Take your first step in a lifelong journey with the Creator of the universe. He loves you and paid a high price to have a relationship with you.

The Bible says we all have sinned.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 New King James Version).

“But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin” (Galatians 3:22 New Living Translation).

And the penalty for sin is death.

“When Adam sinned, the entire world was affected. Sin entered human experience, and death was the result. And so death followed this sin, casting its shadow over all humanity, because all have sinned” (Romans 5:12 The Passion Translation).

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23 New International Version).

But the good news is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for us and pay the penalty for our sins.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 English Standard Version).

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 English Standard Version).

To be saved—to receive eternal life—we need to call on the Name of the Lord Jesus.

“And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
(Acts 2:21 English Standard Version).

“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. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, ‘Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.’ . . . For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’ ” (Romans 10:9–11, 13 English Standard Version).

Are you ready to experience the reality of God’s love?

If so, pray this simple prayer from your heart:

God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I have sinned and fallen short of Your glory. I ask You to forgive me and cleanse me from all my sins. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to die for me and pay the penalty for everything I’ve ever done wrong.

Jesus, I ask You to be my Savior and Lord. Right now, I receive everlasting life. Thank You for
saving me!
