God's Word is truth
   
What must I do to be saved?
 
Do you know God offers the free gift of eternal life to you through Jesus Christ? The Bible says, “That ye may know that ye have eternal life” (I John 5:13). Do you know for sure, without a doubt, that you are going to Heaven when you die? Here is how you can know.
All Have Sinned

Sin is anything we do that is wrong. According to Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  We come short of Heaven (the glory of God) because we have sinned.

The Penalty for Sin is Death in Hell

Whether you have sinned a little or a lot, there is only one punishment for sin, and that is eternity in the lake of fire. Revelation 20:14 states, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” According to Romans 6:23, the second death is what we have earned for our sin. This verse says, “For the wages of sin is death…”

Jesus Paid the Penalty for Sin

The good news is that Jesus paid our sin debt by His death, burial, and resurrection. Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” The free gift of eternal life is offered to all, however, the only way to receive it is by accepting Jesus Christ’s payment alone.

You Must Ask Jesus to Save You

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” (Romans 10:9). To receive the free gift of eternal life, all you must do is make a decision to ask Jesus to save you. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13). If you would be willing to accept Christ’s payment for your sin, you can do so by praying this prayer, or one similar to it:

Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner.  I know there is a price for sin.  I believe that You died and rose again to pay that price for me.  I now make the decision to place my trust in You alone to be my Saviour.  Amen.

 

 

Bible Study

Bible Study is essential to our understanding of who God is.  In order to have a relationship with God, we must first come to know Him.  We come to know Him through the study of His Word.  Our lives become changed by the internalization of that knowledge through the working of the Holy Spirit, and we become the new creature that is described throughout Scripture. 

The transforming power of God parallels the depth of our understanding and our relationship to Him.  Without knowing Him we cannot become that which He intends us to be.  Scripture is the basis for all teaching and preaching at Calvary Baptist Church. 

Discipleship Class

We also provide a one-to-one Discipleship Class to anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible.  This covers the Old and New Testaments and takes 15 to 18 months to complete.  It is a great way for newcomers and those who want to know more about Scripture to become knowledgeable about biblical principles.
