sinners prayer

“Dear Jesus,

I come to you in need of you.  I accept you as my Lord and Savior today.  Please forgive me for all my sins I have committed in my life.  I believe in you.  Give me strength to grow and build my faith in you. 

In Jesus name.  Amen”

If you said this prayer, please share it with someone close to you and find a church that preaches God’s Word straight from the Bible.

God Bless You.

  1. How come you don’t preach the word straight fom the bible?

    Have you ever told someone when preaching the gospel they need to repent and be baptized as part of the Gospel message? Acts 2:38

    If not, then it is a different Gospel to that preached by the apostles.

    I have been a believer for 22years and never heard anyone preach baptism in any congregation I attended as part of the Gospel message.

    If we are not going to use the bibles Gospel from the book of Acts then it is open slather.

    Baptism was always part of the Gospel message, administered straightaway. Why the urgency?

    Act 2:41 Then they that GLADLY RECEIVED HIS WORD were BAPTIZED: and the SAME DAY there were added unto them about THREE THOUSAND souls.

    Act 8:12 But WHEN THEY BELIEVED Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, THEY WERE BAPTIZED, both men and women.

    Act 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

    Philip preached baptism in the Gospel.

    Act 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; WHAT DOES HINDER ME TO BE BAPTIZED ?
    Act 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

    Paul baptized

    Act 9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

    Cornelius and the Gentiles

    Act 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he COMMANDED THEM TO BE BAPTIZED in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

    Paul preached baptism TO Lydia

    Act 16:14 woman named Lydia, …: whose heart the Lord opened, that SHE ATTENDED UNTO THE THINGS WHICH WERE SPOKEN BY PAUL
    Act 16:15 And WHEN SHE WAS BAPTIZED, and her household, she besought us, saying, IF YOU HAVE JUDGED ME FAITHFUL TO THE LORD, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

    Paul preached baptism TO Philippian Jailer

    Act 16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

    All baptized the same hour the Gospel was preached read Rom 6:3-7 and you will understand that without baptism there is no gospel.

  2. While I agree that Baptism is important and is an outward confession of inward decision, it is not NECESSARY for salvation. The main example I will use is the sinner on the cross to the right of Jesus. He lived a fully sinful life, but never accepted Christ as His Lord and Savior until he saw Jesus on the cross next to him. He asked Jesus if he would remember him when he gets to His Kingdom and Jesus said “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise” Luke 23:42-43

    Based on this example, the sinner on the cross entered Heaven and he WAS NOT Baptised. Thus, the need for baptism is real, but NOT necessary for salvation.

    I believe that any person can accept Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior on their dying bed and still enter heaven.

    Then you get into the whole discussion about how much water should be used during a Baptism, full immersion or a splash on the head? Well, it doesn’t matter…because as long as someone who Believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is the MOST important thing PERIOD.

    We can agree to disagree as well. 🙂
