Becoming a Christian

Know that God loves you. 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16

 

Everybody is a sinner.  Admit that YOU are a sinner. 

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

 

Believe that sin will keep you away from God. 

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

 

God forgives sin.  When you admit you have sinned and sincerely ask God to forgive you, He will forgive you. 

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."  1 John 1:9.

 

Jesus died so that all people can be saved.

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all." Isaiah 53:6

 

You become a Christian when you accept Jesus as your personal savior.

"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9

Prayer is very important as you think about accepting Jesus as your savior.  Ask God to help you as you make this decision.  To meet with our pastor or to talk to someone about trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please contact us at 706-638-2732.
