John 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be

                born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.


 What do I have to do to be "Born Again"?

 Join a Church? 

 Live a "moral" life? 

 Be baptized? 

 Treat everyone right?  

 Do my best?


 The Bible tells us that none of these things will get you to Heaven! 

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His (God's) mercy He saved us . . ."   Titus 3:5

 If we could earn or work for our salvation, then Jesus would not have had to die on the cross for us.

   Will just "believing" in God get me to Heaven? 

 No! The Bible tells us, ". . . the devils also believe (in God) and tremble." James 2:19 

 Just knowing ABOUT God isn't enough. We must have a personal relationship with Him, so that we can KNOW God in a real way.


What do I need to do to go to Heaven?

1. Ask God to forgive you of all the evil things (sin) that you have done. 

    Because we sin we deserve to go to hell forever.  Hell is a terrible place of eternal

    tormenting fire and darkness (Matthew 25:46)

    Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

    Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through

         Jesus Christ our Lord.

  You have violated God's law and are guilty before Him.  There is nothing that you can do to work for your salvation.

   *** Be willing to turn from your sin to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Let Jesus remove the sin from your life.

   .

2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, because of your sin (wrong against God) and that He rose from the dead. 

  God loves you so much that He doesn't want to see you separated from Him forever, so He sent His Son (Jesus) to die on the cross in your place.  He took your punishment for you.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

  After dying in your place Jesus rose from the dead (three days later) and is alive today urging you to accept His free gift of salvation.

   .

3. Pray and ask God to forgive you and save your soul. 

 Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 .

 Dear God, I know I am a sinner.  I don't deserve eternal life.  Because of my sin I deserve Hell.  I am willing to turn from my sin to Jesus.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin, and that He rose again from the dead.  I accept His free gift of eternal life.  I am calling upon the name of the Lord to be saved right now.  In Jesus name, Amen.

  If you believe the message above and have just now trusted Jesus as your Savior we would love to hear of your decision.  Please let us know of your decision.

 *** To grow in your new relationship with Christ

   1) In prayer, thank Him for saving your soul.

   2) Tell someone about your decision

   3) Start reading the Bible everyday.   (King James Version)  begin in the book of "James"

   4) Find a Bible-believing Church.   (we recommend Mt. Zion Community Church if you

       live in our area)

    5) Pray and talk with God each day.
