Your heart tends to run from God and rebel against Him.  The Bible calls this “sin.”  Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Yet God loves you and wants to save you from sin, to offer you a new life of hope.  John 10:10 says, “I have come that you may have life, and have it abundantly.”

To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

You receive this gift by grace through faith alone.  Ephesians 2:8 says,
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is a gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Faith is a decision of your heart demonstrated by the actions of your life.  Romans 10:9 says, If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

If you are choosing right now to believe Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins and to receive new life through Him, pray a prayer similar to this one thanking Him for the promise of eternal life:

“Dear God, I know I am a sinner.  I believe Jesus died to forgive me of my sins.  I now accept your offer of eternal life.  Thank you for forgiving me of all my sin.  Thank you for my new life.  From this day forward, I will choose to follow You.”

If you prayed this prayer, share your decision with a Christian friend or pastor.  If you are not already attending church, we invite you to worship and grow with us at Central.  Following Christ’s example, ask to be baptized by immersion as a public profession of your faith in Christ for your salvation.

If you would like to talk to someone more about salvation or if you are willing to share with us your salvation experience please contact Pastor Jeffery Singletary at
