Assurance of Salvation



Do you doubt your salvation? Do you know where you will spend eternity? You can know for sure! If you have doubts read through these passages of Scripture and seek out your Pastor or trusted friend to help you walk through this outline and to get the assurance you are needing.


God’s Purpose

• His word tells us we can know for sure (I John 5:12-13).

• He wants us to have joy (John 15:10-11).


Our Need

Doubts are not uncommon.

• Assurance might not have been explained to you.

• You may have neglected prayer, Bible study, fellowship with other Christians, church attendance.

• You may have allowed sin to get a hold in you life.

• You may have inadequate or erroneous understanding of God and the life He has for you.

• You may be experiencing problems that are cause you to doubt.


God’s Provision

• God has promised to complete His work in you (Phil 1:6).

• Jesus promised us eternal life (John 5:24).

• Jesus said no one can take us out of his hand (John 10:28; I Peter 1:5).

• The Holy Spirit tells us we are His (Rom. 8:16).


Our Response

We receive God’s assurance by faith. We must not trust feelings we must trust God and His promises.

• Confess all known sin (I John 1:9)

• Commit yourself to His control (Rom. 10:9-10).

• Claim God’s salvation by faith (II Tim. 1:12)

• Obey God’s commands (John 14:21; 15:10).

My Commitment

Pray a prayer like this…

“Father, I place my complete faith in you: I confess to you any sin (name them); I commit myself to the Lordship of Jesus (control); I claim your promise of assurance; and I will live in obedience to your commands. Thank you for the assurance of salvation. Amen”


Eternal Security Questions to consider:


1. What is the promise that we can claim in John 6:37?

2. From John 10:27-29 you should understand no man can cause you to lose your salvation.  Why is this?

3. We cannot do anything ourselves that would cause us to lose our salvation.  What can we learn from the following verses to support this?

            A. Eph 2:8-9-

            B. Galatians 3:10 & James 2:10-

            C. 2 Timothy 1:12-

            D. Galatians 2:21-

4. Is there anything at all that can separate us from the love of God?

5. Romans 8:38-39 shows us we have received the love of God in ________________________________?

6. Your salvation is secure because of your new relationship to God.

            A. John 1:12-13

            B. 1 John 5:11-13

            C. Ephesians 1:13, 4:30


7. What if I don’t feel saved?

            A. 1 John 3:20

            B. 1 John 4:18

            C. Titus 1:2

           D. 1 John 2:25

8. Have you ever doubted your salvation?  If so how did you overcome it?

After months of repair our baptistery is ready for use.  Why not follow the Lord in believer’s baptism? What is Baptism?

Baptism is identifying with Christ and His Church

The Motive for Baptism: Why Should You be Baptized?

Baptism is necessary for Christian obedience, and is vital to growth in your Christian walk. We are encouraged to keep Christ’s commandments through baptism:

                  1. By the example of Christ.

                  2. By the encouragement of New Testament believers.
                        (Acts 8:26-38; 10:47-48; and 16:25-34)

                  3. By the explanation of Scripture. (Romans 6:4-5)

The Method of Baptism: How Should You be Baptized?

Baptism can be confusing for some, but the Bible tells us the method of baptism clearly. It is a picture of our identification with Christ through His death, burial, and resurrection.

The word “baptize” in the New Testament translates to mean “immerse,” “submerge,” or “to place under.” Scripture says that Jesus “came up out of the water” when He was baptized.

The Meaning of Baptism: Who Should be Baptized?

                  1. Baptism is a public declaration of the believer’s personal faith in Christ.

                  2. Baptism is a perfect illustration of what Christ did for sinners on the cross through His death, burial, and resurrection.

                  3. Baptism is a personal identification between Christ and His church.

The Moment of Baptism: When Should You be Baptized?

You should be baptized immediately following your salvation experience as a new believer. This is according to the pattern found in Acts 2:41.

Our prayer is that God will make this act of obedience a lasting memory and a powerful testimony to others as you follow Christ in believer’s baptism.

Bro. James
