GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION
THE BEST RELATIONSHIP YOU CAN EVER HAVE
Christ desperately wants to have a personal relationship with you, the most fulfilling relationship you can ever experience. Have you come to know Christ in a personal way? You can know him personally by doing the next four things.
"I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." -John 10:10
"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
Realize Christ's Desire
He wants to give you a satisfying and meaningful life on earth and unending life in heaven.
and come short of the glory of God." --Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
Recognize The Dilemma
As humans, we are all sinners who have displeased God in a variety of ways. Our sin prevents us from experiencing the life that Christ desires to give. Unless forgiven, we face eternal separation from God.
"But god commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8
"he was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification."-Romans 4:25
Rely on Christ's Death & Resurrection
Christ died that you might be forgiven of sin. But he is no longer dead! He was also resurrected and is now ready to give you the forgiveness and life for which he died.
"That if thou shalt confess with they 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
"For this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living."- Romans 14:9
Respond With a Decision
You can be saved through faith: "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast" (Eph.2:8-9).
You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer(talking to God):
Is there anything hindering you from believing in Christ and surrendering to his leadership today?
If not, pray this prayer: "Dear Lord Jesus, I believe you died for my sins and was raised from the dead. Please forgive me and give me an eternal relationship with you. I surrender to your leadership in my life right now. Thank you for saving me!"

"NOW THAT I HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS MY PERSONAL SAVIOR, WHAT DO I DO?"
I. YOU MUST FELLOWSHIP WITH A LOCAL BIBLE BELIEVING/TEACHING CHURCH
God's Word says for us to "not forsake the assembling of ourselves together" (Hebrews 10:25).
II. YOU MUST TRUST THAT CHRIST IS IN YOUR LIFE...DESPITE HOW YOU MAY FEEL. GOD HAS ANSWERED YOUR PRAYER. He Promises Eternal Life to All Who Receive Christ.
"God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 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 lilfe, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." 1John 5:11-13
