Plan of Salvation

The Word of God says, "Ye must be born again," that you must receive Him as your personal Saviour, that you must confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that the wages of sin is death and that God has made provision for men to 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." I John 5:13

All of these are Bible truths; however, there is a requirement often overlooked. That is "REPENTANCE." Repentance is defined as turning from something to something else. Bible repentance is turning from sin and then turning to God because salvation is of the Lord and not of men. Repentance is a command of God.

"And the times of this ignorance God winked at: but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent." Acts 17:30

"Marvel not that I said unto thee, "Ye must be born again." John 3:7

These are the words of the Lord Jesus Christ. Most people have no idea what it means to be "born again." It means that you have received the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal saviour by asking Him into your heart and to save your soul.

"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God." John 1:12

"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. Romans 10:9

Salvation is knowing in your heart that if you died you would go to heaven. It is a gift of God.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

After looking at these scriptures and considering your condition before God, would you not take the time to cry out to a Holy God who can save your soul?

Salvation is real and is available to those who desire to be saved. It is a life changing experience.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." II Corinthians 5:17

If you have taken the time to read this tract, would you not take the time to consider the Lord Jesus Christ? No matter what men may say there is no other way.

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.. Acts 4:12

If you have received the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our church, give us a call at the church office or send us a note of your salvation exeprience to our church address. We would like to send you some material to further help your walk with the Lord.

May God lead and guide you during this decision of your life.

Dr. Bill Forde, Pastor
