Receiving Jesus As Savior and Lord will assure you a place in heaven. When you confess Jesus Christ with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, than you will be saved.

    If you wish to receive Jesus Christ into your life as your Savior say this simple prayer and mean it. "God, I am coming to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I have recognized my need for you. I realize that I am a sinner in need of a savior, and that is you Jesus. I believe you died on the cross for me and were raised from the dead by God. I believe you are the Lord and I am confessing you as my Lord. And now I am thanking you for saving me. I am a new person, born again of the spirit, thank you again Lord for saving me. In Jesus name Amen.
