If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
HOW TO RECEIVE SALVATION
1. Admit you are a sinner in need of a Savior.
2. Be willing to repent and turn from sin.
3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried and rose from the dead.
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and take control of your life.
Receive Him as Lord and Savior.
A suggested prayer (I recommend repeating the prayer with sincerity and in your own words):
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I have sinned against you and stand in judgement. I need your forgiveness, I need Jesus. I know Jesus can be my Savior. I repent and turn from sin today. I turn back to You and right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. I put my trust and hope in Jesus Christ and accept the free gift of salvation you have provided in Him. Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
If you just prayed this prayer with sincerity, then you are now saved and are born again. CONGRATULATIONS and welcome to the Kingdom of God!!!!
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
