How do I become a Christian?

You think you’re a good person. You’ve always tried to be the best you can be, and do what is right. The good outweighs the bad in your life. But, after all of this, do you still feel empty, unsatisfied, void and alone?

You may have even tried things such as drugs, sex, materialism, partying or hanging with a certain crowd to fill this unexplained need you have.


But, is something still missing from your life? There is One who can fill that void— God. If you’ve tried lots of solutions to make your life right, but none seem to work, then He is the answer.

God has given us an important manual for life—the Bible. He is the author of this book and has given significant, truthful instructions for how we can have joy, hope and peace in life. He has the answers to the problems and emptiness you may face.

You are here for a purpose, and not by accident. We were separated from God because of sin in the beginning of the world. But, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who lived on earth, suffered punishment, and died on a cross to pay for your sins. Three days later, He rose from the dead.

Jesus loves you, and desires to have a personal relationship with you. But, sin separates us from Him.

  • Admit you are sinner who deserves God’s judgment

    We believe everyone is born sinful and has violated God’s laws (Romans 3:23). As a result, mankind is separated from God and under his wrath. We cannot save themselves by good works (Romans 6:23)

  • Understand that Jesus Christ died for you and rose from the dead

    Even though we are sinful and headed for hell, God sent his son Jesus, who was fully God and fully man, to die on a cross to take the penalty for our sin. Furthermore, He rose from the dead three days later to demonstrate that God accepted his payment for sin (I Peter 3:18; and I Corinthians 15:5).

  • Repent of your sin and believe that Christ died/rose from the dead for you

    Understanding intellectually that Christ died and rose from the dead is not enough to save an individual. Even the demons believe intellectually that Jesus is the Son of God, but they are not going to heaven (James 2:14-25). To be saved, you must, with sincerity of heart, turn from your sin, seek forgiveness, repent (Acts 26:20) and believe that Christ died on the cross in your place and rose from the dead (Romans 10:9-10). When you do this, you are depending on Christ and not your good works to get you into heaven (Titus 3:4-5).

Salvation is not something you can earn or deserve; it is by grace, Gods underserved favor, a gift of Eternal Life.

If you are ready to accept the gift of eternal life through Jesus, and you truly desire to ask Him into your heart to be your personal Lord and Savior, then pray this prayer:

“Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that You died for my sins and rose from the grave so that I might have eternal life in heaven with You. I willingly repent of my sins and ask You to come into my heart and life. Take control of my words, thoughts and actions. I place all of my trust in You for my salvation. I accept You as my Lord and Savior, and this free gift of eternal life. Amen.”
