvation includes forgiveness of sins, restoration, healing, help, safety, victory, freedom and provision. Jesus Christ is the author of our salvation. His death on the cross and His resurrection made atonement for the sins of the world. Those who are humble enough to acknowledge their need of forgiveness and restoration with God are saved through Jesus Christ. Salvation is freely offered to all men but is conditioned upon their repentance and faith in Christ.

Jesus said, “I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.” John 12:48.
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household.” Acts 16:31.
Jesus, our Savior, is also our Provider, Defender, Advocate, Rescuer, Preserver, Helper, Protector and Lord.

The New Birth

Salvation is also called being “born again”. “In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” John 3:3.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

We were born in the natural by human parents and we inherited their genes, nature and physical characteristics. To be born again is to receive the Holy Spirit of God who gives us spiritual life and the nature and mind of God. We become God’s “offspring”, “children”, and “family”. We now belong to the family of God. 
The new birth is a creative act of God that comes by the believer’s faith in God and by the power of the Holy Spirit. A miracle happens as we receive a new heart and our spirit becomes one with God. We become children of God, born of His Spirit and heirs of His Kingdom. “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” John 1:12,13.
