How Do I Become a Christian?
The ABC's of the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST
As someone considering the Christian faith, you must deal with two important questions:
How you answer those two questions is not inconsequential. They show where you are spiritually within the Christian faith. Are there wrong answers? You bet! Lots of them. Two answers bring the Christian faith into focus. To the first question, Christians will answer "Yes, for sure, absolutely." Many people will say that. But a second answer is required. Christians respond to the second question with these words: "Because Jesus died for my sins." If those two aren't your answers, perhaps you need to consider the following "ABC's" of the Christian faith.
Admit your failure to follow God and His will perfectly.
Believe what God has done for you in Jesus Christ.
Do you believe that Jesus Christ lived a perfect life, died on the cross, and rose from the dead for you? A prayer for this moment might be:
"Lord Jesus Christ, I confess that I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. But You died on the cross and rose from the dead to purchase a place in heaven for me. Thank you for giving me faith by the power of Your Holy Spirit, forgiveness of all my sins, and the gift of eternal life. Help me to live for You and to confess You before others. In Your name I pray. Amen."
So now you have begun. These are the ABC's of becoming a Christian. There is much more to learn and understand about your Lord, your faith, and His Church. If you have any questions, please contact the church office and we will be happy to respond to your questions and needs.
Go in peace and serve the Lord!
