 The ABC'S of Becoming a Christian


Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone can ever make. What does the Bible say about becoming a Christian?

God loves you.
"This is love: Not that we loved God, but that he loved us." 1 John 4:10


Sin separates you from God.
Sin is not doing what God wants you to do. You sin when you disobey God. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

God sent Jesus so you would not have to die for your sin. Jesus died on the cross, He was buried and He rose from the dead.
"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

Admit to God that you are a sinner in need of a Savior (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23).
Repent, turning away from your sin (Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9)

Believe that Jesus is God’s Son and accept God’s gift of forgiveness from sin (Romans 5:8; Acts 4:12; John 3:16; John 14:6, Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:11-13).

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (Romans 10:9-10, 13).

Is it time for you to become a Christian?
God’s Holy Spirit will help you know if you are ready to become a Christian. If it is not time for you to become a Christian, put this away until later. If it is time for you to become a Christian, pray a prayer such as the one below.

Dear God:
I know I have sinned and that my sin separates me from you. I am sorry for my sin. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me so my sin can be forgiven. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive. God, please forgive me. I ask Jesus to come into my life and be my Savior and Lord. I will obey you and live for you the rest of my life. Thank you.
