  • 1 This is a faithful saying: if a man seeks the office of an overseer, he desires a good work.
  • 2 The overseer therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, modest, hospitable, good at teaching;
  • 3 not a drinker, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous;
  • 4 one who rules his own house well, having children in subjection with all reverence;
  • 5 (but if a man doesn't know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the assembly of God?)
  • 6 not a new convert, lest being puffed up he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.
  • 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from those who are outside, to avoid falling into reproach and the snare of the devil.
  • 8 Servants, in the same way, must be reverent, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for money;
  • 9 holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
  • 10 Let them also first be tested; then let them serve if they are blameless.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
