How to become a Christian.....
There is only one way to have everlasting life. There is only one way to live forever and be assured that you will always be with the Lord. There is only one way to the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven. There is only one way to the father and that one way is JESUS!!!
God loved you so much that he sent his son Jesus to earth to pay the price for your sins and make a way for you to live forever with Him. He paid the price you could not pay. He made a way of escape from the bondage of sin and death.
Receiving the gift of salvation is simple. It is basically involves 5 steps. Read these steps and the scriptures. Then pray and accept the gift of salvation.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me."
Step #1. YOU MUST BELIEVE IN JESUS! "For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
John 3:16, 17
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.
Step #2. YOU MUST CONFESS YOUR SINS You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and you want Jesus to wash your sins away. "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
Step #3. YOU MUST REPENT (turn away from your sins) "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
"The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the gospel."
Step #4. YOU MUST CONFESS JESUS BEFORE MEN If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
"For with the heart one believes unto rightousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9, 10
Step #5. YOU MUST ACCEPT THE GIFT OF SALVATION "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."
"But many as recieved Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name."
"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation."
2 Corinthians 6:2
Dear Heavenly Father,
I come in the Name of Jesus, I thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, into this world to die for my sins and for raising Him from the dead so that I can have everlasting life.
I recognize and acknowledge Jesus as my Savior and as the Lord of my life. I repent of my sins and I forgive those who have wronged me. I believe in my heart and I will confess openly my belief in Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. I recieve this gift by faith, In Jesus' name, AMEN!!!
"I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance, " - Jesus (Luke15:7)
