Questions & Answers
How do I get to Heaven from Sulphur?
 
A:  Admit that you are a sinner and that you are willing to turn away from sin.  "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23  "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord."  Acts 3:19
B:  Believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again from the dead.  "...that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and He was buried, and He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."  I Corinthians 15:3-4
C:  Confess your belief in Jesus Christ.  The same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him.  "That 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."  Romans 10:9  "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  Romans 10:13
 
Model Prayer
     
   "God, I now admit that I am a sinner.  I believe that You sent Jesus,
who died on the cross and rose from the dead paying the penalty for my sins.
I am asking that You forgive me of my sin and I receive Your gift of eternal life.
It is in Jesus' name that I ask for this gift.  Amen."
 
Now that you have received Him as your personal Lord and Savior, you would then follow Him in Believer's Baptism.  Our staff is available to tell you more during the Sunday invitation.
