Prayer of Salvation

God loves you--no matter who you are, no matter what your past. God loves you so much that He gave His only begotten Son for you. The Bible tells us that “…whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16, NIV). Jesus laid down His life and rose again so that we could spend eternity with Him in heaven and experience His absolute best on earth. If you would like to receive Jesus into your life, say the following prayer out loud and mean it from your heart:

Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner. Right now, I choose to turn away from sin, and I ask You to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on the cross to take away my sins. I also believe that He rose again from the dead so that I might be forgiven of my sins and made righteous* through faith in Him. I call upon the name of Jesus Christ to be the Savior and Lord of my life. Jesus, I choose to follow You and ask that You fill me with the power of Your Holy Spirit. I declare that right now I am a child of God. I am free from sin and full of the righteousness of God. I am saved in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Before of after you have prayed the prayer above, please explore the links below, especially the first one, "God's Plan of Salvation". This is a wonderful resource that explains the steps to Salvation, and what to do after you have given your life to Christ! I have read all of the information on the links below and have been so blessed by it that I felt compelled to share it. Interestingly, my older niece became a Christian on August 1 of 2010, and one of the lessons she studied in her Foundation Class was the "Five Principles of Spiritual Growth". She was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ on November 28 of the same year!
