To be saved is to submit to God and His plan and purpose for our lives. It is also turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus as we ask Him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in Him.
Romans 10:9 says that “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Salvation is God’s free gift to us and we become His children.
If you are unsure whether you are right with God or you know you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying this prayer:
Dear Jesus, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without you. I am sorry and I trust that you will forgive me. I accept your love and grace for me and ask that you would be my Lord. Help me believe in you and love you every day, and help me to show the world what you are like and how great your love is.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
Praying these words and opening your heart to Jesus is the most important step you’ll ever take as you begin your journey with Jesus. You’ve joined a family and we are excited to support your walk.
If you just said “yes” and decided to follow Jesus and as you prayed this prayer, please let us know by filling out a virtual Connect Card from the campus you attend, or the closest one to your home. Someone will reach back out to you, pray with you, and get you connected to the family! We do life together!
