How can I know that I have eternal life?


1 John 5:13 - "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life..."


1. Realize everyone is a sinner!

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23


2. Realize the penalty for sin!

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23


3. Realize God Loves You and paid the penalty for sin already!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

“But God commendeth his love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8


4. Finally, Pray and ask Jesus Christ to be your personal Saviour!

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

“...and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37


Prayer: “Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I ask You to forgive me of my sins and save my soul. I understand I can do nothing to save myself. I right now call upon You, Lord Jesus, to be my personal Saviour. I, by faith, believe You died on the cross, You were buried in the tomb, and You rose again the third day to give all who would believe upon you eternal life. Thank You for loving me enough to die for me. Thank You for saving me. Help me Lord to live the rest of my life for You. Amen!”


If you have prayed this prayer or have questions regarding salvation, please give us a call.  We would love to answer any questions you may have and rejoice with you in your decision to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour.
