GOD IS JUST A PRAYER AWAY RADIO BROADCAST

The NEW TESTAMENT PLAN of SALVATION And the Church the Body of Christ.
To be saved, I must BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ, John 3:16; Acts 16:31; Heb. 11:6.
But faith without works is dead. James 2:14, 17, 26. FAITH AND WORKS save. James 2:22, 24; Acts 18:8; Acts 8:12, 37.
To be saved, I must REPENT. Luke 13:3, 5; Luke 15:7; Acts 2:38; Acts 17:30; II Peter 3:9. What is repentance? I Peter 3:11; II Cor. 7:10; Luke 15:17-20.
To be saved I must CONFESS. Matt. 10:32, 33; Mark 8:38; I Timothy 6:12, 13; I John 4:15; Romans 10:9, 10; Acts 8:36, 37.
To be saved, I must be BAPTIZED. Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:16; John 3:5; Acts 2:38; Acts 16:33; Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4-6; Colossians 2:12; I Peter 3:21; Acts 22:16; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 4:5.
The Church IS Christ's Body. To be SAVED We MUST be a part of His Body. He Himself IS the Head over it. Matt. 16:18; Acts 2:47; Acts 20:28; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22, 23; Romans 12:5; I Cor. 12:27; Colossians 1:23; Ephesians 4:15; Hebrews 12:23.
Our Obedience in faith, repentance, confession and baptism also makes us a member of the body of Christ, both happen simultaneously.
When we obey Christ and become a part of His body, we receive the GIFT, not the baptism of the HOLY SPIRIT. John 3:5; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:9; I Cor. 3:16; Romans 8:16; Galatians 4:6; Romans 8:11.
To remain Spiritually alive, we MUST observe the LORD'S SUPPER. John 6:53-58; Acts 2:42; Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 11:23-30.
If we are FAITHFUL until DEATH, then the Lord will take us to Himself. II Peter 1:5-12; Matt. 24:13; Rev. 2:10, 26, 27; Rev. 3:10, 21.
