How To Become A Christian

God loves you and has a purpose for you.

"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."  John 3:16, NIV

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."  John 10:10, NKJV

Sin separates you from God.

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

People often try to bridge this gap by doing a lot of good things.  No bridge reaches God . . . except one.

God's bridge:  the CROSS.

"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.'"  John 14:6, NIV

Jesus is the only way.

Our response – trust Jesus.

"Yet to all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."  John 1:12, NIV

"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9, NIV

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

  1. Admit your need.  (I am a sinner.)
  2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
  3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.
  4. Pray a prayer like this:  Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness.  I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead.  Now I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.  In Your Name, Amen.
