How to Become a Christian

We believe the Word of God explains the path one should take when they are under conviction that they should transfer their trust from themselves to faith in Christ Jesus.

First one must realize that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

The Word of God tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).

And God goes on to tell us that He demonstrated His own love for us in this way: while we were still sinners, Christ Jesus chose to die for us (Romans 5:8).

Then God leads us to understand what we need to do in order to be saved. Listen to God as He speaks to us in Romans 10:-13, That if you CONFESS with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and BELIEVE in your heart that God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, you will be saved   For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

As the Word of God says, anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ will never be put to shame … the Lord blesses all who call on Him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

God reminds us again that once we confess our sin,  ask Jesus to forgive us of our sin, and  invite Christ into our hearts, we will have eternal life. In John 10:28 Jesus said:  give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;  NO one can snatch them out of MY hand … NO one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

The simple prayer to invite Jesus into your heart is something like this:

Lord Jesus I believe You are the Son of God and that You chose to die for my sin. I know that I am a sinner and I deserved the consequences of my sin which is death. But because of Your love for me, I accept You as my Savior and ask You to forgive me and come into my heart. Thank You for giving me eternal life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
