Salvation comes from the Greek word soteria, which means "deliverance,
preservation and safety." It primarily involves deliverance from the
bondage of sin (Romans 9:20-23; Galatians 5:1). Salvation also includes
deliverance from enemies (Luke 1:71) and sickness and disease (Isaiah
53:4; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).
gift that is made available to those who repent, believe and confess that
Jesus is Lord and that He died and rose from the dead to save mankind
(Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10). This gift cannot be earned through good
deeds or by simply being a "good person" (Ephesians 2:8;1 Timothy 1:9). It
is a matter of faith (acting out on what you believe according to God's
Word concerning salvation).
Steps to Complete Salvation
following steps will help you obtain and maintain the salvation
experience. It involves a process that will not only guarantee your
entrance to heaven, but also position you to experience the benefits of
heaven on earth.
Recognize/Admit That You Are a Sinner.
Because of Adam's sin of disobedience in the Garden of Eden, all of
humanity was affected by, and infected with, sin (Romans 5:12-14). Mankind
took on the nature of sin. Therefore, everyone that was born after Adam
was born into a life of sin and death (Psalm 51:5).
Repent of Your Sins.
repent simply means to "change one's mind; to change one's direction; to
have a change of heart." It involves making a 180-degree turn away from
sin and heading in the right direction toward God. Repentance does not
mean "I'm sorry." It is a quality decision to ask forgiveness of your
sins, turning away from ungodly living and submitting to God's will for
your life (1 John 1:9). Step 1: Pray out loud, “Lord, I repent of my
sins. I ask you to come into my heart.”
Confess Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Confession affirms Jesus' lordship (place of authority) over your life.
Confess that He is your Lord and believe that He lived, died and was
raised from the dead for the forgiveness of your sins. Step 2: Pray
out loud, “I make You my Lord and Savior!” You are Saved! Tell Someone!
Be Baptized in Water & Pray to Receive the Holy Spirit.
Water baptism is a symbolic representation of Jesus' death, burial and
resurrection. Just as He was baptized, so must you be baptized (Matthew
3:6). You go down into the water, carrying your old man (lifestyle) with
you, and die to yourself and your old way of living (Romans 6:3-11). When
you come up out of the water, you are a "new" person. When you become
born again, ask for prayer to receive the Holy Spirit and when It takes up
residence in your heart It becomes your Teacher, Comforter and Guide
through life (John 14:15-17, 23, 26).
Obey the Word of God & Read Your Bible! It is medicine to your flesh!
Maintaining your salvation and enjoying its benefits is done by living
according to God's Word (Proverbs 3:1-4; 1 John 5:3). Make His Word the
final authority by which you live. Make sure every decision you make in
life is biblically based. The Word must be your foundation.
