How Can I Become A Christian?
Information, Salvation Prayer, and Christian Resources
God loves you and has a plan for you!
The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave
His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ],
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish,
but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
Jesus said, "I came that they may have life
and have it abundantly"
a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).
But here's the problem:
Man is sinful and separated from God.
We have all done, thought or said bad things,
which the Bible calls "sin." The Bible says,
"All have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
The result of sin is death, spiritual
separation from God (Romans 6:23).
The good news?
God sent His Son to die for our sins!
Jesus died in our place so we could have
a relationship with God
and be with Him forever.
"God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
But it didn't end with His death on the cross.
He rose again and still lives!
"Christ died for our sins.
… He was buried. …
He was raised on the third day,
according to the Scriptures"
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
Jesus is the only way to God.
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father, but through Me"
Would you like to receive God's forgiveness?
We can't earn salvation; we are saved by God's grace
when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
All you have to do is believe you are a sinner,
that Christ died for your sins,
and ask His forgiveness.
Then turn from your sins-that's called repentance.
Jesus Christ knows you and loves you.
What matters to Him is the attitude
of your heart, your honesty.
We suggest praying the following prayer
to accept Christ as your Savior:
"Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner,
and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe you died for my sins
and rose from the dead.
I trust and follow you
as my Lord and Savior.
Guide my life
and help me to do your will.
In Jesus name,
Prayer of Salvation
I've Prayed It; Now What?
If you've prayed this prayer of salvation
with true conviction and heart,
you are now a follower of Jesus.
This is a fact, whether or not you feel any different.
Religious systems may have led you to believe
that you should feel something - a warm glow,
a tingle, or some other mystical experience.
The fact is, you may, or you may not.
If you have prayed the prayer of salvation and meant it,
you are now a follower of Jesus.
The Bible tells us that your eternal salvation is secure!
"that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him
from the dead, you will be saved".
Romans 10:9-10 (NIV) reads as follows:
9That 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.
10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified,
and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
What does the bible say about baptism?
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV) reads:
18Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
