SALVATION: THE KEY TO ETERNAL LIFE
Do you want the free gift of eternal life? Then you need to know Jesus Christ as your personal saviour. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
For you to receive the free gift of eternal life this requires you to decide to turn away from all sin and ask Jesus Christ to come into your life as you submit to Him.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
Taking this step is extremely simple yet extremely profound. You can have a life changing experience in a moment.
We invite you to say this salvation prayer:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe He was born of a virgin, that He died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins and to reconcile me to You Heavenly Father. I thank You that You give me the gift of eternal life and heal me.
I turn to You, Lord Jesus Christ away from all sin, the works of the world, the flesh and the devil. I confess You now as my Lord and Saviour. Come Holy Spirit and fill me now with Your love and power. I believe I have been saved, I am being saved and I will be saved. Heaven is my home. Praise God!”
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” (John 1:12).
If you have said that prayer with full belief, God will send His Holy Spirit to dwell in you. You should seek out a Christian church that believes the whole Bible and the power of the Holy Spirit. You will find fellowship there and grow in the knowledge of the Lord.
You should also be baptised in water as soon as possible. And you should seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which means that you will speak in tongues and always know the love and presence of God within you. (You can read more about this in my book, How to receive the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.)
If you live in New Zealand please check our meeting itinerary and see if we are holding a meeting in your region soon. It would be great to speak with you to find out the change that Jesus has made in your life since becoming a Christian.
Additionally if you live in Auckland we invite you to attend the weekly Tuesday healing and teaching meetings conducted by our sister organisation Charisma Christian Ministries. These are held at The Salvation Army Centre, 18 Allright Place, Mount Wellington, Auckland, 7pm every Tuesday night. At these meetings you will grow in your Christian faith, have opportunities to receive prayer and be encouraged by other believers.
Blessings and love in Jesus,
Bill and Kaylene Subritzky
