How to Become a Christian

Read this page when you are alone with God, and pray that you will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal Saviour.

A true Christian is a person who trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved from the guilt and the power of sin -and is surrendered to Him as his Lord and Master – and confesses Him as such before the world.

There are a few simple steps in coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ in this way -

1. Come to Him confessing your sin and guilt. He is the way to God. Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” He further promises, “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” Again He has promised, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

2. Trust Him to Forgive your sins. On the Cross of Calvary He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. The Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Through the merits of His sufferings, and His precious shed blood you will receive pardon for all your sins.

3. Then in simple faith RECEIVE or trust the Lord Jesus Christ to be your Saviour. Here is the promise, “As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of  God, even to them that believe on His name.” Here is another promise, “God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life.”

4. The next step is to confess to someone that you are now a Christian – that the Lord Jesus Christ is your Saviour, and that you are going to serve Him. Ask some true Christian to pray with you, and to help you with any problems you may have. Read these Scriptures every day, and memorize them. Have regular times of prayer every day. Go to Services where you will meet other Christians, and find their friendship and help in your new life.
