What must I do to be Saved?

The most important question you will ever ask yourself is, "What must I do to be saved?" "What must I do to be brought into the right relationship with God?", should concern everyone who has ever drawn a breath! There is no relationship more important, or has more eternal consequences, than your relationship before God.

First, the bad news! We are all under sin (Romans 3:9). No one is righteous (Romans 3:10). We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The wages of our sin is death (Romans 6:23). Because of sin, you stand separated from God and destined to an eternity in Hell. You cannot save yourself! There are no deeds, or works you can perform to satisfy God's righteous requirements!

Now, the good news! The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). That debt of sin you owed, has been paid in full by the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord. Christ was delivered for your offenses on Calvary's cross (Romans 4:25). He took upon Himself your sin. He became sin for you, although He knew no sin (2 Corinthians 5:21). Why? In order that you might be made the righteous of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).

"In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Ephesians 1:7).

Christ was raised again for your justification (Romans 4:25). Our Lord was bodily resurrected from the grave; conquering death! Now, based on the death, burial and resurrection of the Son of God, God the Father saves you "by Grace, through faith; and not that of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8&9). Titus 3:5 tells us, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us...."

In this day of Grace, what we must do to be saved, is to believe on the the Lord Jesus Christ. By faith believe that He died for you, was buried, and rose again. When you believe, you are made a NEW CREATION, baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ. Your sins are forgiven and you stand before our Holy and Righteous God perfect in Christ! You cannot earn it, work for it, or buy it! By faith believe today! God loves you and has provided THE WAY for you to be reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ!

We would welcome the opportunity to open God's word with you and show you from the Scriptures, what you must do to be saved.
