How To Be Saved
Welcome to our website! We here at Temple Baptist Church in Milan Tn. want nothing more than to see people saved and come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. That being said, we have put together a clear and understandable salvation plan for anyone, that is easy to understand and easy to follow in their path to becoming a Child of the King.
Step 1) You must first understand that every person born into this world is lost and condemned until they receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
John 3:17-18, "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him (Jesus) is not condemned: but he that believeth not ( in Jesus) is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Step 2) You must understand that we have all sinned and fallen short of the God's standards.
Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Step 3) You must understand that you cannot earn your salvation on your own.
Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost."
Step 4) You must understand that Jesus is the only way to be saved and the only way to the Heavenly Father.
John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Step 5) You must confess Jesus as Lord of your life, confess your sins to Him, trust that He died for your sins, and place your full trust and faith in Him as your personal Lord and Savior and believe that God raised Jesus from the dead in order to be saved.
Romans 10:8-9, "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
If you trust and believe by faith everything that we have covered then simply pray this pray in your own words, "Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, in need of a Savior. I realize I cannot earn my own way into Heaven without you. I trust that you died for my sins and by faith I receive you into my heart and I trust you to save me and seal me with your Holy Spirit. I believe you died for my sins, shed your blood as payment for those sins, was buried and rose the third day to the glory of the Father. In Jesus' name I pray Amen!"
If you prayed that prayer trusting Jesus by faith as your own personal Lord and Savior you are now a child of the living God and we would love to hear about your transformation.
