The Gospel

What is the good news about Jesus? How can I know for sure I'm saved and will go to heaven?

How can I know for sure I'm saved?

Choosing to follow Jesus is a simple decision but life's most important decision! We want to invite you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord.

What is the good news about Jesus?

Jesus lived the life I couldn't. Christ died for our sins. Jesus, God in human flesh, lived a perfect, sinless life. (Hebrews 4:15). We, are born seiners and regularly fall short God's perfect standards (Romans 3:23).

Jesus died the death I should've. he was buried. Even though Jesus lived a perfect life and did nothing deserving of death, he was killed (crucified) for us (Romans 5:8). Because of our sin we deserve death yet God offers us eternal life through Jesus' sacrifice in our place (Romans 6:23).

Jesus fixes the things I can't. [Christ] was raised on the third day. Jesus did what no other person has ever done, he came back to life and stayed alive forever. Don't just take our word for it. Over 500 people saw Jesus alive after his death on the cross! Jesus' resurrection from the dead proves that Jesus can give us victory over sin (Romans 6:23), death (1 Corinthians 15:54-55), and defeat (1 Corinthians 15:57).

Now I would remind you of the gospel ...Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, he was buried, he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time. (1 Corinthians 15:1–6 ESV)

These verses tell us about the gospel.

How can I be saved?

If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

(Romans 10:9–10 ESV)

Believing in your heart and confessing with your mouth (telling God and others you believe) is all you need to do. One way to do this is this prayer to help us say out-loud what we believe in our hearts! .

Lord, I know I am a sinner and I’m sorry.

I believe you, Jesus, died for my sins and rose from the dead.

Today I’m deciding to trust in you to save me from my sins.

Thank you for saving me!
