How To Become a Christian

Admit your sinful ways and desire to turn from them and be delivered from the judgment they bring.

Romans 3:10,23 (ESV)
10  as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; … 23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Acts 3:19 (ESV)
19  Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,

Acknowledge what Christ did for sinners on the cross, which was confirmed by His resurrection from the dead.

Romans 5:8 (ESV)
8  but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 11:25 (ESV)
25  Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,

Receive Him as the only means of eternal life.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)
8  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9  not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

John 1:12 (ESV)
12  But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,

John 6:40 (ESV)
40  For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

Appropriate His rightful claim as Lord of your life.

Romans 10:9 (ESV)
9  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.

Philippians 2:10-11 (ESV)
10  so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Pray the Sinner’s Prayer.

Holy God, be merciful to me: a sinner. Please forgive me. I want Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I believe He lived a sinless life, died upon the cross in payment of my sins, and conquered death so that I could have eternal life. Help me to live for You from this day forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
