Knowing your sins are forgiven and you are ready for heaven is as simple as the following steps:
A. Admit you have sinned…
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).
B. Believe in Jesus…
“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” (John 3:16).
C. Confess and leave your sin…
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
You might want to use the following prayer as a guide:
Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I’m a sinner, and I’m sorry for my sin. Thank You for dying on the Cross for me. Please forgive me of my sin, and accept me as Your child. I desire to live for You, Jesus. Amen.
Congratulations on becoming a part of God’s forever family. Obviously this is only a first step. Should you like to know more about your decision please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 503-493-1301.
