How to Become a Christian

  

  Admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent turning from your sin.

  • For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23 ESV)
  • For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 ESV)
  • Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out. (Acts 3:19 ESV)


Believe that Jesus is God’s Son, and accept God's gift of forgiveness from sin. 

  •  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 ESV)
  • Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 ESV)
  • And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12 ESV)
  •  but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 ESV)
  • For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV)

      

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

  • If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 ESV)
  • because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved . . . For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  (Rom 10:9-10, 13 ESV)


Pray this prayer:

Dear God, thank You for choosing to love me! I know I am a sinner. I believe You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and lives today. Today, I admit I am a sinner; I repent and turn away from my sin. Thank You for Your wonderful love and for changing my life forever. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
