Do YOU have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
Here's how you can become a Christian.

It's By Invitation
Jesus, God's Son, promised that He needs only an invitation to come into your life. Because He is God's Son, He would never tell a lie. God wants you to be sure that Jesus is in your life. "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life" (I John 5:13)
This is a promise that can't be broken.

Sin Separates Us From God

Sin, or willful disobedience to God, separates us from God. "For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) Committing one sin makes a person a sinner. Jesus is God's only provision for dealing with humanity's sin. "But God demonstrates His own love for us, in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
(Romans 5:8)

God's Spirit Creates Awareness
God's Spirit makes us aware of our sin and the penalty for sin. His Spirit works in our hearts, telling us that Jesus stands outside our heart's door, knocking and asking for entrance into our hearts. But He does not open that door Himself.

God Provides Forgiveness For Sin
To receive forgiveness, we must follow God's way, not our own. The Bible says we cannot save ourselves. "For it is by God's grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast"
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

Repent and Turn Away From Sin
The Bible also says, "Repent then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out"
(Acts 3:19).
Repentance is turning to God through Jesus and turning away from sin. You then must give Him control of your life, allowing Him to be in charge of every situation.

What The Bible Says I Need To Know

1. I know I have sinned.
2. I know there is a penalty for sin.
3. I know I must be saved to avoid eternal separation from God  in a place called hell.
4. I know that being saved will give me eternal fellowship with God in a place called Heaven.
5. I know I can ask Christ to come into my life.

If you would like to have salvation in Jesus Christ, ask God in prayer to forgive your sin and invite Jesus into your life to save you right now. Then share your decision with a pastor or another Christian friend. Ask this person to help you grow in Christ. Follow Christ in baptism and church membership.
