Frequently Asked Questions
Why do christians say you have to be saved? Saved from What?
What they mean is:
The Bible teaches, You are a sinner (someone that is breaking Gods law), and until you accept that as true you are lost and on your way to Hell. But God has made a way for all people to be forgiven for breaking His law, and that way is to admit you are a sinner and to receive (believe in your heart that it’s true) what Jesus did when He took your place and died on the cross as the payment for your sin once and for all. In the book of Romans chapter 10 found in the Bible it says this:
9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth, one confesses and is saved. 1 1For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Call out to God (pray) and admit you have sinned and broken His law, tell him you accept that Jesus died to pay for your sins and rose again three days later as the bible says, and ask him to come into your life and forgive you and change you however he wants, Now thank Him and be sure and tell someone about your decision to follow Jesus from now on. tell them today.

Why Does God Want Us To Pray?
Prayer is the way God has made for us to communicate with Him.
Phil 3:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
When we ask for God’s help he is there for us, and when our prayers are answered our faith increases.
When our faith increases it becomes easier to pray knowing God hears us and answers our prayers. So it’s like this, Prayer + Answer = More Faith.
More Faith = More Prayer, and around and around it goes until you are fully Grown Up in the Lord.
Do I have to go to church to be saved?
No. But after you are saved you will want to grow closer to God and His family, it’s just a natural response to what has happened in your life, and it’s where you will learn more about him and be loved and appreciated for who you are. The Bible tells us once we are saved (born again by His Spirit) that all things in our lives become new and that includes a desire to be with others that have also been made new, and a good Bible believing, teaching church is where you will find them.
