The Plan of Salvation

  1. We must hear the gospel.
    •  “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
    • "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created." (Revelation 4:11).
    • “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (Eph. 4:6)
  2. We must believe.
    • ”He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36)
    •  “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” ( 2 Tim. 3:16,17)
    •  “Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” ( Matt. 16:16)
  3. We must repent.
    • “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this by raising him from the dead.” ( Acts 17:30,31)
    •  “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
  4. We must confess.
    • “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”(Rom. 10:10)
    • "For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:13).
  5. We must be immersed.
    •  “Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)
    •  “There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism…” (1 Pet. 3:21)
    •  Sinners can be Redeemed by the Blood of Christ. (1 Pet. 1:18-21)
  6. We must continue to live faithfully.
    • “Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.” (Phil. 1:27)
    • "...be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." (Rev 2:10)
