Do you believe in many roads to salvation?
When you think about establishing a relationship with God, what comes to mind?
Do you know what the Bible reveals on this subject? Notice what Jesus Christ Himself has to say: “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44)
God starts this relationship process and you must choose to accept or reject His calling when offered. If you accept, you have a definite process to follow that He clearly reveals in the Bible. What is that process?
1) After God calls you, repentance is the starting point in your relationship with Him. Without repentance, you are cut off from God.
2) After you repent, your next step is water baptism, a primary principle of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 6:1-2).
3) The next step on your road to eternal life is to receive God’s Holy Spirit, which comes through “laying on of hands,” as described in Hebrews 6:2.
If God is calling you, will you respond?
Inside the Bible Study aid ebook, The Road to Eternal Life, we will examine the Scriptures and look at the steps you must take to respond to God’s calling. Start your journey on the only road to eternal life and be part of the awesome future God has planned for you!

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:
“The Bible describes repentance as a profound realization of our sins and resulting sorrow that leads us to change our thoughts and actions (2 Corinthians 7:10).”
“To some, the change God wants in us can appear so overwhelming that repentance and conversion to God’s way of thinking seem impossible. And that’s the point. Without God’s help, they are impossible!”
“Overcoming our habitual sins and selfish nature does not happen instantly. It is a lifelong process, often involving great effort.”
“The symbolic meaning of baptism, then, is profound. It represents both forgiveness of sins and newness of life in Christ.”
“No matter what our background or past mistakes, when we genuinely repent and are baptized, God promises complete forgiveness.”
“Living God’s way must always remain our priority. We must continually “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matthew 6:33).”
