How To Be Saved

Only one bridge makes it possible for us to cross from death to life. His name is Jesus.

Bridges are more than simply a means to get from Point A to point B. Bridges make it possible for us to access what was once inaccessible. Spiritually, only one bridge makes it possible for us to cross from death to life. Jesus alone is the way to God.

The Bible records a phenomenal event that took place when Jesus died on the cross: “the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Mark 15:38). This refers to the huge, heavy, thick curtain in the Jewish temple that hung before the most holy place. Its tearing signifies that through Jesus’ death, all human beings now have access to God. That the curtain was torn from top to bottom signifies this was the work of God, not human hands.

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). He is waiting for you now.

Steps to being saved through Jesus’ death:
1. Admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent, turning away from your sin.
2. By faith receive Jesus Christ as God’s Son and accept Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. He took the penalty for your sin by dying on the cross.
3. Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

You may pray a prayer similar to this as you call on God to save you: “Dear God, I know that You love me. I confess my sin and need of salvation. I turn away from my sin and place my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”

After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, tell a pastor or another Christian about your decision. Show others your faith in Christ by asking for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith.
