The ABC's of Becoming a Christian
A - ADMIT
ADMIT to God that you are a sinner, REPENT, turning away from your sin.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23 HCSB
B - BELIEVE
BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is God's Son and accept God's gift of forgiveness from sin.
"For God so loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 HCSB
"But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!" Romans 5:8 HCSB
C - CONFESS
CONFESS your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and 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. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation...For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:9-10 13
Prayer for Salvation
Dear God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and mistakes. I need Your forgiveness.
I believe that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, and I am now willing to turn away from sin.
Right now I confess Jesus as the lord of my life. With my heart I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. Right now I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior.
Thank you, Jesus, for Your grace and mercy which has forgiven me from my sins. Transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank You for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
