(Do the Following Self-Examination. Check a checkmark in each Blank if you know that Statement is True for you.)

"I have done in the Past, or I will do right Now, the following:"

___ I understand that I am a sinner, guilty of breaking God's perfect law. I have sinned against the one, true and living God, the Creator. [cf. Romans 3:10, 23]

___ From my heart I have genuinely Repented toward God. (I have turned to the Lord with a desire to know Him personally and to be able to fellowship with Him and for help for my lost spiritual condition. I no longer want to live a life dominated by sin. I want to know God's forgiveness, His mercy, His grace and to be given His gift of eternal life. I have a changed heart and mind concerning sin and concerning God.) [cf. Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 20:21]

___ I have heard and believed the true gospel of Jesus Christ. (I believe that Jesus loved me and that He died for my sins, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day, and that He was seen after His resurrection by many trustworthy eyewitnesses, and that He is alive. I believe that Jesus willingly shed His blood, gave His body and His life in payment for my sins.) [cf. John 3:16, 17; Mark 1:15; Acts 16:30, 31; I Corinthians 15:3-5; Ephesians 5:2; Romans 10:9, 10]

___ I truly believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. My trust and faith is in Him totally for my salvation and not in my religion, nor in any works that I have done in my body. (My faith and trust for salvation is Not in any of the following: Not in any church, Not in baptism, Not in trying to be good, Not in being religious, Not in being benevolent, etc.). [cf. John 20:30, 31; Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5]

___ I desire to know Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and I am willing to receive Him as my Saviour. ("Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6)). [cf. John 1:12, 13]

___ I have called upon the name of the Lord in prayer and have confessed to Him my guilt and have asked Him to forgive me of my sins and to save my soul. (Your prayer must be your own words from your own heart, words you really mean, not something you read or repeat from someone else.) [cf. Luke 18:13, 14; Luke 23:42, 43; Romans 10:13]

___ Jesus is precious to me. I love my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. [cf. I Peter 2:7; I Corinthians 16:22]

___ I now know that the Lord has saved my soul, that now I have been born spiritually of God and now I am a child of God. I know that the Spirit of Christ lives in me. God has given me His gift of eternal life. (Only You know this for sure.) [cf. Romans 8:9; II Corinthians 1:22, 13:5; I John 5:12, 13]

-Only those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, being born of God, will go to be with Him in heaven when they die. The only exceptions are babies, young children under the age of accountability and those who never develop mentally to the point of being accountable for their sins. When these die, they also go into heaven. [cf. John 1:12, 13; John 3:3, 7]
