Being Saved… What Does It Mean?

To be Saved, one must accept Jesus as their personal Savior, repent of their sin, and be Baptized (click here for more information).

christian33_300x300Being Saved allows us to have peace within ourselves but more importantly – with God. Being Saved will free us from the chaos in our life in exchange for His peace that surpasses all understanding. Being “Saved” is of preeminent importance, and it’s the most important decision you will ever make.

In short, being Saved means agreeing with the Bible and admitting to God that you are a sinner, do not meet God’s standard of goodness, and that nothing you do will be good enough on your own. In addition, it means admitting that Jesus is the Messiah that died and payed the penalty for your sins… That he rose from the dead and you confess and receive Him as your Lord and Savior.

Being Saved determines whether or not we will know Jesus, live according to His Word, and spend eternity with Him… Or that we will spend eternity in suffering, painfully separate from God’s glory.

Being Saved includes knowing the debt we owe God because of sin has been paid in full by Jesus on the cross. Jesus came to pay a debt He did not owe, for those who owed a debt they could not pay.

We cannot add or subtract from our state of being Saved because the work done to Save us was completed by Jesus when he died on the cross. Being Saved means that in Christ the floodgates of God’s promises are opened to us.
