Himself as the Cornerstone...                        Ephesians 2:20 Cornerstone Christian Church

     Plan of Salvation


We need to realize that we are all sinners in need of salvation.

          Romans 3:23     “...for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

          Romans 6:23     “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus Our Lord.”

          Ephesians 2:8   “For it by GRACE you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of GOD.”


1.  BELIEVE

        ... Over 90% of Americans believe that there is a God.  But we also know that America is NOT serving God.

        James 2:19   “You believe that there is a God.  Good!  Even the demons believe that - and shudder.

        John 3:16     “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.”


2.  CONFESS

        Romans 10:9-10  “That if you confess with your MOUTH, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you

                                     will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are

                                     saved.”

         A.  Privately:  Between You and God

                    1 John 1:9   “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

         B.  Publicly:  Before Man

                   Matthew 10:32  “Whoever acknowledges me before man, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.”

         C.  Daily:  Prayer Time


3.  REPENT

         Greek meaning - To CHANGE your MIND and your PURPOSE in Life.

          Acts 2:1-41


4.  BAPTISM

         Greek word for BAPTISM - BAPTIZO - which means to be immersed in water.

         BAPTISM is symbolic of Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection.

         Matthew 3:13-17

        Mark 16:16   “Whoever believes in baptized will be saved and whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

        Romans 6:3-4  “Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were therefore buried

                                 with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we

                                 too may live a new life.”

        Galatians 2:20  “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in

                                  the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself to me.  

 


       

                          “Lord, I know I am a sinner and I am truly sorry for my sin. I ask for your forgiveness. I recognize that

               Jesus died for me and paid the price for my sin. Knowing I am not worthy, I accept Your gift and ask You to

               come into my heart and take control of my life right now. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.”

     

      If you have just said this prayer and were sincere, then CONGRATULATIONS!! Christ now lives in your heart and  

      you ARE a born-again child of God. Your decision to receive Christ also means that you are going to Heaven one

      day. That’s a lot to be thankful for! Now, you need to take some practical steps to grow strong spiritually: be baptized,

      read the Bible, pray and go to church. If you have a friend or family member who you know is a Christian, call them now

      and tell them the news! Or, go to the contact page on this website and call our preacher, Mike Hughes, or any of the

      other church members listed there. We will give you all the spiritual help and guidance we can.
