We are excited that you are interested in becoming a Christian. This is a personal decision that will affect all eternity. The best way to understand our need to become a Christian is found in the book of Romans.
By nature, we are sinful and need Jesus to save us. The only way to become a Christian and spend eternity in heaven is to make Jesus our personal Lord and Savior. There is no one righteous, not even one. (Romans 3:10) All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) The punish for our sin is death. (Romans 6:23)
This is bad news. We are all sinners and the results of our sin will be eternal death. Even so, there is good news in Christ Jesus. The latter part of Romans 6:23 tells us "...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." For while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) As a result, "If you declare 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 profess your faith and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10)
Anyone can do this. It is as simple as ABC. Pray to Jesus, (A)dmitting that you are a sinner. Tell him that you (B)elieve that He is the Son of God. (C)onfess to him that you are a sinner and that you need forgiveness. Ask him to be Lord of your life and to save you.
You can have confidence in your salvation, for everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:13)
If you have asked Jesus to be the Lord of your life, tell somebody. We would love to celebrate with you. Please contact one of our staff members as we would love to help you get involved with a fellowship of believers.
