How to get to Heaven?
Acts 4:12
The plan of salvation was laid out by God as the way for us to become a Christian and to have the promise of salvation and Heaven in our heart and soul. Many try to make this plan difficult to understand, but God made it very simple for us to be saved.

A- Admit:
Admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent, turning away from your sin.
“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”
                                                            Romans 3:23                                      
“The wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life.”
                                                            Romans 6:23
 
 
B- Believe:
Believe that Jesus is God's Son and accept God's gift of forgiveness from sin.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever
believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."
                                                         John 3: 16
 
 
 
C- Confess:
Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
That 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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." 
                                                          Romans 10:9-10, 13
 
Pray to God a prayer something like the following:
 
 “Dear Lord,
I know that I have sinned and sin separates me from you, Lord. I believe
Jesus died on the cross for me. I now repent of my sins. Jesus, I want you to
come and live in my heart. I want to spend eternity in heaven with You.
Amen.”
 
If you prayed this prayer, we would like to be there to rejoice with you and provide support.  Please contact our church to speak with a minister.
 
Accepting Christ is just the beginning of a wonderful journey with God! Get to know Him better in a number of ways:
* Follow Christ's example in baptism.
* Join a church where you can worship God and grow in your faith.
* In your church, get involved in Sunday School and a ministry.
* Begin a daily personal worship experience with God where you study the Bible and pray.

 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole person, and it is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart created by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace.

Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour.

B. Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God.

C. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life.

D. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
