What Must I Do to be Saved?

No more important question has ever been asked.

The Bible clearly teaches that there is nothing more important than the human soul, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matt 16:26 KJV).

 

The soul is so important because it will exist forever.

Have you ever stopped to think that a billion years from now, you will still be in existence? Your soul will be in one of two places: heaven or hell (these topics will be discussed later).

 

First of all, we must establish that there is a need to be saved at all. 

The Scriptures teach that whenever anyone who is of an accountable age commits a sin he is lost. 
(For a discussion on what "accountable age" is, please see the bulletin article entitled TULIP). 

 

So what is sin? 

"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3:4 (KJV). Sin is a transgression of God's law. When one transgresses God's law, he is separated from God, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Isaiah 59:2 (KJV). 

 

The wages of this sin is death

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."  Romans 6:23 (KJV). When one enters this state, he is in need of asking the question; "What must I do to be saved?" 

 

The Bible puts forth about five different things that one must do in order to be saved.

Hear - the word of God.

Believe - that Jesus is the Son of God.

Repent - of your sins.

Confess - your belief in Christ.

Be Baptized - for the remission of sins.

If you have not done these things, do them immediately and be assured of heaven.  Please contact Don by e-mail, phone (614) 890-4353, or enter this form and we will assist you.
