ABC’S of Salvation
Accept, Believe and Confess
Accepting Jesus is as simple as learning your ABC’s. Sometimes we make it so hard to bring someone to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I want you to know that if you are looking at this page, then the Holy Spirit lead you here. Today is the day that you can become a new person in Christ. You don’t have to be at church to get saved. Right now, right where you are is the perfect time and place to ask Jesus into your heart.
A – Accept that you are a sinner saved by the grace of God through His son Jesus Christ. The bible tells us that we all have sinned.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Because of the sin that Adam committed in the Garden of Eden, we all were born into this world as sinners in need of a Savior. But when God sent his son Jesus to die on the cross, He paid the price for our sins.
“God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!” (Romans 5:8)
No one can get to heaven without accepting Jesus. We have to do it God’s way. If we chose to do it our way, then we die and go to hell. If you don’t believe this, then I challenge you to read God’s word for 30 days. If you have tried everything else, then why not try God.
B & C– Believe and Confess in Jesus.
“…If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
The above scripture says it all. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth. Stop for just a second, I want you to know just how much God loves you, the you that you are right now. Jesus gave up everything to die a brutal death on the cross. He was beaten, whipped, and spat on for sins He did not committed. He did all that so that you could live for eternity in heaven with Him.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
God loves you with a love that is unexplainable, unending, and immeasurable. There is no sin that is too great for God to forgive you of, no sin!
You now know the ABC’s of salvation. If you are ready to accept Jesus into your heart, then pray the prayer below.
Lord Jesus, I ask You to forgive my sins and save me from eternal separation from God. By faith, I accept Your work and death on the cross as sufficient payment for my sins. Thank You for providing the way for me to know You and to have a relationship with my heavenly Father. Through faith in You, I have eternal life. Thank You also for hearing my prayers and loving me unconditionally. Please give me the strength, wisdom, and determination to walk in the center of Your will. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Congratulation, now your walk with God begins. Pray and ask God to lead you to a church that will help you grow in your walk with the Lord. Invest in a bible so that you can start to learn God’s word and apply it to your life. And as a symbol of your commitment to Jesus, be baptized in water.
