The ABC’s Of Salvation

Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone can ever make.

What does the Bible say about becoming a Christian?

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loves us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”  1 John 4:10 (NIV)

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”  Romans 3:23 (NIV)

“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 (NIV)

 

How To Become A Christian

A – Admit:  Admit to God that you are a sinner (Romans 3:23; 6:23).  Repent (turn away) from your sin (Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9).

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

C- Confess:  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 time, pray a prayer such as the one below:

    Dear God, I know that I have sinned and that my sins separate me from you.  I am sorry for my sins.  I believe Jesus died on the cross for me so my sins can be forgiven.  I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive.  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! In Jesus Name, Amen!

If you have trusted Jesus to be your Savior and Lord, you can be sure that:

  1. Your sin is forgiven
  2. You are a Christian
  3. You are a child of God
  4. God will always be with you
  5. You will go to heaven when you die

 

What Should You Do Now?

Tell others that you are a Christian.  Attend Church and Bible study regularly.  Be baptized to show others that you are a Christian.  Read your Bible and pray every day.
