Consider watching this short clip of what it means to be a Christian?
Jesus loves you, and He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. There is just one thing that separates us from God, and that is our sin. People often divide themselves into groups - good and bad people, but God says that every person that has ever lived is a sinner.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23To know God, our sin must be paid for. God's gift is His son, Jesus, who paid it for you.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ." Romans 6:23Jesus paid the price for our sin by dying on a cross. God brought Jesus back from the dead and paved the way for you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. We must accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus offers us.
"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 it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10God says that if you believe in His son, only then you can live forever with Him in heaven.
"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 3:16If you are ready to ask Jesus to come into your heart as your Lord and Savior, then talk to God and ask Him to take over your life. There is no magic formula, but God will accept your simple sincere prayer - one that says:
1. I know that I am a sinner.As you join our family, we want to celebrate with you and help you grow in your faith.
2. I believe you died for me.
3. I want you to forgive me and take control of my life.
4. I am trusting only you with my life.
5. Thank you for forgiving and accepting me.
