How Do I Become a Christian?

Admit that you have sinned.

  • We are all sinners by nature and by choice.
        “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Rom. 3:23)

Believe in your heart that Christ died for your sin.

  • “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
  • “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal lifethrough Jesus Christ our Lord.”(Rom. 6:23)
  • “But God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5:8)

Confess with your mouth that you have asked Jesus to be your Savior and Lord.

  • For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
  • “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.” (Rom. 10:9)
  • “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12)

If you are willing to receive Jesus into your life now, you can invite Him in by prayer.  You may use the following prayer or a similar prayer using your own words.

“Dear Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and died to forgive me of my   sins.    I know I have sinned.  I ask You to forgive me.  I turn from my sins, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior.  Thank You for saving me.  I want to live for You the rest of my life.  Amen.”
