How do I become a Christian?

What must I do to be saved and to become a  Christian?

Here are seven steps to acknowledge for the believer:

Step 1: Acknowledge That You Are a Sinner (Romans 3:23).
Step 2: Recognise That God Did Something About It (John 3:16).
Step 3: Receive Christ as Your Saviour (Romans 6: 23).
Step 4: Confess Sin and Get Rid of it (1 John 1:9).
Step 5: Confess and Believe Jesus Is Saviour and Lord (Romans 10:9-10).
Step 6: Be baptized  (Matthew  28:19, Mark 16:16).
Step 7: Be baptized in The Holy Spirit, (John 3.5, Luke 24:49, Acts 2.)

Here’s a prayer you may like to use.

Dear Lord, I know that I have sinned against you and against others and I am sorry.

I believe in my heart that you sent your Son to die for me on the cross.
Please come and live in my heart and be my Saviour;
I receive you now.
I turn away from sin and ask that you help me to do this.
I confess with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord and Saviour and believe in my heart that He rose from death.
Thank you Lord for saving me, Amen

If you have decided to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you are now born again. Here are a few things that will help you to grow as a Christian…

PRAY—prayer is like a telephone line that goes directly to God. It’s important to spend time talking to Him every day, the more the better (Philippians 4:6).

READ THE BIBLE—the Bible is like a love letter from God. The more you read it, the more you’ll fall in love with Him (1 Peter 2:2).

FELLOWSHIP—you need to have friends who share your beliefs and who can encourage you. This is why it’s so important to find a good, Bible-believing church where you can meet other Christians (Hebrews 10:24-25).

WITNESS TO OTHERS—share your faith in Jesus Christ with others. Pray that the Lord will reveal how you should witness and when (Mark 16:15).

God bless you and we pray that you continue to grow closer to the Lord every day!

Brian’s Prayer

 
Show me the way oh Lord so that I may know where to go.
Hear my cry for understanding of your wonderful grace.
Lead me along the road that leads to heaven.
Fill my heart with love and compassion,
As a human I am limited in strength.
That’s why I need Your wise guidance.
Fill me with Your consideration for others,
So that I may share with them the lasting happiness You provide.
Amen.
