gods plan of salvation

Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”(John 14:6)

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Creator or Liar?

The Choice

Unloved

Trust Jesus Christ today! Here’s what you must do:

  1. Admit you are a sinner.

    “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)

    “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”(Romans 5:12)

    “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”(1 John 1:10)

  2. Be willing to turn from sin (repent).

    Jesus said: “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”(Luke 13:5)

    “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:” (Acts 17:30)

  3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

    “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)

    “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

    “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)

  4. Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour.

    “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:10)

    “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

What to pray: Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour.

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)


If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should:

  1. Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better

    “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”(2 Timothy 2:15)

    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

  2. Talk to God in prayer every day

    “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”(Matthew 21:22)

    “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”(Philippians 4:6)

  3. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority

    “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”(Matthew 28:19)

    “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”(Hebrews 10:25)

    “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”(2 Timothy 3:16)

  4. Tell others about Christ

    “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)

    “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16)

    “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

  1. What if I was baptized as a Christian as a child, then went through my adulthood being Agnostic and did not lead a Christian life? Would I be re-accepted?

    • You do not have to be baptized to be saved. The thief on the cross was saved. Simply believe that Jesus died for your sins on that cross and was resurrected just like the Scriptures teach. 1 Cor. 15:1-4 That’s it! If He truly is your Lord and Savior you will do what He says …not because you have to but because you want to! It is a love relationship between you and the God of the universe! John 14:21 He’s been waiting for you. Just start right here and now … leave the past behind .. Phil. 3:13… and praise Him! His mercies are new every morning! Happy New Years, Dorothy!

    • Hi Dorothy

      In response to your question: 1. based on my understanding of the Bible, infant baptism (if this is what you are referring to) is not Biblical. 2. If you are not referring to infant baptism, and you were baptised as a child, the question then is whether you had accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. The Bible says that we are to repent and then be baptised for the remission of sin. Baptism without repentance is pointless and of no value. Baptism is of great value however once it follows true repentance, because it is signifies publicly that our old sinful nature has died in Christ and that we have been born again of the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. 3. I would argue that based on your admission that regard yourself as an Agnostic, it appears to me that you have not yet surrendered your life to Christ. If this is the case, I would urge you to do so now, and then be baptised as an adult in obedience to the teachings of the Bible. I trust that this is helpful in some way and pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to you in great measure. Kind regards – Alan

  2. I was thinking about your question Dorothy. You didn’t say what age you were when you were baptized. If you were an infant that really doesn’t mean anything because in the Bible all the folks who were baptized were “believers”. Infants cannot “believe”.If you were older and just made a profession of faith without truly believing in your heart then that baptism didn’t mean anything either. If now you truly believe in Jesus as your Lord and Savior you should indeed obey Him and be baptized as a believer. Mind you, baptism doesn’t save … it is Jesus alone that saves.He will never turn away anyone who is a true believer. Hope that helps.

  3. I was a true believer when I was baptized. I guess I am like one of the flock that strayed as I got older. I’m sure you’ve heard similar stories, as children become adults, it’s too difficult to maintain chastity and I reasoned that why would God condemn the flesh, when he made me? I also couldn’t/can’t reconcile the existence of dinosaurs, evolution, the age of the universe and the planet. But I have thought recently, I think it’s possible to have those beliefs and also have a personal belief in Jesus.
