Giving your Life to Christ
How to give your life to Christ:
1. Admit you are a sinner and need God's forgiveness
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave
3. Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for him the rest of your life.
What to Pray:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I have sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I believe that Jesus offers me forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Please forgive my sins and help me turn from them I now trust your promise, "That whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
I will receive Jesus Christ as my savior and Lord. I commit myself to live for him and to allow him to live in me from the day in my life. In Jesus name Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, please send us an e-mail to let us know of your decision. We welcome you to the family of God, and would love to send you some literature to help you begin your walk with the Lord.
How you can know you are forgiven?
The Bible says: verily, Verily, I say unto you, he that hearth My word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
What do I do now?
As you draw close to the Lord, He will teach you his ways and give you his strength. There are some practical steps you can take to come closer to God and allow him to guide you.
It is important to spend time in prayer every day. Just as you can not grow without eating food each day, so your spirit must be fed in order for growth to occur in our walk with the Lord. Prayer is simply talking to your heavenly Father.
The Bible is the main way to God has chosen to tell us about Himself. Learning what God says in the Bible is a very important part of your new life. A good place to start your study is in the gospel of John in the New Testament.
When you gave your life to Jesus Christ, you became a vital part of the family of God and the church. As you get involved in a local church you will receive strength and encouragement from other believers.
