How to obtain salvation

Salvation is obtained by faith, which is believing in, trusting in, relying upon, and resting in Christ’s shed blood on the Cross, which is His finished work. This a person does from the heart (in their soul and spirit), and not by simply praying The Sinner’s Prayer parrot-fashion, although this verbal confession can be made once the person has received the free gift of salvation in his / her heart.

A person is saved / born-again when that person believes in his / her heart that it is possible because of Christ’s perfect substitutionary sacrifice on the Cross for him / her, and that salvation is obtained because of what He did, His shed blood, and not anything that person has done or can do.

The sinner’s prayer

Dear Heavenly Father

I come to You in prayer, asking for the forgiveness of my sins.

I not only confess with my mouth, but truly believe in my heart that Jesus is Your Son, and that He died on the Cross at Calvary so I might be forgiven and have eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven.

Jesus, I believe that You rose from the dead, and I ask You right now to come into my life and be my personal Lord and Saviour.

I repent of my sins, and will honour, worship and praise You all the days of my life!

Because Your Word is truth, I confess with my mouth that I am born-again and cleansed by the blood of Jesus! I believe in my heart that it is because of Jesus’ shed blood, His finished work, and not my works, that I have now received the free gift of salvation.

Thank You Father.

In the name of Jesus.

Amen.
