How to be saved

The Romans Road to salvation is a way of explaining the good news of salvation using verses from the Book of Romans. It is a simple yet powerful method of explaining why we need salvation, how God provided salvation, how we can receive salvation, and what are the results of salvation.

The Romans Road to Salvation

Everyone has sinned

We all have done things that displease God.
Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

The result of sin is death

The consequence of our disobedience against God is spiritual death and eternal separation from God.

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

God sent his Son to save us from our sins

Although we deserve death because of our sinful disobedience, God provided an answer to the sin and spiritual death we face.

Romans 5:8 – But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Salvation is available to everyone

Salvation from our sins is available through God’s Son, Jesus.

Romans 10:9 – That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:13 – For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

The result of salvation is a relationship with God

This includes peace (Romans 8:1) and security (Romans 8:38-39).

Romans 5:1 – Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.

Pray to receive God's forgiveness from sin

Dear God, I realize I am a sinner deserving of death. I understand you provided salvation for me through your son, Jesus. I place my faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose from the dead, and offers me the gift of eternal life. I ask you to forgive me of my sins and help me to live for you. Thank you for accepting me, forgiving my sins, and giving me eternal life.” Amen.
