What You Should Know About Becoming a Christian

  • The Bible Tells Us That All Humans:

    Are sinners and need a Savior. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

    Are separated from God because of our sin. For the wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23a)

  • The Bible Tells Us That God:

    Provided a way to bring us into fellowship with Him. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

  • The Bible Tells Us That Salvation:

    Comes only through Jesus. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but by Me."( John 14:6)

    Is an act of faith. For it is 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 so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Are you ready to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

If so, just pray this simple prayer:

Dear God,

I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins, and that He rose from the grave to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin.

I now ask you, Lord Jesus, to forgive me of my sin. Come into my heart and save me.

Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. AMEN.
