The ABCs of Salvation

 

 

God wants you to live "The Abundant Life”.  This includes the blessings of good health, financial prosperity, inner peace, joy unspeakable, and of course, salvation for your soul.  The very first step in achieving "The Abundant Life" is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  He wants to forgive you of all of your sins, help you to live a victorious life, and prepare you to go to heaven when this life is over.     

 

Knowing that your sins are forgiven and that you are ready for heaven is as simple as the following steps:

A. Admit you have sinned...

"For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us"      (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe in Jesus...

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

C. Confess and leave your sin...

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).

Sincerely pray the following prayer:

Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I'm a sinner, and I'm sorry for my sin.  I ask you to forgive me of all my sins.  I believe you died on the Cross, you were buried, and  on the third day, God, the Father, raised you from the dead.  Right now I receive you into my heart as my Savior and Lord.  Thank you for saving me and help me to live for you from this day forward.  Amen.

Congratulations on becoming a part of God's family and welcome to "The Abundant Life"!

 
Obviously, this is only a first step.  Ask God, in prayer, to lead you to a church where you can be taught more about His Word and be filled with His Spirit.  If you are in the Washington, DC area, we certainly welcome you here at the Abundant Life Church.
