PLAN OF SALVATION: Salvation Explained


The Bible teaches that every person needs salvation from sin. Because of the sin of Adam the first man and because of our own sins we all fall short of the perfect righteousness required for us to be able to live with God. There is no amount of good works, religious activity or moral uprightness that can cancel out the debt of our sin. God has provided for us the only means by which we can be saved . He accomplished this for us through the death of His Son Jesus Christ who suffered and died in our place on the cross of Calvary. There on the cross Jesus made it possible for us to be forgiven our sins by suffering the penalty of death on our behalf. This salvation from God is a gift which He gives to us according to His grace, kindness, mercy and love. We cannot earn it, buy it or merit it ourselves in any way.

In order for us to receive this gift we must exercise personal faith believing the truth of this gospel message and accepting the forgiveness God offers to us. God calls us to repent of our sins, and receive His Son Jesus as our Savior from sin and Lord of our lives. To become a Christian is to join yourself by faith, not to a religious organization but to a person, Jesus Christ, the risen and living Son of God, Savior of the world and Lord of all.

While we are invited to come to God and freely receive this gift by faith we are also warned that those who reject Gods love and authority, and who fail to respond in repentance and faith will punished by God being separated from Him in a place called hell forever.

Knowing the love which God has for us and in light of these warnings we urge all to consider the following biblical truths regarding personal salvation and we encourage you to respond to God and the Gospel in faith and obedience.
