Plan Of Salvation

Why must I be saved?  How can I be saved?

What is your condition? 

No one is righteous, all have sinned.

  • Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
  • Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of GOD”

What is your problem?

Eternal death is the penalty for sin.

  • Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death;”

What can you do about the problem?

Nothing, absolutely nothing, but God.

  • Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
  • Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ  our Lord”

How do I receive this gift?

Trust the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins.

  • Romans 10:9 “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.”
  • Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

What is my condition after I trust Christ as my savior?

You are no longer condemned to eternal death.

  • Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in
    Christ Jesus, . . .”
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Is there any other way of salvation?

No, there is one and only one way.  No exceptions.

  • Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
  • John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
