Do you need help understanding how to be Saved?

We at Calvary Baptist Church firmly believe that there is one way to get to heaven and that is through the saving power of Jesus Christ. Most people only have a general idea about what it takes to be accepted by God. If you were to die today, would you know for sure that you would be spending eternity in the presence of God? If the answer to that question is no, there is wonderful news that you CAN know for sure. Please understand that this assurance can only be attained during life and the decision to make peace with God can only take place before the time of your death. Since no one can know the moment of their death, it is of the utmost importance that you call out to God and ask for forgiveness of your sins now.

Understanding God’s purpose

The Bible says…

“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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17 (KJV)

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1 (KJV)

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 (KJV)

God loves you very much and wants you to experience life “more abundantly”. He gave up His only Son Jesus Christ to die a horrible death nailed to a cross, beaten, mocked, and tortured in order to give you a pardon from your sins. Jesus Christ willingly gave up his own life to pay the debt owed for Your sins.

Admit and Confess your sin

God created all of us with free will. Free will means that He will never force you to accept Him. He humbly waits for you to admit you are a sinner and are separate from Him. Since the beginning of mankind, people have tried to figure out a way on their own to bridge the gap separating them from God. But the Bible says…

“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God.” Isaiah 59:2 (KJV)

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12 (KJV)

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 (KJV)

Despite all of man’s efforts to become acceptable in the eyes of God, there is still NO other way except through Jesus Christ. No act of kindness, No gift you can give to a Church, No charity, and Not just simply living a good life or being a good person in the eyes of others will bridge that gap separating you from God. God provided one and only one way for you to be cleansed of your sins and be welcomed into His presence. Jesus Christ!

Discover that Bridge

As mentioned before, Jesus Christ took the form of a human, lived and preached God’s Word, lived a perfect and sinless life, but died on the cross to pay the penalty of Your sins. He took Your place! Three days after His death He rose again from the grave and returned to heaven to be with His Father. This one act of love is the only bridge that you might be with God also.

The Bible says…

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV)

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (KJV)

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:28 (KJV)

Because God loves you, He provided a way for you to spend eternity with Him. Forgiveness can only come from Him. You have a choice to accept this wonderful gift.

Accept the Truth

You must trust in Jesus Christ and receive Him in your life under your own free will.

Jesus said…

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 (KJV)

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV)

Are you ready to become a child of God?

The only way to find peace with God and receive the gift of eternal life in heaven with Him is to pray and ask Him. He is a perfect Father and waits for you to just ask Him. If you are ready to claim victory over sin and become what God wants for your life, say this simple prayer,

“Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner. I know that You died for the punishment that I deserved. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my heart. Thank you for providing a way for me to find peace with God. Help me to live the rest of my life in a way that would please You. I know that I don’t deserve this free gift of eternal life, but I know that You love me enough to offer it anyway. I claim the victory over sin in my life in Your Name. Amen.”

If you just prayed that prayer and truly meant every word, you have the assurance that you are at peace with God. This decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior has saved you from an eternity of separation from God. You will never be the same.

The Bible says…

“To all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12 (KJV)

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life.” John 3:36 (KJV)

What Calvary Means to Me

I’ve been an active member of Calvary Baptist Church for over 7 years now and am truly proud of what God is doing here.  I’m happy to say that I have a wonderful, loving, and accepting church family that not only cares deeply for me, but also for our community.  While serving in the Army and deployed to Iraq, my church family constantly sent me emails, cards, and letters to let me know that I was cared about and prayed for.  I can’t thank my church family enough for how much they mean to me and my family.
