How does one become a Christian?


Some people find it difficult to believe just how simple it is to become a Christian. There is nothing we can do to earn forgiveness and new life through Christ. One can only receive the gift from God and thank Him for it. Do not be deceived into thinking that, before you can become a Christian, you need to clean up your life, give up certain habits, give money, give time, come to a better understanding of the Bible, or perform acts of service. None of these things will help you be a Christian. Christ, and only Christ, makes a person a Christian.

To become a Christian, simply tell God, in prayer, that you choose to place your faith in Jesus Christ to receive forgiveness for your sins and a new life. Tell God that you want Him to be in charge of your life from this point forward. Here's a sample prayer:

God, I want to be forgiven for my sin. I want to know You. I place my faith in Jesus Christ to receive forgiveness of sin and new life. I want Jesus to come into my life and make me new. I want You to fill me with the Holy Spirit and to control my life from this point forward. Thank you for forgiving me. Thank you for giving me Christ. Please open my eyes to understand my new life in Christ. Amen
