For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23 NAS

God's Gift For You
A Christian has a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, tries to obey Him in all things, and draws on His strength to help with problems. Christianity is really a relationship.
God made us for Himself and our souls are restless until they find rest in Him. The answer to your search is trusting Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of your life. To become a Christian, you need to know the basic facts from the Bible below.
|| The tract to the left is a simple, graphic explanation of the plan of salvation. More details with additional scripture references follow below:
God's Simple Plan of Salvation
There is but one way to heaven and that is by God's grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
There are many places in the Bible where one can be shown how to be saved. We have chosen to use what is commonly called the "Romans Road." The Romans Road is an explanation of the plan of salvation taken from throughout the book of Romans. We ask that you please read and consider these things as they apply to your life. As you read, ask yourself the question, "If I died right now, would I go to heaven?" The answer to this question carries an eternal impact.
The First Stop
Your first move toward a saving knowledge of Christ is to realize that you have sinned.
"As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one." Romans 3:10
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
The Second Stop
All sin has a penalty. The penalty for your sin is the same as the penalty for any sin. This penalty for sin (or price that must be paid), is clearly given in the Scripture. Pay particular attention to the first part of this verse.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
The Third Stop
The penalty for sin must be paid. Did you know that the penalty has already been paid? That is good news for us! Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin when He bled and died on the Cross of Calvary.
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
The Fourth Stop
The payment Jesus Christ made on the Cross is worthless to you unless you turn from your sin and trust Him. This payment is a gift offered freely to all who would receive it, but like any gift, it must be received.
Now pay particular attention to the second part of the verse from our second stop.
"... but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ or Lord." Romans 6:23
The Fifth Stop
You must receive the free gift of salvation. Just knowing that it exists does not save you from having to pay the penalty for your sin.
How can you receive this gift?
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans10:9
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
The Next Stop on the Road
This is where you take over. What will you do with Jesus Christ? Would you stop right now, be willing to give up your sin, and trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? It should be clear to you what your standing with Jesus is, and it should be clear what you can do about it. Please take this opportunity to trust Christ.
Trusting Christ is the beginning. After trusting Him, be obedient by following Christ in baptism and by uniting with a Bible-believing church. When you do, you will find that life truly does have purpose and meaning.
