Everyone NEEDS to be saved because all have sinned.
- Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
- Romans 3:10 "There is none righteous, no not one."
We all deserve HELL because of our sin. God is Holy and cannot allow sin into Heaven. The payment for sin is an eternal Hell.
- Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death."
- Revelation 20:14,15 "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."
We cannot save ourselves by our church membership, baptism, or good works. Jesus Christ is the only one who can save you from the payment required for your sin.
- Ephesians 2:8,9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast."
- Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us."
Jesus Christ died and rose again to save you from an eternal Hell. He paid the penalty for your sin.
- Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
- 2 Cor. 5:21 "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
Salvation is a free gift which is received by faith when you repent of your sin and trust Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.
- Luke 13:5 "...but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
- John 3:16 "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."
- Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
- Hebrews 2:3 "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;"
