How to Become A Christian

You’re not here by accident. Jesus loves you, and He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. There is just one thing that separates you from God. That one thing is sin. This not simply doing “bad” things but is also when we fall short of What God wants us to be. The word in the bible for sin literally means missing the mark.

People tend to divide themselves into groups – good people and bad people. But God says that every person that has ever lived is a sinner, and any sin separates us from God. That includes you and me.

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

According to human rules, people should be punished or rewarded according to how good they are, and it might be hard for you to understand how Jesus could love you when other people don’t seem to. But I have great news for you! Jesus DOES love you! More than you can ever imagine! And there’s nothing you can do to make him stop!

Are you thinking that you should make things right in your life before you come to Jesus? Many people feel that way, but that’s not what God says!

“God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

For you to come to God you have to get rid of your sin problem. But God says that you can’t make yourself right with God by being a better person. God wants to save you JUST BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU!

“He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy.” Titus 3:5

It’s God’s grace that allows you to come to Him – not your efforts to “clean up your life” or work your way to Heaven. You can’t earn it. It’s a free gift.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

For you to come to God, your sin has to be dealt with. God’s gift to you is His son, Jesus, who removes both sin’s power and shame.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Jesus deals with your sin and mine by giving His life on Calvary’s cross. God brought Jesus back from the dead and paved the way for you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus.

All that’s left for you to do is to accept the gift that Jesus is holding out for you right now.

“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

God says that if you believe in His son, Jesus, you can live forever with Him in glory.

“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

Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? If it is your sincere desire to ask Jesus to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior, then talk to God from your heart:

Here’s a Suggested Prayer:

“Lord Jesus, I know that I have missed the mark and I do not deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave for me. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation and I accept your free gift of eternal life.”

If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.

If you have questions or concerns you would like help with, please call or write and let us know. We’re here to help you understand the love that Jesus is offering you for free, no matter who or where you are.

If you have made the big step of giving your life to Jesus it is important that you grow. Well, How do I do that? Just as a baby drinks and eats to grow so we to as Christians need to feed spiritually.

We do this is three ways:-

1. By Reading the Bible.

2. By Praying and listening to God.

3. By meeting with other Christians.

1. Reading the Bible

Get hold of a bible. It is probably a good idea to get a modern translation as it is easier to understand.

It is best to set a regular time during the day to read the bible. Do not try to read “loads” at once, a little and often is the best way. The bible studies on the link to site are a good place to start.

Spend 10 or 15 minutes to start with.

2. Praying and Listening to God

Just like in our earthly relationships we get to know people by spending time with them. If we want to get to know about God and Jesus we need to spend time with them.

Talk to God about the day you have had and any problems that you are experiencing.

God is interested in every detail of your life and don’t forget to praise and thank God for who he is and also for the great things around us.

Talk to God as if you were talking to your best friend because that is what you now have. A friend who will stick by you through and through. Spend about 5-10 minutes each day talking and listening to Him.

3.Meeting Other Christians

It is important that you find time to meet with other Christians, it is by listening and talking to other Christians that helps us grow.
