Becoming a Christian begins with believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He gave His life for you. He took your place and paid for all of your sins. His blood washes them away. The fact that He did this, however, is not enough.
Salvation comes when you accept that He did this, ask Him to forgive your sins, and allow Him to be Lord of your life. All of this is done through faith. It isn't magic or some such thing. It is believing in your heart, not just your head, that all of it is true. Faith is believing in that which you cannot prove but know it to be true.
But why did He do this? From the Bible, in John 3:16, it states..."For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not die but will have everlasting life". God's whole motivation was love. His love for you.
If you have not done so, utter a simple prayer such as..."Jesus, I believe in you. I know I have done things that I should not have, please, come into my heart and forgive me of my sins". If you say that, and mean it, your sins are forgiven and Jesus is Lord of your life.
We would love to share in your new life. Send us a note and we will send you some things that will help you or come to a Worship and tell us of your decision and your new life.
