The Roman Road to Salvation
The ROMAN ROAD....is a pathway you are invited to walk.
It is a group of Bible verses from the book of Romans in the New Testament. As you read these verses you will discover how to be saved (how to become a Christian).
Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
We all have sin in our hearts. We all were born with sin.
We were born under the power of sin’s control.
- Admit that you are a sinner.
Romans 6:23a – “...The wages of sin is death...”
Sin has an ending. It results in death. We all face physical death, which is a result of sin. But a worse death is spiritual death that alienates us from God and will last for all eternity. The Bible teaches that there is a place called hell where lost people will be in torment forever. It is the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain.
- Understand that you deserve death for your sin.
Romans 6:23b – “...But the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Salvation is a free gift from God to you! You can't
earn this gift, but you must reach out and receive it.
- Ask God to forgive you and save you.
Romans 5:8 – “God demonstrates His own love for us, in
that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!”
When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin’s penalty. He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!
- Give your life to God... His love poured out in Jesus on the cross is your only hope to have forgiveness and change. His love bought you out of being a slave to sin. His love is what saves you - not religion or church membership. God loves you!
Romans 10:13 – “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!”
- Call out to God in the name of Jesus!
Romans 10:9-10 – “…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.
- If you know that God is knocking on your heart's door,
ask Him to come into your heart.
Revelation 3:20a – “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
- Is Jesus knocking on your heart’s door?
Believe in Him.
Ask Him to come in to your heart by faith, and ask Him to reveal Himself to you.
Open the Bible to the Gospel of John and read what God says about Jesus, about you, and about being born again. God will help you. He loves you.
You need to be a part of a local church where
God's Word is preached. The Bible says that we are to desire
God's Word like a newborn baby desires mother’s milk.
Aren't you hungry to know the truth?
You are welcome to come to Fern Creek Baptist Church.
Join us as we grow in Christ together.
Water baptism is one of the ways you first show that you have been joined
to Jesus. This is an action, and actions will not save you. However,
it is an act of obedience and a symbol of commitment.
The symbolism is this:
When you go down in the water you show that
you have been crucified and buried with Him.
And when you come up out of the water you show that
you have been raised to walk with Him in newness of life.
(See Romans chapter 6.)
You have been born again.
(See John chapter 3.)
Your body has become God's temple.
Your heart is where He lives.
Forgiveness is yours in Jesus.
And you belong to Him.
You were sin’s slave.
You are a child of GOD!
“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become
children of God, even to those who believe in His name!”
