How Can I Become a Christian

This is the most important decision you will ever make!  The Bible teaches that God created mankind to have a relationship with Him, but this relationship was broken when Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden. Because of that, we are born sinners and prove that all the time.  Romans 3:23 says; For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of (moved away from) God.”

God’s only way to bring us back was to offer His Son Jesus as a payment to cover our sins.  Of course, this is why Jesus had to die on the cross.  Romans 5:8 says; “…God showed His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

So, the payment for our sins has already been paid which is why salvation requires no works, no good deeds, but is simply accepting what Christ has done for us.  If you would like to accept Christ, may we suggest an example of what someone might pray.

“God, I know that my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me.  I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayers. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.”

Romans 10:9-10 says; “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

If you prayed that prayer, I would love to chat with you to talk it through. It is of the upmost importance for eternity hangs in the balance.
