Have you ever wondered why people "get saved"? What makes them want to follow Jesus? 101 Salvations tells the "how, why, and where" stories of 101 people who did just that.
Each story is as unique as the individual: The Sawdust Trail...Crying and Laughing...Rocky to Reborn...2AM Room 302 Bed B...I Got Saved to Get a Boyfriend...Vegas...38 Pistol...The Little Blond Haired Boy...Tricked...Salvation and a Slurpie, Too...and 91 more...
Some were altered at the altar, some found Jesus on the job, some grew up knowing and loving God. Some went through fire and water and some walked a garden path. But every story has the same ending: Jesus revolutionized my life. Perhaps you will see yourself in these stories. My prayer is that you see Jesus as well. Enjoy 101 Salvations!

He said, “Yes, that’s me.”
I said to him, “I was sitting in the second pew. I lost something. I don’t know what it was. Did you find anything?”
He said, “No, I didn’t find anything.”
I felt strange. I said to God, “God, I don’t know what I have lost here. Only You can tell me what I lost.”
I got the answer just like that: “All your sins.”
That’s what it was! I was a completely new person. I was completely light. All my sins were not on my shoulder anymore. I was feeling free that way...
