How to be saved

Salvation is a gift by God.  It can not be bought.  It is not achieved in some ritual.  It does not have to happen in a church.  I was saved in my cruddy broken down apartment, with drug addicts and prostitutes as neighbors.  If God can be there, He can be anywhere!

Romans 10:9 of the Bible says “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”  There are no “Hail Marys” or donations to the Watchtower.  It has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with a relationship with God.  He sent His only son to die for us and redeem us of our sins.  He was ressurected on the third day, as proof that He has power over death itself.  If he can save someone like me, He can save anybody.

After you have believed on the Lord Jesus and repented of your sins, begin praying to God daily.  Study His word dilligently.  Seek out a Bible believing church.  BEWARE of false pastors and teachers, for they will try to draw you away from God.  This is what happened to me:  I was apart from God for over twenty years, but He came for me with a stroke.  He restored communion with me, and I thank Him for it!

You will be attacked for your faith.  I have been.  Some people are shocked that I would dare to not only not engage in the homosexual lifestyle, but that I would declare that salvation only comes through Jesus Christ.  Seek Him now, while you still can!
