welcome to trinity church!

1. Recognize that God pursues you with love and offers salvation.

  • His love includes you.

    • “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

  • He has new life for you.

    • "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." (John 10:10)


2. Recognize that sin separates you from God and others.

  • "Sin" is walking our own way in rebellion against God's will. When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.

  • Everyone has sinned.

    • "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," (Romans 3:23).

  • Sin brings death
    • "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
  • Our own efforts cannot save us. As sinners we futilely try to find life's true meaning in the wrong ways and places.

    • "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9).


3. Recognize that Jesus Christ died and rose again for our sins.

  • Jesus Christ died in our place.

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

  • He is the way to new life.

    • "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come." (2 Corinthians 5:17).

  • He gives inner peace.

    • "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ," (Romans 5:1).

  • He gives freedom.

    • "So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed." (John 8:36).

  • He gives eternal life.

    • "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23).


4. You must repent and ask God for forgiveness.

  • Admit and confess your sins to God.

    • "He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion." (Proverbs 28:13).

  • Repentance means

    • To acknowledge your sins.

    • To be sorry for your sins.

    • To confess your sins.

    • To be willing to forsake your sins.

    • To have your life changed by Christ.

  • Forgiveness is promised.

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


5. Place your trust in Christ and receive Him as your Savior.

  • Christ is ready.

    • "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me." (Revelation 3:20).

  • You can receive Jesus Christ now.

    • "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name," (John 1:12).


6. Will you pray this prayer?

Lord Jesus, I want to have life. I know that I have sinned. I need Your forgiveness and pardon. I believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I now accept You as my personal Savior. I will forsake my sinful life. I know that Your grace and power will enable me to live for You. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life.
