How do I Become a Christian?

Becoming a Christian means that you accept Jesus Christ as the Savior of your eternal life.  You only need to confess with your mouth that He is the Ruler of your life and believe in your heart that man-praying-darkGod raised Him from the dead to become a Christian (Romans 10:9-10).  That’s it in a nutshell…below is a more detailed description of God’s plan for saving your life and how to become a Christian.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us (330-493-3222) or come in.  We’d love to talk to you and answer any questions you might have.

 

 

1. We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, accepting our humble position in God’s created order and purpose. Romans 1:20-21

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

2. We must realize that we have sinned and that we need forgiveness. None of us are worthy under God’s standards. Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”

3. God gave us the way to be forgiven of our sins. He showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8

“But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

4. If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we repent of our sins, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will have eternal life. Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

5. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you are saved. Romans 10:9-10

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

6. There are no other religious formulas or rituals. Just call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved! Romans 10:13

“For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

7. Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today. Romans 11:36

For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
