What is Salvation?
Salvation is God’s way of providing his people deliverance from sin and spiritual death through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, the concept of salvation is rooted in Israel’s deliverance from Egypt in the Book of Exodus.
The New Testament reveals the source of salvation in Jesus Christ. By faith in Jesus Christ, believers are saved from God’s judgment of sin and its consequence—which is eternal death.
When Adam and Eve rebelled, man was separated from God through sin. God’s holiness required payment (atonement) for sin, which was (and still is) eternal death. Our death is not sufficient to cover the payment for sin. Only a perfect, spotless sacrifice, offered in just the right way, can pay for our sin. Jesus, the perfect God-man, came to offer the pure, complete and everlasting sacrifice to remove, atone, and make eternal payment for sin. Why? Because God loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us.
How to Have Assurance of Salvation
If you’ve felt the “tug” of God on your heart, you can have the assurance of salvation. By becoming a Christian, you will take one of the most important steps in your life on earth and begin an adventure unlike any other. The call to salvation begins with God. He initiates it by wooing or drawing us to come to Him:
The Road To Salvation (Romans Road) clearly defines:
Who needs salvation.
Why we need salvation.
How God provides salvation.
How we receive salvation.
The results of salvation.
Romans Road To Salvation
Everyone needs salvation because we have all sinned.
Romans 3:10-12, and 23
As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous—not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” … For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (NLT)
The price (or consequence) of sin is death.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
Jesus Christ died for our sins. He paid the price for our death.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)
We receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
Romans 10:9-10, and 13
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. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved … For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NLT)
Salvation through Jesus Christ brings us into a relationship of peace with God.
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
Responding to Romans Road
If you believe Romans Road leads to the path of truth, you can respond by receiving God’s free gift of salvation today. Here’s how to take a personal journey down Romans Road:
Admit you are a sinner
Understand that as a sinner, you deserve death.
Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from sin and death.
Repent by turning from your old life of sin to a new life in Christ.
Receive, through faith in Jesus Christ, his free gift of salvation.
A Prayer of Salvation
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
Finding A Local Church Body
Now a critical next step is that you get plugged into a local church. We realize that everyone has different preferences in types and styles of churches. Certainly there is a solid Bible believing church in your area that you can connect with.
Our 3 Step Process
Learn all you can about the ministry by reviewing the website, watch our videos, review our blogs, and our facebook page, and see what others are saying.
Decide if you would like to participate in the ministry and purchase your “Crowned by the King” necklaces and a guide about the ministry.
When you receive your necklaces, review the “Crowned By the King Ministry” guide. Then, start wearing and sharing the ministry with others.
It’s really that easy, just wear your necklace and pray for an opportunity to give it away, and share the love of Christ with someone (a mom, sister, daughter, or a complete stranger).
Once I receive my necklaces, what do I do with them?
Below are A few ways you can participate in the ministry.
This is the most popular of the Crowned Moments. This is when someone compliments you on your “Crowned By The King” necklace and as a part of the ministry you give them your necklace and share the love of Christ with them. This does happen often, so be ready!!
This is when you know someone who may be needing some hope. It may be at a store, in a restaurant, or even at work. Give them your “Crowned by the King” necklace, share the love of God with them, and watch as God moves and their hope is restored. You may even have a scripture in mind to share with them. (Ex. Isaiah 40:31, Romans 12:12, I Corinthians 15:19 or Heb 11:1)
The Friend or Family Member
This is when you buy a necklace for someone you care about; maybe a friend, mom, or daughter. This provides a great opportunity for you to share how much they mean to you, and how much God loves them. Some women have even created a “Crowned Moment” ceremony and added personal scriptures to share. There is nothing more special than giving these necklaces to your sister, mom, or daughters to remind them of God’s love for them.
Women's Event or Retreat
This provides a great opportunity to share the ministry with a group of ladies from your Sunday School Class, Small Group, or at a women’s event or retreat. We have set up group pricing for larger orders. If you are interested in creating a “Crowned By the King Event”, please email us ( firstname.lastname@example.org) instead of ordering through our shopping cart system.
With each of the above opportunities, make sure you give them the velour bag which is included in the kit. The bag has a card attached with our website so they too can get involved in spreading the love of Christ to other women.
