Salvation Only In Jesus: Jesus is the only way by which anyone can be saved and have eternal life with God. No religion or person can save anyone.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”, (John 14:6, NKJV).
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”, (Acts 4:12)
All Have Sinned: The Scripture tells us, ALL, everyone without exception, have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,(Romans 3:23). This sin of all came through Adam and Eve, in the garden of Eden. Since then, the nature of sin has been passed down to everyone, from generation to generation. The end result of sin, without confession and salvation is death. The death is first in the Spiritual, because we become separated from God, then in the physical when we die, and then eternal death, in hell and lake of fire. However, this is not what God wants, because He loves us. He wants us to have Eternal Life through Jesus, (Romans 6:23).
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 6:23, NKJV)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”, (Romans 6:23, NKJV)
Forgiveness of Sins & Eternal Life In Jesus: For us to have Eternal life, God gave His only begotten son, Jesus, as The Messiah or Savior, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life, (John 3:16). God demonstrated His love for is all by sending Jesus to come and die for all of us, so that we can have life, (Romans 5:8). He died on the cross, was buried and rose up from the grave after three days, so we too may have life.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” ( John 3:16,NKJV)
Therefore, whoever believes in Jesus, confess their sins with their mouth, and accept Him in their heart as their Lord and Savior, will be forgiven and saved, (John 6:47, Romans 10:9-10):
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”, (Romans 10:9-10,NKJV)
Gift of Salvation Is For EveryOne: This gift of salvation is for everyone. It does not matter who they are, their present position or situation, what sins they may have committed in the past. When they confess and accept Jesus, their sins are completely wiped away from God’s records and are never remembered by God again or counted against them again, (Isaiah 43:25, Hebrews 8:13).
The confession must be made by each person. It cannot be made on behalf of another person. Also, we do NOT need to go and confess to another person, or priest. You do not need another intermediary for the confession of sins. You can do so, even as you’re reading this page. Each person, where ever they are, in their homes, work, or any place they are, can confess their sins and invite Jesus into their lives. They will immediately receive God’s mercy and salvation.
Prayer of Repentance:
God Almighty, my creator and of the heavens and earth, thank you for your love. Thank you for the gift of your Son as redeemer who came to die for my sins. I want to receive Him into my life this minute. Therefore, I confess all my past sins and ask for your forgiveness through your Son, Jesus. I invite Him, your only begotten Son, the source of Eternal Life, into my life. I also ask you to release your Holy Spirit into my life so that I can be empowered to know you more and to live a life that will please you from now on. I pray this and also thank you through your Son, Jesus, (Amen)
Congratulations if you have just said the above prayer. Your sins have been forgiven by God, just as He promised. No matter the nature. They are wiped clean and remembered no more, (Hebrews 8:12). It is as simple as that. No more guilt. You have become a completely new person. You are now in Jesus as a child of God. You are pure and perfect before Him.
Becoming A New Person: Anyone, who confesses their sins and receive Jesus into their life, is automatically empowered to become an adopted child of God through Jesus, (John 1:12). The person becomes like a new person, a new creature, through Jesus. Old things, including old sins and life of sins are removed, and is given a new life, (2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV):
” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV)

Pray Daily: There is no specific time, position, posture, or place to pray. You can pray as many times a day as you want, anywhere you are, for as long or short as you want, sitting or standing, silently or aloud, eyes open or close, as long as your mind is focused on God.
However, when you pray, you should pray, ask or make your requests to God through the Name of Jesus. His name is the key, power or authority to receive from God. He promised: “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son”, (John 14:13).
Ask for the gift of His Holy Spirit to live within you, guide you and help you to grown in God. And every time you read the bible, ask for the Holy Spirit to teach you, help you understand and remember what you read. The Holy Spirit helps to overcome the desire to live in sin, and also releases the nature of God into everyone who believes in Jesus. The nature, is called the fruit of the spirit, including love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, perseverance and self-control, (Galatians 5:22-23). However, sin of any form including hate, anger, rage, murder, unforgiveness, adultery, fornication, idolatry, sorcery, jealousy, uncleanness, lewdness, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, drunkenness, revelries, coarsing, etc are not of God.
