HOW to Become A Christian

 

Before you were born, God wanted you to know HIM personally.

HE chose to show you how much HE loves you.

But to accept HIS offer, you need to know the ABC's of Salvation:

 

ADMIT to God that you are a sinner.  Sin is the act of refusing to acknowledge God's claim over your life.  Everyone sins.  And the result of sin is spiritual death and eternal separation from God when you die.  Repent; turn away from your sin and turn toward God.

Note these quotes from the Bible:

Acts 3:19 - Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out and that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is eternal death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as God's Son and accept Jesus' gift os forgiveness from sin.  Jesus took the penalty for your sin by dying on the cross because you could not meet God's requirement for a perfect sacrifice for your sins.

Note this scriptue:

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

CONFESS to God your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  As Lord, Jesus has earned the right to be obeyed as a sheep obeys its shepherd.

Romans 10:9 -  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. 

 

You may pray a prayer similar to this:  "Dear Lord, I know that You love me.  I admit I am a sinner.  Please forgive my sin.  I place my faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.  Thank you for saving me, In Jesus' name I pray, amen."

If you sincerely asked Jesus to be your Savior, tell a Pastor or another Christian about your decision.  Show your faith in Christ by asking a Bible-believing church for baptism by immersion.
