How to become a Christian

 

Why am I discussing something so personal with you? Because I care where you spend eternity. The Bible says everyone sins and that without forgiveness for sin we will perish. The penalty for sin is death. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 (NIV) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV)

Jesus paid the penalty for sin with His death, burial and resurrection. One can be saved by excepting the gift of eternal life.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)

Just believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins that you might have eternal life. Express repentance for those sins and you can be saved.
 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. John 3:18 (NIV) I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Luke 13:3 (NIV)

Your next step should be to want to share what you just accomplished with a Christian friend or relative. They should be able to share with you the need for baptism and discipleship.
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)

You may want to share your new found faith with us. We will be happy to hear of your new commitment to Christ. If you desire additional information concerning commitment and church membership simple contact us. 
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
