How to be SAVED!
  1. Are you 100% sure your going to Heaven when you die? Salvation is placing your faith alone in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Every person is under the penalty of sin. The Bible says, "For all have sinned." Hell is a the place of punishment for all sinners. The Bible says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell." God loved us so much that He sent Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for sin. Jesus Christ was God in the flesh, the Bible says that Jesus was, "God with us." Jesus Christ Who was sinless, died for our sins, was buried, and arose again. The Bible says, "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." You must receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour, placing your faith in Him alone for salvation to have your sins forgiven and go to Heaven. If you believe what you have just read, and would like to be saved, believe and pray. Dear God, have mercy on me a sinner. Forgive me of my sins, come into my heart and save me. I believe Jesus died for my sins, was buried, and arose again. I turn to Jesus Christ today for my salvation, placing my faith completely in Him alone to save me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
    Jesus Saves!
