Helping our churches to fulfill the Great Commission

F.A.I.T.H.

Plan of Salvation
"Thou has made us for Thyself, and the heart of man is restless until it finds its rest in Thee." --St. Augustine
 
F is for Forgiveness.
   We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness. (Ephesians 1:7)
A is for Available.
   Forgiveness is available for all. (John 3:16) But not automatic. (Matthew 7:21)
I is for Impossible.
   It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.
   * Because of who He is: God is loving and just. His judgement is against sin. (James 2:13)
   * Because of who we are: Every person is a sinner. (Romans 3:23)
     But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin?
T is for Turn.
   Turn means repent from sin and self. (Luke 13:3)
   Turn to Someone; trust Christ only. (Romans 10:9)
H is for Heaven.
   Heaven is eternal life. (John 10:10)(John 14:3) How? How can a person have God's
   forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? By trusting
   in Christ and asking Him for forgiveness.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have displeased You in many ways. I believe You died for my sin and only through faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven. I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord. From this day on, I will follow You by living a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving and forgiving me.
