We live in a time of much confusion about the things of God. His truth is being turned from on every hand, and is being replaced by man's opinion and wisdom. Millions of souls are being swept into false systems of religion. The only way of deliverance from these systems and from God's eternal judgment is found in God's Word.
However, we need more than just knowledge in our heads; to be saved requires faith in one's heart: "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10).
"What must I believe to be saved?"
This is answered by God's revelation of truth—the Bible—in Acts 16:31: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." To believe means to trust, put faith in, adhere to, receive. Personal trust in the Lord Jesus Christ eternally saves the soul. To believe God concerning His way of salvation includes many wonderful truths revealed in the Word of God. Here are a few of them:
Believe that the Bible is the Word of God. "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16).
Believe that we are sinners by nature and by practice. "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10). "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12).
Believe that God loves us. "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Believe that God gave His Son for us. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
Believe that Christ died for our sins. "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3).
Believe that Christ bore our sins on the cross. "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed" (1 Peter 2:24).
Believe that Christ rose from among the dead. "He was buried, and … rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:4).
Believe that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin. "The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). "Without shedding of blood is no remission" (Hebrews 9:22).
Believe that "Ye must be born again" (John 3:7). "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).
Believe that faith in Christ gives eternal life. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24).
Believe that all who reject Christ and His atoning sacrifice on the cross, will receive everlasting punishment. "But the fearful, and unbelieving … and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8).
The Invitation of Christ
"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). "Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out" (John 6:37).
Will You Accept the Invitation?
It is our earnest prayer that you will go to the Bible and see if these things are so, and believe them with all your heart. Only thus can one be spared the delusion of man's false religion and God's coming judgment. "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 16:25). When you believe on Christ, you will be saved forever. "I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand" (John 10:28).
"Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?" (John 11:26).

¿Qué Debo Creer Para Ser Salvo?
Vivimos tiempos de mucha confusión con respecto a las cosas de Dios. Su verdad es rechazada y reemplazada con opiniones y la sabiduría humana. Millones de almas son llevadas por los sistemas falsos de las religiones del hombre. La única manera de librarse de estos sistemas falsos y evitar el juicio eterno de Dios se encuentra en la Palabra de Dios.
Sin embargo, necesitamos más que mero conocimiento intelectual; para ser salvo se requiere fe de corazón: “Porque con el corazón se cree para justicia, pero con la boca se confiesa para salvación” (Romanos 10:10).
¿Qué debo hacer para ser salvo?
Esta pregunta tiene respuesta en la revelación divina de la verdad–la Biblia–en Hechos 16:31. “Cree en el Señor Jesucristo y serás salvo.” Creer significa confiar en, tener fe, adherir o recibir. La confianza personal puesta en el Señor Jesucristo resulta en la salvación eterna del alma. Ahora bien, creer a Dios es más que creer en Dios. Creer a Dios es creer lo que Él ha dicho, respecto a Su camino de salvación, e incluye muchas maravillosas verdades reveladas en la Palabra de Dios, de las cuales las siguientes sólo son una muestra:
Cree que la Biblia es la Palabra de Dios. “Toda la Escritura es inspirada por Dios, y útil para enseñar, para redargüir, para corregir, para instruir en justicia” (2 Timoteo 3:16).
Cree que eres pecador por naturaleza y en la práctica. “No hay justo, ni aun uno” (Romanos 3:10). “Por cuanto todos pecaron y están destituidos de la gloria de Dios” (Romanos 3:23). “Por tanto, como el pecado entró en el mundo por un hombre, y por el pecado la muerte, así la muerte pasó a todos los hombres, por cuanto todos pecaron” (Romanos 5:12).
Cree que Dios nos ama. “Mas Dios muestra su amor para con nosotros, en que siendo aún pecadores, Cristo murió por nosotros” (Romanos 5:8).
Cree que Dios entregó a Su Hijo por nosotros. “Porque de tal manera amó Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Hijo unigénito, para que todo aquel que en él cree, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna” (Juan 3:16).
Cree que Jesucristo murió por tus pecados: “Cristo murió por nuestros pecados, conforme a las Escrituras” (1 Corintios 15:3).
Cree que Cristo llevó tus pecados cuando murió en la cruz. “Quien llevó él mismo nuestros pecados en su cuerpo sobre el madero, para que nosotros, estando muertos a los pecados, vivamos a la justicia; y por cuya herida fuisteis sanados” (1 Pedro 2:24).
Cree que Cristo resucitó de los muertos. “Y que fue sepultado, y que resucitó al tercer día, conforme a las Escrituras” (1 Corintios 15:4).
Cree que la sangre de Jesucristo te limpia de todo pecado. “La sangre de Jesucristo su Hijo nos limpia de todo pecado” (1 Juan 1:7). “Sin derramamiento de sangre, no se hace remisión” (Hebreos 9:22).
Cree que te es necesario nacer de nuevo. “Os es necesario nacer de nuevo” (Juan 3:7). “Respondió Jesús y le dijo: De cierto, de cierto te digo, que el que no naciere de nuevo, no puede ver el reino de Dios” (Juan 3:3).
Cree que por la fe recibirás vida eterna: “De cierto, de cierto os digo: El que oye mi palabra, y cree al que me envió, tiene vida eterna; y no vendrá a condenación, mas ha pasado de muerte a vida” (Juan 5:24).
Cree que todos los que rechazan a Cristo y Su sacrificio expiatorio en la cruz recibirán castigo eterno: “Pero los cobardes e incrédulos … y todos los mentirosos tendrán su parte en el lago que arde con fuego y azufre, que es la muerte segunda” (Apocalipsis 21:8).
La Invitación De Cristo
“Venid a mí todos los que estáis trabajados y cargados, y yo os haré descansar” (Mateo 11:28). “Al que a mí viene, no le echo fuera” (Juan 6:37).
¿Aceptarás La Invitación?
Amigo, deseamos sinceramente que consultes la Biblia para ver si estas cosas son así, y que las creas de todo corazón. Sólo así puedes evitar el engaño y el juicio que son consecuencias de las falsas religiones del hombre. “Hay camino que parece derecho al hombre, Pero su fin es camino de muerte” (Proverbios 16:25). Si arrepentido depositas tu fe en el Señor Jesucristo, serás salvo para siempre. “Yo les doy vida eterna; y no perecerán jamás, ni nadie las arrebatará de mi mano” (Juan 10:28).
“Y todo aquel que vive y cree en mí, no morirá eternamente. ¿Crees esto?” (Juan 11:26).

How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
