I was amazed when I started searching this for a friend that the Roman Road wasn’t online in any concise location I could find. So, here is it, for those who want it:
The Roman Road
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
What IS the Roman Road?
I am neither a bible scholar nor a preacher, so I’ll lay this out only in the simplest of terms. The roman road is NOT the “way” to salvation, for only God’s grace provides salvation. The roman road is a set of verses set down in the book of Romans in the new testament. The verses provide a roadmap for HOW to be saved; they tell you the things you have to understand, believe, and do to be able to receive the gift of salvation.
Basically they provide you with the most fundamental building blocks required for you to be saved.
Romans 3:23: Understand that we are all sinners and none of us deserve heaven, no matter what we “do.”
Romans 6:23 Understand that we are all bound for hell and only through Christ can salvation be attained.
Romans 5:8 Believe that A) Christ is the holy son of God, perfect in all ways, and that B) He was sent to die as repayment for all the sins we may ever perform in this life on earth.
Romans 10:13 That to receive salvation you have to Ask God for it.
Romans 10:9,10 You have to confess to God all these things and BELIEVE it in your heart. The last verse is a reminder: Your heart HAS to believe it, and your mouth HAS to proclaim it. (Also called the Profession of Faith in some churches.)
