rebel against Him. The Bible calls this "sin." Romans 3:23
says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Yet God loves you and wants to save
you from sin, to offer you a new life of hope. John 10:10 says, "I
have come that you may have life, and have it to the full."
To give you this gift of salvation,
God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 says, "But
God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still
sinners, Christ died for us."
You receive this gift by faith alone.
Ephesians 2:8 says, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith
-- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works,
so that no one can boast."
Faith is a decision of your heart
demonstrated by the actions of your life. Romans 10:9 says, "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."

to find a pastor, Christian teacher, or Christian friend who can help you
learn to grow as a new Christian.
