How to Become a Christian

We believe that God's word, the Bible, is the authority for all of life. The Bible clearly outlines the way to become a Christian. Look with us at these references in the Bible. These references are from the New American Standard (NAS) version of the Bible.

Romans 3:10
"... as it is written, 'THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;..."

Romans 3:23
"... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, ..."

We see from this that we are all sinners.


Romans 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

John 3:18
"He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. "

From these two verses above, we see that sin is punishable by spiritual death.


Romans 5:8
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. "

John 14:6
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

Here we see that Jesus died for us. He is the way of life.


Ephesians 2:8-9
"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast."

Salvation is a free gift from God. It is not earned.


Acts 3:19
"Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;"

You must repent of sins and have a desire to please God.


Romans 10:9-10
"... that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."

You must respond to Jesus in faith and publicly confess your new-found faith in Him.

If you would like to have salvation in Jesus Christ, sincerely pray a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know that you love me. I confess to you my sins and my need for salvation. I turn away from my sins and place my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, amen."

After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, tell a pastor or another Christian about your decision. Show others your faith in Christ by asking for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith.
