How Do You Become A Christian?

and you will be saved,

for all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God" Romans 3:10

Lord will be saved" Romans 10:13

Trust Jesus Christ 100% to be your ONLY
hope of Salvation

one and only Son, that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16
BECOME a child of God by TRUSTING Jesus Christ

name, He gave the right to become the children of God"
C: CONFESS that Jesus Christ is your Lord
"If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart that God raised Him
from the dead, you will be saved"
The Sinners Prayer
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
