Can you give the plan of salvation in 25 words or less?

In my experience, it takes more that 25 words. Romans chapters 3, 4, and 5 give the plan of salvation. This is what I mainly use to witness. When a person comes to realize he is a sinner unacceptable to God, (Rom 3 and 5) and comes to trust Christ's death for his sins, his burial, and his resurrection are the only way he can be completely forgiven and reconciled to God; then THIS is the time when he is saved from his sins and receives eternal life. (Rom 3, 4 and particularly chapter 5).
It is NOT about confessing, or saying the right words, or "ABC's of Salvation", or "asking Jesus to save you and to come into your life"....Those are all fine and can help lead you to salvation, but they do not give you salvation. It is only by simply BELIEVING the good news that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead for our justification. (Rom 4:23-25; 1 Cor 15:1-4). When an unsaved person simply believes this gospel of his salvation he is accepting Christ as his Savior and he automatically receives forgiveness and eternal life-that he or she can NEVER loose; nothing else to be saved is required from a person. (Eph 1:13-14)

BTW, posting the plan of salvation on sites like RF here is witnessing to the unsaved the gospel. It does not have to be in person.

God became man, lived a sinless life, was crucified, died and rose from the dead. Eternal life for those who put their trust in Him.

(but there sure is a lot to unpack in those 25 words.)
These are good! My latest idea is I want to make up some cards or small folders to print at home. Leave them in the grocery store.

Been thinking about the pickle section, title that one something like "the real pickle we're all in is sin". Then give the solution.

In the water and juice isle, something about the water of life.

In the bread aisle, about the bread of life, or not living by bread alone.

In the soap area, sins washed white as snow.

Amidst the onions in produce, every tear will be wiped away...

What a wonderful idea
