Salvation and New Christian Resources
The only way to truly be free is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior!
Why can I not be truly free without help?
When God created the world, everything was perfect; there wasn’t even sin in the world. God created man, then woman to communicate with, and to enjoy the earth. God communicated with them and they had a great relationship. However, that perfect world did not last, because the enemy (the devil), came and tempted man and woman, and unfortunately they both were deceived and chose to sin. That sin in the garden brought sin into the world, and because of that sin, we now live in a broken, messed up world.
through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned
- No one is sinless. We have all sinned, and that sin separates us from God
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
- Sin causes separation from God and spiritual death, and if it’s not corrected before our physical death, we remain separated from God and go to hell for eternity.
For the wages of sin is death
- The great news is that we don’t have to remain separated from God, die spiritually or go to hell; because God made a way by sending His one and only son, Jesus, to make a way where there was no other way. Jesus lived a sinless life, then was bruised, beaten, and crucified on a cross, to give us the opportunity to be rejoined with God, and have eternal life for all eternity.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
- Jesus is the only way to be rejoined with God, and have eternal life.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
“if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
CONGRATULATIONS… you are now free!
If you just made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are now free. You may not always feel like it, but from this day forward, you are a New Creation.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
And now it’s time to start living like a New Creation.
Turn away from those things that are dragging you down, and begin to live a life without regrets. Find a good church home that teaches the true gospel of Jesus Christ!

Next, if you don’t have a Bible get one, and start reading. The Bible is the living Word of God. Reading the Bible is important for guiding you, and it is one way to communicate with God, the other way being prayer.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
