How Do I Become a Christian?
Recognize that you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (NIV)
Understand that sin leads to death, judgment.
Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (NIV)
Understand that God sent His Son to die to pay the penalty for your sins.
Romans 5:8 - "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (NIV)
We must believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to receive eternal life.
John 3:16 - "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." (NIV)
In this new start in our lives we must commit our lives to God.
Romans 12:2 - "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will."
Pray a prayer like this:
I recognize that I am a sinner that has disobeyed you and am destined for death and judgment. I ask you to forgive me for my sins. I know that you sent Christ to die on the cross for them. I believe in His death in my place and His resurrection to overcome death. I give you my life.
