HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

For it is by the grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of God-not by works, so that no-one can boast. 

Ephesians 2:8,9

 
At the beginning of time God and man enjoyed close friendship, but man rebelled against God and chose his own way. This rebellion – this sin separates us from God. Everyone is affected by it.
 
There are many ways of trying to bridge the gap between ourselves and God. They all fail
 
-EXCEPT ONE.
 
The only way back to God is the way HE gave us.
 
 
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from our Lord.
Acts 3:19

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the father except through me.”

John 14:6
 
Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
 
The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for us, taking the penalty for our sin so that we can be forgiven. God then brought Jesus back to life and He is still alive today, giving us the way back to God.
 
We must make our own choice
 
Either
 
we trust the Lord Jesus Christ
 
or 
 
we reject him.
 
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 

… FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

Romans 3:23
 
When you turn from your sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God will give you His Holy Spirit; then you will have the power to live the Christian life. You will become a new person.
God loves us and wants us to turn back to Him.
 
Are you ready
  to open your life to Jesus?
 
The words of this prayer may help you.
 
Lord Jesus Christ,
I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words and actions. Also in the many good things I have not done.
I am sorry for my sins and I now turn from everything I know to be wrong. I know you gave your life for me on the cross.
Now I ask you to come into my life to cleanse me, control me, and be with me as a friend. I give myself to you in complete obedience for the remaining years of my life. Amen.
