The Gospel of Jesus Christ

               The Way of Salvation

    A.  Acknowledge yourself as a sinner.

              "For all have sinned,  and come short
               of the glory of God;"  (Romans 3:23)
              "For the wages of sin is death;  but
               the gift of God is eternal life through
               Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
The heart is deceitful above all things,
               and desperately wicked:  who can
               know it?"  (Jeremiah 17:9)

             "The wicked are estranged from the womb:
              they go astray as soon as they be born,
              speaking lies."  
(Psalms 58:3)

              "All we like sheep have gone astray;  we
               have turned every one to his own way;
               and the LORD hath laid on him the
               iniquity of us all."  
(Isaiah 53:6)

              "For whosoever shall keep the whole law,
               and yet offend in one
point,  he is guilty
               of all."  
(James 2:10)

              "As it is written,  There is none righteous,
               no, not one:   
There is none that understandeth,
               there is none that seeketh after God.  
They are
               all gone out of the way,  they are together
               become unprofitable;  there is none that
               doeth good,  no,  not one."  
(Romans 3:10-12)

              "Jesus answered and said unto him,  Verily,
               verily,  I say unto thee,  Except a man be
               born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
  (John 3:3)

              "Neither is there salvation in any other:  for
               there is none other name under heaven given
               among men,  whereby we must be saved."
  (Acts 4:12)

    B.  Believe in Christ.

             "But God commendeth His love toward us,  in that,
              while we were yet sinners,  Christ died for us."
(Romans 5:8)

           "For God so loved the world,  that He gave His
               only begotten Son,  that whosoever believeth
               in Him should not perish,  but have everlasting
(John 3:16)

           "And they said,  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
               and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
(Acts 16:31)

           "I came not to call the righteous,  but sinners
               to repentance."  
(Luke 5:32)

           "I tell you,  Nay:  but,  except ye repent,  ye shall
               all likewise perish."  
(Luke 13:3)

           "Or despisest thou the riches of His goodness and
               forbearance and longsuffering;  not knowing that
               the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"
(Romans 2:4)

           "But these are written,  that ye might believe that
               Jesus is the Christ,  the Son of God;  and that
               believing ye might have life through His name."
(John 20:31)

           "But without faith it is impossible to please Him:
               for he that cometh to God must believe that He is,
that He is a rewarder of them that diligently
               seek Him."  
(Hebrews 11:6)

           "So then faith cometh by hearing,  and hearing by
               the word of God."  
(Romans 10:17)

           "To Him give all the prophets witness,  that through
               His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive
               remission of sins."  
(Acts 10:43)

    C.  Confess Jesus Christ as Savior

            "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
                shall be saved."  
(Romans 10:13)

            "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)

            "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
                and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
(Romans 10:10)

            "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God,
                God dwelleth in him,  and he in God."  
(1 John 4:15)

            "And many that believed came,  and confessed,  and
                shewed their deeds."  
(Acts 19:18)

            "If we confess our sins,  He is faithful and just to
                forgive us
our sins,  and to cleanse us from all
(1 John 1:9)

            "These things have I written unto you that believe
                on the name of the Son of God;  that ye may know
                that ye have eternal life,  and that ye may believe
                on the name of the Son of God."  
(1 John 5:13)

            "For by grace are ye saved through faith;  and that
                not of yourselves:  
it is the gift of God:  Not of works,
                lest any man should boast."  
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

            "And I give unto them eternal life;  and they shall
                never perish,  neither shall any
man pluck them
                out of My hand.  
My Father, which gave them Me,
                is greater than all;  and no
man is able to pluck them
                out of my Father's hand."  
(John 10:28-29)
