How to Become a Christian

How to Become a Christian

Jesus plainly stated that He is the only way to heaven. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me.” John 14:6 There are not many ways to God. There is only one way, and that is through Jesus Christ. The New Testament is the guidebook explaining His way. And so we encourage all who are seeking understanding – read the New Testament. Start with the gospel of John, which is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don’t own a Bible, please ask. We provide free copies  to any who ask.

And consider this simple outline of how to become a Christian:

Admit that you have sinned.

“all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23

Believe that Jesus died for you.

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” Acts 16:31

“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.” John 3:16

Call upon Him.

“That 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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10

“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
