How to be Saved (Born Again)


EVERY PERSON
IS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD

For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son (Jesus Christ),
that whoever believes in Him (Jesus Christ) shall not perish (die and go to hell)
but have eternal life.
John 3:16

EVERY PERSON IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD.

For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death
.Romans 6:23


EVERY PERSON HAS BUT ONE WAY TO REACH GOD.

Jesus said to him,
"I am the way and the truth and the life,
no one comes to the Father (God) except through me."
John 14:6


Christ died for our sins...
Jesus was buried...
He was raised on the third day, according to the scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:3-6


EVERY PERSON IS CALLED TO MAKE A PERSONAL DECISION
TO RECEIVE AND ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST
AS LORD AND SAVIOR.

But as many as received Him (Jesus Christ),
to them He gave the right to become children of God,
even to those who believe in His name.
John 1:12


For by grace you have been saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God,
not as a result of works, that no one should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9


EVERY PERSON
MUST INVITE JESUS CHRIST INTO THEIR LIFE.

AND
ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST
MEANS REPENTING and TURNING TO GOD.

"Behold, I (Jesus Christ) stand at the door and knock;
if anyone hears My voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him..."
Revelation 3:20


You, too, can accept Jesus Christ this moment

You, too, can accept Jesus Christ this moment by asking Him to come into your life.
You can do this by praying a prayer like this:

Lord Jesus, I need you. I confess to you that I am a sinner and have sinned against you. Please forgive me of my sins! I turn my life over to you and accept You as my God and Lord and Savior. I invite You to come into me and to take control of my life in every area of my being. I give you permission to be my Lord and Master forever..

Thank You, Father God, for forgiving my sins -- past, present and future -- and for sending Your Son, Your only Son, Jesus, to die for my sins and to give me eternal life.

Thank You, Father and Jesus, that You have promised that You will never leave me or forsake me now that I have asked you to come into my life. Amen."


-NICODEMUS WAS CONFUSED ABOUT BEING BORN-AGAIN

    It is written, Jn 3:1-3-THERE WAS A MAN OF THE PHARISEES, NAMED NICODEMUS, A RULER OF THE JEWS: THE SAME CAME TO JESUS BY NIGHT, AND SAID UNTO HIM, RABBI, WE KNOW THAT THOU ART A TEACHER COME FROM GOD: FOR NO MAN CAN DO THESE MIRACLES THAT THOU DOEST, EXCEPT GOD BE WITH HIM. JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN-AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Jesus has just given us a condition for seeing heaven. That absolute condition is you must be born-again. Few people today understand the new birth, including preachers. In a survey taken, many people incorrectly thought that being born-again was simply an experience or a feeling they had. Others believe being born-again is simply to believe on Jesus Christ.
    Jn 3:4-NICODEMUS SAITH UNTO HIM (unto Jesus), HOW? Note Nicodemus' first word, "How?" He didn’t understand the concept of the new birth, even though he was a spiritual leader in Israel. Indeed, he was a ruler of the Jews and a master of Israel. NICODEMUS SAITH UNTO HIM, HOW CAN A MAN BE BORN WHEN HE IS OLD? CAN HE ENTER THE SECOND TIME INTO HIS MOTHER’S WOMB, AND BE BORN? These words show us that such a concept as the new birth taking place in a person was something he did not understand, as is the case with many preachers today. Recently, a well-known person in the world’s largest religious denomination was asked about being born-again. He stuttered and seemed confused, and was unable to give a satisfactory answer.

THE NEW BIRTH MUST TAKE PLACE IN US,
 OR WE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD

    JESUS ANSWERED, VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN OF WATER AND OF THE SPIRIT, HE CANNOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD-Jn 3:5.
    Note in 1 Jn 5:6,8-THIS IS HE THAT CAME BY WATER AND BLOOD, EVEN JESUS CHRIST…AND THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR WITNESS IN EARTH, THE SPIRIT, AND THE WATER, AND THE BLOOD: AND THESE THREE AGREE IN ONE. Again, Jesus makes it clear. A new birth must take place; indeed, born of water and of the Spirit. Jn 3:6-THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE FLESH IS FLESH; AND THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT. Clearly, Jesus is showing us that there are two births. The first birth is of the flesh. This is what we call our birthday. Yet a second birth must take place, or we cannot see the kingdom of heaven.

How to be born again

How do people become “saved” and “born again” Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? A widely distributed Christian tract says the following is what the Bible requires.

  1. Admit that you are a sinner.
    The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
  2. Know that God has already provided for your salvation.
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
  3. Know that you cannot save yourself.
    “Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” (Titus 3:5).
  4. Repent of your sins.
    “Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
  5. Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
    “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
  6. Proclaim Jesus before others.
    “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10).

You can be joyously “saved” and “born again” and receive eternal life right NOW, as millions of people worldwide have, when you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior.

Can you genuinely say a prayer like the following? If you are sincere, God will immediately save you and give you everlasting life.

A guide to what to pray:

“Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins [sins are wrongdoings]. I am willing to turn from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by God's grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life.”

What next?

Would you like to show your faith in Jesus right now? Start by letting someone (another Christian) know you are saved. (Let us at Creation Tips know too, of course; or even just let us know if you are not sure whether anyone close to you is a born-again Christian. Click our email address at the bottom of this page and let us know, for our records, the date you were saved.) Then …

Get a Bible and read it every day to get to know Jesus Christ better.

  • Talk to God in prayer every day.
  • Tell others about Christ.
  • Join a Bible-believing church and get baptized. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church that truly believes the Bible and where Christ is preached.

[As a born-again Christian you will now miss out on what the Bible describes as the alternative to spending eternity in Heaven. Here's a glimpse of what it may be like.
