 The PROCESS 
 of Salvation 

*Text: Acts 10:43-47, 11:15-17, 15:7-11, 16:30-33;
                 
Ephesians 1:13-14

  • First, the person must hear the Gospel (Acts 10:44, Eph 1:13)

  • Second, the person must believe on the message of the Gospel (Acts 10:43, 11:17, 16:31; Eph 1:13)

  • Third, when a person believes, God gives Him or her His Holy Spirit automatically as a result (Acts 10:43-44, 11:15-17, 15:8; Eph 1:13-14)

  • Fourth, when a person has believed and given evidence of their salvation through mouth confession and the presence & work of the Holy Spirit in their life, they are then candidates and are to be baptized in water in Jesus name (Acts 8:36-38, 16:33; 10:45-47; Matthew 28:18-20)

 How we are to 
 ADMINISTER Salvation 

Text: Acts 8:4-40

  • Preach the Gospel, preach Jesus (Acts 8:5, 35).

  • Believe on the Gospel and give evidence through mouth confession (Acts 8:13, 37)

  • As a result then Baptize them in Jesus’ name (Acts 8:12, 13, 38).

  • Finally, lay hands on them to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for ministry outreach and release (Acts 1:8, 8:15-17).

 


 JESUS 
 The Only Way To God 

John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, "I-AM (ejgwv eijmi) the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me."

John 10:1, 9 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.... Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.... If anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture."

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved."

 JESUS’ SALVATION Is 
 Through HIS BLOOD 

Romans 5:8-10 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son much more,having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life."

Ephesians 1:7 "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace."

1 John 1:7 "The blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin."

Revelation 1:5 "To Him who loves us, and released us from our sins by His blood."

1 Peter 1:18-19 "Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ."

 Salvation Is Received 
 Through FAITH ALONE 

Ephesians 2:8-9 "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, that no one should boast."

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

Romans 3:28 "For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law."

Acts 10:43-44 "‘Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through Jesus name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.’ While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message."

Acts 11:15-17 "And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, just as He did upon us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, how He used to say, ‘John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ If God therefore gave to them the same gift as He gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God’s way?"

Acts 15:7-11 "Brethren, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the Gospel and believe. And God, who knows-the-heart, bore witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He also did to us; and He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith. . . . But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are."

Acts 16:30-31 "And after he brought them out, he said, ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.’"

Ephesians 1:13-14 "In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory."

Acts 15:8-9, 11 "And God, who knows-the-heart, bore witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He also did to us; and He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith. . . .

Titus 3:4-7  "He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that being justified by His grace we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."

 Jesus' Salvation Is 
  Available to  ALL 

1 Timothy 2:1-6 "First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of ALL MEN, for kings and ALL who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, WHO DESIRES ALL MEN TO BE SAVED and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom FOR ALL, the testimony borne at the proper time."

Romans 3:22 "Even the righteousness of God THROUGH FAITH in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction."

 REPENTANCE 
 Necessary For Salvation

Hebrews 10:26-27 "For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries."

Luke 19:8-9 "And Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, ‘Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham.’"

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, lewdness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

 You Must Be 
 BORN-AGAIN

 of Salvation

What prevents me from being baptized?’ And Philip said, ‘If you believe with all your heart, you may.’ And he answered and said, ‘I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.’ And he ordered the chariot to stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch; and he baptized him.’"

Acts 16:33  "And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their wounds and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household."

Acts 10:45-47  "And all the circumcised believers who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out upon the Gentiles also. For they were hearing them speaking with tongues and exalting God. Then Peter answered, ‘Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?’"

Matthew 28:18-20  "And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’"
