How to become a Christian



Admit that you are a sinner.

Romans 3:23

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

Romans 6:23

"For the wages of sin is death."


Believe that Jesus paid for your sin at the cross.

Romans 5:8

"But God demonstrates His own love for us: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:23

"but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus."


Confess that Jesus is the Son of God, and commit your life to Him.

Romans 10:9

"That 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."


 You don't need fancy words when praying to Jesus, just an honest and sincere heart.

 Here is a sample prayer:  "Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner.  I believe You died for my sin and only through my faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven.  I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord.  From this day on, I will follow You by living a life that pleases You.  Thank you Lord Jesus, for saving me. Amen."


If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at the promise of Jesus: "Most assuredly I say to you, he who believes in Me has eternal life." John 6:47


Accepting Christ is just the beginning of a wonderful adventure with God!  Get to know Him better in a number of ways:

  • Follow Christ's example in Baptism. 
  • Join a church where you can worship God and grow in your faith. 
  • In your church, get involved in Sunday School and Bible Study, faithfully attend. 
  • Begin a daily personal worship experience with God where you study the Bible and pray.

We'd love to hear from you.  Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have about becoming a Christian, or tell us about your decision to follow Jesus Christ.


If you having read this, trusted Jesus for eternal life, please let us know.  We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.
