In the Bible, Romans 10:9, 10 says “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.” There it is… the simplicity of the Gospel… the free Gift of God.
Pray this prayer, believing… “Jesus, forgive me my sins. I believe that you died for my sins on the cross, and that you were raised to life again by the Power of God, and you are alive now and forever more. I make you Lord of my life… wash me new… I thank you for my Salvation… I ask this in your name, the Precious Name of Jesus. Amen.” If you prayed this with a sincere heart, you are SAVED, and you are a Christian.
