✟ First and foremost, is our belief in the perfect authority and innerancy of the KING JAMES BIBLE. We do not teach that it is an “accurate translation” or that it “contains the words (or message) of God”, but that the text of the KING JAMES BIBLE itself, are the actual written words of God to the English speaking people. We understand that the inspired scriptures were originally given predominately in Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament). But these “original autographs” have been lost for many centuries, and to rely on them as an authority, would be erroneous and false. Also relying on Hebrew or Greek texts can also lead to error, because of the huge variety of contradicting editions and variations of text types. There are at least 20 different Greek texts, and many different Hebrew texts as well. Which one is the correct one?
We therefore hold to the perfection of the KING JAMES BIBLE for 7 reasons.
1. It has the largest support of the ancient manuscripts and church fathers. Over 95% of all Greek manuscripts support the KJV. Over 2/3 of all ancient church father quotations also support the KJV.
2. It has out sold ALL other books ever printed in the history of mankind. (Over 6 Billion since 1611!) If it isn’t God’s word, then why has it prospered so much more then any other book or bible for that matter?
3. No other religious book (including the original autographs) has ever come close to producing the spiritual fruit (Luke 6:43 -44) that the KING JAMES BIBLE has produced in less than 400 years.
4. No other religious book has been able to accurately predict the future like the KJV has done in the last 100 years. (2 Peter 1:19-21, Matthew 24, 1 Timothy 4:1-3, 2 Timothy 3:1-5, & Revelation )
5. There have been over 200 new bible perVersions produced since 1881 to replace the KJV. ALL of them have failed! The only “successful” new bible versions are the ones which are owned, printed, and promoted by secular companies. For example the NIV is owned by Ruppert Murdoch, who is also the owner of FOX television network and the Satanic Bible of Anton LaVey! (Amos 3:3)
6. The KJV is the ONLY bible that has no copyright on it. God wants anyone to be able to publish His word. He isn’t for the greedy publishers who own the new versions. (1 Timothy 6:10)
7. The KJV was translated by a superior technique that guaranteed accuracy. There were 47 of Europe’s most brilliant scholars to work on the translation, and each book of the Bible had to pass through 7 different tests before it would be accepted as scripture. Many of the new versions of the twentieth century were written by only one or two men! The KJV was also translated at a time of much higher moral purity. Unlike the new versions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Our belief in the perfect authority of the KING JAMES BIBLE enables us to speak God’s truth to ANYONE at any time without being dishonest. (Matthew 7:28-29) It is a sad fact that MANY pastors and Christians call their bible “God’s word” and yet in their heart they do not believe that it is without error. (1 John 5:10-13) This leads to what Jesus referred to as a “hypocrite”. (Read Matthew 23) If you do not have a perfect Bible, then you do not have a perfect God and Saviour!!
God the Father
We believe that God is the Soul of the Godhead. He executes wrath (Romans 1:18) and judgment (Romans 2:16), as well as love, mercy, and grace (Romans 5:8). The bible teaches that "no man hath seen God at any time "(John 1:18). He resides in heaven and watches over the affairs of man (Proverbs 15:3).
Jesus the Son
We believe that Jesus is the Body of the Godhead (Colossians 1:15-18, Colossians 2:9). The bible says that Jesus was and is "God manifest in the flesh" (1 Timothy 3:16). It was Jesus who came to this earth in the likeness of sinful flesh (Romans 8:3, Hebrews 4:15), was born of a virgin by the power of the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:35), and that he shed his Divine blood (Acts 20:28) on the cross of Calvary as a vicarious substitute for all sinners (1 Timothy 2:6). Today Jesus resides in heaven as the mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5-6). He was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) by his own power (John 10:18), and ascended up to heaven, from whence He will personally return for all those that accept Him as their personal Saviour at the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17). Therefore, the main goal of this ministry is to preach the right Gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-4), revealed unto us by our apostle, the apostle Paul (Rom. 11:13), which is the only means of salvation for us today (Rom. 1:16), for all men will be judged someday by that Gospel, according to Rom. 2:16. We believe that the Gospel is the biblical bloodstained gospel of a JUST GOD seeking to be the SAVIOUR of the world, rather than the modern, perverted, bloodless gospel of social justice, in which man seeks to right his own preconceived wrongs based upon his own preconceptions of right and wrong. We further believe that the Bible is the standard of true morality and that the SCRIPTURES (66 books) tell us what is right from wrong
The Holy Ghost
We believe that the Holy Ghost is the Spirit
of the Godhead. He is "omnipresent" meaning everywhere at ALL times. It
is the Holy Ghost or "Spirit" that indwells the body of a believer in
Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 6:19). Evidence of the Holy Spirit in a
believer is an understanding of the truth of God's word (John 15:26
& John 16:13) and a oneness of thought among saved individuals (1
The Creation of Mankind
✟We believe that Adam, the first man, was created in God's image (Genesis 1:26), but through willful sin he fell. All other men descended from him are born in his (Adam's) image (Gen. 5:3) with a sinful nature (Romans 5:12), and are therefore under the just condemnation of God (John 3:36), and in need of a Saviour (Acts 4:12) and the new birth (John 3:3,7, 1:12). Further, because men are inherently evil (Matt.7:11, Luke 11:13), we believe in, adhere to, and hold fast to our God-given right to bear arms to protect ourselves (self-defense) from such evil men who might seek to do us harm, and we recognize the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States as not only a political declaration of that right, but more importantly, (as the founding fathers stated on many occasions), we recognize it as a GOD-GIVEN right to ALL MEN, that is clearly granted to us from the Bible itself (Luke 22:36,38).
The Payment for Sin
✟We believe that the penalty for sin has been paid by the ONE sacrifice forever of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary (Hebrews 10:10-12) through the blood atonement (Leviticus 17:11, Romans 5:11), of his offering himself as the sacrificial Lamb of God, but that His blood is not applied to a sinner's soul until he accepts the free gift of eternal life by faith (Galatians 2:16). That is to say that all men have a FREEWILL to either accept or reject Jesus Christ as their Saviour. But whether they do or not, Jesus did all that was necessary to save sinners, and it is up to them to receive salvation of their own accord. We do NOT believe in Calvinism (Deuteronomy 30:19, Joshua 24:15, Psalm 119:30, 111, 173, Ezra 7:13, Psalms 119:108, John 1:12, 1 Peter 1:2, Luke 7:50, Isaiah 53:6, 1 Timothy 4:10, 1 Timothy 2:4, 1 John 2:2, Hebrews 2:9, Matthew 23:37, Acts 7:51, Proverbs 1:24-26, Jude 1, 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, John 10:27-29, Galatians 4:9)! Nor do we believe in "self-atonement" or salvation by any works that MEN DO, rather it is the WORK OF CHRIST JESUS alone, and his ONE SACRIFICE FOREVER, that extends God's means of salvation to the lost and dying world.
✟We believe that salvation is offered freely (Romans 6:23) to all men, and is only obtained by GRACE through FAITH (Acts 15:11, Ephesians 2:8) in the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:25) without any mixture of works, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:9, Romans 3:28, 4:5).
✟We believe that once a sinner trusts Christ's shed blood and righteousness for salvation, he is immediately sealed with the Holy Spirit of God until the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13), and is eternally secure (John 3:16, 10:27-29 ; Ephesians 5:30).
The Body of Christ
✟We believe that all true born again believers in Christ are a part of the body of Christ, a spiritual organism the scripture calls the Church (Ephesians. 1:22, 23), which is Christ's bride (Ephesians 5:23-32, 2 Corinthians 11:2). Once a man is born again, it is recommended that he seek a good King James Dispensational Bible-believing local church (if he can find one nowadays) in which to fellowship with others (Hebrews 10:25) and hear the preaching of the word of God in order to help him grow as a Christian (1 Peter 2:2). We do not believe there is more than one body or bride of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:4).
The Priesthood of Every Believer
✟We believe in the priesthood of every believer (Revelation 1:6, 5:10), and that God commands each believer to walk in the Spirit and not after the flesh (Galatians 5:16), and, that believers are in the world, but not of the world, and should therefore live by the standards set forth in the word of God to show the world that they are different (2 Corinthians 6:14-17). We also believe that we are instructed from the scriptures to follow our own consciences, and we should never be forced by religion, the state, political pressure, or any other organization to sin against our own conscience (2 Cor. 4:2; 1 Tim. 1:5, 19; 1 Tim. 3:9, and 1 Peter 3:16). And in such cases that a secular power should attempt to force us to sin against God; we, as the holy apostles before us did, must conscientiously object, and resist such tyranny and oppression, as did the great saints of old, even dying for our faith in Christ Jesus as Christians have for centuries when oppressive regimes came to power and persecuted them for their faith in Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:35-39).
✟Example: Should the government ever forbid the preaching of the Gospel, and the meeting together of Christians for bible study (as do all communist governments), we most certainly will not comply, choosing rather to obey GOD rather than men (Acts 5:29). (We believe that the 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States is not just a government granted right, rather a God-given right, therefore, we believe in freedom of speech and not "banning" others rights to fully express themselves.
Satan and Hell Fire
✟We believe that Satan (also referred to as "the great dragon", "that old serpent", "the Devil" (Revelation 12:9), "Leviathan" (Job 41, Isaiah 27:1) is Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12-15) who was the "anointed cherub" (Ezekiel 28:14-16). Satan is a real being (Matthew 4:10,11, Revelation 12:9), who seeks to deceive mankind (Rev. 12:9 and 13:14) and damn their souls to Hell. We believe that hell is a literal place of fiery torment (Mark 9:46-48, Luke 16:24) for all souls that reject Jesus Christ and his sacrificial blood atonement for their sins, and all souls therein are destined to an eternal lake of fire (Revelation 20:13-15). We believe all men have a free will to either choose or reject Christ as their Saviour (Joshua 24:15, Mark 1:15, John 3:18, Acts 17:30).
The Return of the Lord Jesus Christ
✟We believe in the imminent, pre-millennial return of Jesus, which is two fold: First, in love to receive his bride unto himself at the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, and 1 Corinthians 15:51-55), and secondly, in wrath to destroy his enemies, and to set up a literal, visible kingdom of one thousand years upon this earth with Him as the Ruler, as prophesied in the book of Revelation chapter twenty. We further believe in the pre-tribulational rapture of the church.
✟We believe in two distinct judgments to come for all individuals. One, for a Christian, called the Judgment Seat of Christ, not to judge whether or not he is saved or lost, but to determine his rewards in service for Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11-15, and 2 Corinthians 5:10). And, the other, called the Great White Throne Judgment, for the lost who will be judged according to their works and cast into a lake of fire for rejecting Jesus Christ as their Saviour. (Revelation 20:12-15).
The Head of the Church
✟We believe the head of the Church is the Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:22, 4:15, 5:23; Col. 1:18), who is the head of all principality and power of the church (Col. 2:10), and not a man, an organization, a diocese, a religious denomination, or a secular government.
✟We believe that Marriage, according to the Bible, is between a man and a woman, and is a type of Christ and his bride, the Church (Eph. 5), and since Christ cannot divorce his bride (Hebrews 13:5) and believers cannot lose their salvation (1 John 5:11), that divorce (though there are grounds for it: (Death - Romans 7:1-4, 1 Corinthians 7:39, Fornication - Matthew 19:9, 1 Corinthians 6:16, and Desertion: 1 Corinthians 7:15, 27) is not recommended for a Child of God (Matthew 19:8, Mark 10:5-9) as it breaks the type of Christ and the church. We further believe that GOD himself instituted the institution of marriage, and that according to HIM and HIS word, marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman, and can never be between people of the same sex, for this breaks the beautiful type of Christ and his Church.
SodomyThe bible very clearly states that Sodomy is a sin. Leviticus 18:22 says, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Deuteronomy 23:17 says, “There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.” Romans 1:25-28 also condemns the sin of Sodomy. The bible also says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” The bible clearly states that “effeminate” men can get saved, but it requires a new life.
We reject ALL forms of Rock and Roll, Heavy Metal, and Rap music. The bible says in Ephesians 5:19, “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;” and in Colossians 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” The majority of Rock, Metal, and Rap music is centered around rhythm rather than MELODY. The beat in these three types of music is much faster than a normal heart rate, which leads someone who is listening to these types of music to be much more aggressive and violent. If you disagree with this, then I suggest that you visit a rock, metal, or rap concert sometime! The themes of these types of music are nearly always centered around the flesh. (Galatians 5:16-17) We also do NOT believe that these styles of music can be made “Christian”. (Ephesians 5:11)
Non-conformity and Biblical Separation from the world
The bible says in Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” We believe that as bible-believing Christians, we must NOT desire to be like the world around us. The bible says in 1 John 2:15-17, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” Also James 4:4 says, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” We do NOT believe in trying to be “like the world to win the world to Jesus”. That would be like jumping into quicksand to save someone who is sinking in that same quicksand! We believe in standing on the solid ground and pulling people OUT OF the quicksand.
The bible not only teaches non-conformity to the world, but also separation from the world. (2 Corinthians 6:14-17, Romans 16:17, Ephesians 5:11, & 1 Timothy 6:3-11)
A proper understanding of the bible REQUIRES “rightly dividing the word of truth”. (2 Timothy 2:15) We believe in 7 major “dispensations''. (The word “dispensation” occurs in 1 Corinthians 9:17, Ephesians 1:10, 3:2, & Colossians 1:25) These dispensations are;
1. The Garden of Eden. (Genesis 1:1-3:7)
2. The fall of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:7-24) till the giving of the law to Moses.(Exodus 20)
3. The law and the prophets until John the Baptist. (Matthew 11:13 & Luke 16:16)
4. The “gospel of the kingdom” is preached between the time of John the Baptist and the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The two kingdoms presented to the Jews in this period, were the kingdom of heaven which is a physical, literal, earthly kingdom. (Matthew 11:12) The other kingdom preached was the kingdom of God. This is a SPIRITUAL kingdom. (Luke 17:20-21, Romans 14:17) This “gospel of the kingdom” was preached because the King of kings (The Lord Jesus Christ) was physically on the earth at that time.
5. The crucifixion, till the rapture of the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:51-58 & 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) The book of Acts describes the formation of the Christian church and the development of our present gospel revealed to the apostle Paul. (Romans 2:16, 16:25-26, & 2 Timothy 2:8) The bible teaches that the gospel was first preached to the Jews (Romans 1:16) and because the Jews require a sign (1 Corinthians 1:22) the early apostles were given special “sign gifts” to confirm the gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark 16:9-20 & Acts 2). When Paul began to take the gospel to the Gentiles, the sign gifts were no longer necessary because the bibles says “....the Greeks seek after wisdom.” (1 Corinthians 1:22)
We do NOT believe in the heretical teachings of “hyper-dispensationalism”. (Stam, Bullinger, Moore, etc.) The bible plainly teaches that Paul was part of the same body of believers that Peter, John, Matthew, Mark, and Luke were part of. The gospel we preach today was not fully revealed until Paul showed up, BUT that doesn’t mean that the other apostles weren’t part of the same body of Christ that we are part of today! Paul stated in Romans 16:7 that there were believers “in Christ” BEFORE he himself was saved. To say that there are two bodies of Christ (crucifixion to Paul, Paul to the rapture) shows a high degree of ignorance of the scripture!
6. The rapture of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:51-58 & 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) until the second coming of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 24:29-41 & Revelation 19:11-21) This period known as the “great tribulation” (Matthew 24:21) and also as the “time of Jacob’s trouble” ( Jeremiah 30:7) will last approximately 7 years. In this period salvation is based on faith AND works. (James 2:14-26 & Revelation 14:12) In the tribulation ANYONE who takes the mark of the beast and worships his image, will lose their salvation and can NEVER get it back. (Hebrews 3:14, 6:4-6, 10:26-27, & Revelation 14:9-11)
7. The millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ on this earth (Revelation 20:4-6), will be the final dispensation. Salvation is accomplished through WORKS. (Matthew 5) No faith is connected with this dispensation because Jesus Christ will be visible to anyone on the earth! (Zechariah 12:10 & 13:1-6)
8. The new heaven and new earth (Revelation 21-22)
The extreme importance of clearly defining the above dispensations, cannot be overstated. Nearly ALL false doctrine taught today, is a direct result of NOT “rightly dividing the word of truth”. The huge variety of “Christians” stem mainly from not understanding the different dispensations.
1. ALL forms of Calvinism
3. Roman Catholicism
4. Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormonism, and Islam.
5. Campbellites (Church of Christ)
6. Preterism or Amillenialism
8. The Ecumenical movement
9. Prosperity gospel
10. Charismatic faking of Jewish sign gifts
11. Contemporary “Christian” Music (Rock, Metal, Rap, etc.)
Further, we hold the Biblical position along with the Reformers that the Roman Catholic Church is "the great whore" of Revelation 17, and are against the falsehoods taught in the major seminaries across the country: the lies of higher and lower criticism of the word of God. We believe in a practical, Biblical Christianity: prayer, personal work, giving, ministering to the saints, and a daily walk with Jesus Christ.
Communism and Socialism
✟We believe, because of the teachings of the Bible and because of the witness and testimony of history, that Communism and Socialism are NOT compatible with Christianity (as they seek to make the state god, as they always kick out the one true God and the Bible); for they have continually persecuted and even executed many Christians throughout the entire world (over 100 million deaths attributed to communism and counting) where their pernicious political ideals gain a foothold. Therefore, we reject any and all socialistic and communistic doctrines and ideas, choosing rather to follow the word of God. We further do not and will not accept, practice, comply with, or promote in any way, shape, or form the modern political view of "political correctness," rather we eschew it, and recognize its origin from Communism and communistic, atheistic ideals, acknowledging that such teaching is ANTI-BIBLICAL, and therefore not Christian. We view all Communistic and Socialistic practices, therefore, as satanic in origin, as coming from Lucifer himself, rather than God, and are political regimes with the sole intent of working towards building Satan's Anti-christ kingdom, otherwise known as the "New World Order," in which the Bible prophesies will come in the last days, and will reach its peak after the rapture of the Church in the tribulation period, and will at the battle of Armageddon be destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ himself.
✟Finally, we believe that Christianity is a teaching of GRACE, LOVE, and SPIRITUAL HAPPINESS (JOY), and is in NO WAY a "Terrorist" organization or is engaged in "terrorizing" others in any way, shape, or form. There are thousands of hymns within Christianity which prove the great theme of GOD loving us enough to DIE for us in our place. Yet nowhere within Christianity, nor in the Bible itself, do we find any commands for Christians to DIE as "martyrs" while killing others to obtain the favor of God. We, therefore, do not believe in or practice the senseless religious "killing" of others, thinking, (as some so-called religions do), that this will grant us a place in "paradise." Rather we believe that our entrance to heaven is only through the offer of salvation given through Jesus Christ and what he's done for us because he so LOVED the world (John 3:16). We therefore seek NO harm towards others, rather we desire only to see them SAVED from a devil's Hell through the atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ.
✟To reiterate, we do not believe in: "holy wars" or "crusades" or "jihads" or any such like, believing our warfare is SPIRITUAL and not CARNAL! (2 Cor. 10:1-4). Thus, we believe that a Christian in no way desires to KILL, MAIM, HARM, or DESTROY others, rather only to UPLIFT, EDIFY, EDUCATE, and INSTRUCT others on how to live a godly life of peace, joy, and good will towards others.
✟We believe, therefore, that it is not the mission of the Church, nor of individual Christians, to "terrorize" anyone. Nor do we seek to purposely "offend" anyone. However, we also understand, from the Scriptures themselves, that in the last days perilous times shall come (2 Tim. 3:1-4), and EVIL men shall wax worse and worse (2 Tim. 3:13), their consciences being defiled by SIN (Titus 1:15). Because of this, we realize that there will be many scoffers and mockers of Christianity (2 Peter 3:3), and so if someone claims to be offended with Christian doctrine, the Bible, Christianity, and/or the God of the Bible, we recognize that according to the authority of the word of God we instantly know two things about such people: 1. They do not LOVE God or his law (the bible), and 2. They have no PEACE. For Psalms 119:165 clearly states: "GREAT PEACE have they which love thy law: and NOTHING shall OFFEND them."
✟We, therefore, view ourselves and Christianity in general as a NON-OFFENSIVE teaching, which seeks to offend NO ONE, rather only to teach people the way to have PEACE with their Creator, and their fellow man (Rom. 12:18). We, therefore, as peaceful believers in Christ, reject all violence done in the name of religion.
✟We, however, view all opposition to Christianity and the teachings of God and the Bible as satanic in origin by reprobate (Rom. 1:28, Titus 1:16), degenerate people filled with HATRED (John 5:42) towards: God, purity, holy living, goodness, righteousness and godly piety. We further understand that because they have not a love of the truth, but find pleasure in UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (2 Thess. 2:12), they have been corrupted by sin, and therefore HATE all things pure and holy; for the which they mock, ridicule, and attack Christianity making fun of what they know not. To such, we desire no retaliation, rather we pray for them and hope they will see their evil and pernicious ways and repent before an almighty God. We further encourage such people, therefore, to practice tolerance, and to follow the law of the land, and the religious freedom that all religions enjoy under the constitution of the United States of America, and put up with what they don't like, even as we put up with them and their ungodly iniquity and sin. We might not like what they do, but we know that where "sin abounds, GRACE doth more abound" (Rom. 5:20), and our prayer is that God will give them time to repent of their evil, in the hope that they will be saved.
✟We believe that teaching from the Bible is not "Hate Speech" even though critics of the Bible might viciously, and with unabashed malice, attempt to label it such. Rather we accept the Scriptures as the words of the Living God (the Creator) who tells us what sin is (right from wrong), and we as Christians have a mandate and duty to proclaim to the lost and dying world exactly what the Bible says whether people like it or not (2 Tim. 4:2-4), whether it be popular or no, and/or whether it be "politically correct" in the eyes of others. To remain silent, or to change the message of God for the benefit of the hearer is unthinkable and impossible for the Christian, as we are to remain faithful preaching the word as God has given it to us (Titus 1:9-16), for to do otherwise is to sin against our own conscience and disobey the God of heaven, the author of our Salvation (Titus 2:12-15).
✟We, who are redeemed, desire only the redemption and eternal salvation of others, so that they might dwell in heaven with us for all eternity.
Did you know that there is a penalty for sin? That’s
right, just as man demands punishment for crime, God demands a
punishment for sin. The Bible says: “For the wages of sin is death…”
Rom. 6:23 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.” Rev. 20:14,15.
But God, in his mercy and through his grace, gave his son,
Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to pay the penalty for us. He now
offers Salvation from hell as a free gift, without any works on our
part, to anyone who will accept it. In order to accept this gift, you
Admit that you are a sinner: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Rom. 3:23 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Rom. 5:12 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” Rom. 3:10.
Believe that Jesus Christ Died for your sin: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;…” I Timothy 1:15 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” I Corinthians 15: 1-4
Receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” John 1:12 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Right now, if you’ve never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, and you would like to, simply go to God in prayer. If you’re not sure how to pray, you might pray something like this:
"Dear God, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus Christ was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe that his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive him as my Saviour. Thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation, and everlasting life, because of your grace. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen."
These are not some magical words that you repeat to get to heaven, they’re just an example of what you might pray to God if you honestly believe it and want to be saved.
If you have received Christ as a result of this message, please feel free to contact us to let us know, and we’ll be glad to pray for you and answer any questions you might have.
