Plan of Salvation
The greatest legacy one can pass on to future generations is to live a life that will make an impact; a life that is filled with love and service for God. As Christians, we have received the amazing gift of eternal life through God’s wonderful grace and forgiveness. Our legacy begins in our hearts, through our relationship with God.
Let’s start at the beginning. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior, read the Plan of Salvation below. God wants to be more than your best friend and closer than the most loving spouse. He wants a personal relationship with you. “What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human heart has conceived—God has prepared these things for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
The Bible has a lot to say about the legacy we leave. It commends hard work and diligent saving. It also reminds us there is something we can leave behind that is of much greater importance than money. Make faith your legacy. “One generation will declare your works to the next and will proclaim your mighty acts.” Psalm 145:4
The Bible tells us we are to talk about the goodness of God to our family, neighbors and to all we meet. Deuteronomy 11:18-20 says, “Imprint these words of mine on your hearts and minds, bind them as a sign on your hands, and let them be a symbol[a] on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.” What legacy are you passing on to future generations?
We are pleased to offer you “My Legacy Story” which provides a way for you to record the story of God’s grace in your life. It is a great way to pass along your values and the way those values were developed in your life for those who follow behind you preserved in a format they will treasure.

The Southern Baptist Foundation has the opportunity to hear about the blessings our clients are experiencing through God’s redeeming love and forgiveness.
We pray that your life has also been transformed by the impact of God’s mercy and grace.
If not, please take a moment to reflect upon the amazing gift of salvation God gave us through his son Jesus Christ.
John 3:16-17 says that God so loved the world he sent His only son, Jesus Christ, so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God sent Jesus Christ not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Romans 10:9-10 says that “if you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”
If you are not sure what to say, the prayer below can help you communicate with God that you repent of your sin, receive His forgiveness, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
I know that I am a sinner and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for me and rose from the dead. I trust you as my Lord and Savior and pray that you guide my life and help me to do your will.
In your Holy name, Amen
