NEXT STEPS

Salvation

A – Admit
Salvation begins by admitting to God that you are a sinner. The word “sin” just means to “miss the mark”. If you’re honest with yourself, you have to admit that you’ve missed the mark of God’s standard for your life many times.
The Bible says,“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” and “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 3:23; 6:23).
Jesus taught that salvation begins with repentance, which means to turn. Turn from your old lifestyle today by admitting your sin to God.
B – Believe
John 3:16 has rightly been called “the gospel in a nutshell”:“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” God does not want you to die in your sin, but to give you eternal life through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Only Jesus’ death on the cross can give you life, which is why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).
Salvation comes through trusting in Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. 
C – Confess
If you know that you’re a sinner, and believe Jesus died to save you, then you simply need to confess this to God.
The Bible says,”If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10)
You can confess your faith and be saved right now! If you pray to God and confess your faith in Jesus, God will hear you and you will be born again.

Here’s an example of a prayer to pray to God sincerely in order to be saved and have a new relationship with God:

Lord Jesus,
I believe that you died on the cross for my sin.
Lord, forgive me of my sins,
cleanse me and make me new.
Jesus, I believe that you rose again, that you are alive.
Come into my heart, come into my life.

I trust in You alone to save me and give me eternal life.

From now on I want to follow you as my Lord and Savior. Amen.

If you’ve prayed to receive Jesus into your heart, congratulations! Welcome to the family of God!

The Bible says that the angels in heaven rejoice over one sinner who repents (Luke 15:10), and we do, too!

Baptism

 
Jesus commanded us, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:18), and “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16).

Jesus set the example for us to follow in being baptized (Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, and Luke 3:21-23), which the Apostles and early church continued afterwards, baptizing all who believe (Acts 2:38-41; 8:37-38; 10:48).

Baptism is an outward, physical demonstration of the inward, spiritual reality of salvation that has taken place in a believer’s life. The immersion in water (the Greek word “baptize” literally means “to immerse, douse or saturate”) symbolizes the sin that has been washed away (Acts 22:16), the believer’s union with Christ in His death and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12) and thus their initiation into the global body of Christ (Galatians 3:26-28). 

 At Discovery, we regularly celebrate baptisms, which are one of the highlights of church life!

 If you are interested in getting baptized, please contact pastor John: john@discoverychristian.org
