How to become a Christian
How can you become a Christian?
A Christian is a person who is a follower of Jesus and believes in him. The Bible offers a clear answer so you can know you are a Christian.
When a man asked Jesus how to have eternal life, he said, "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). Those who believe in Jesus will have eternal life.
How can you believe in Jesus?
The Bible also answers this question: "If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9).
To believe includes two parts. First, you accept that Jesus is Lord. He came from heaven to earth to die on the cross and offer a way for us to go to heaven.
Second, you must believe Jesus rose from the dead. He died on a cross, but he did not stay dead. He came alive again, appeared to many people, and then returned to heaven.
You can pray to become a Christian right now.
You can pray the following words and receive eternal life:
"Dear Lord Jesus, I admit to you that I have sinned. I know that I cannot save myself. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe that your death was for me, and I receive your sacrifice on my behalf. As best I can, I now transfer all of my trust from myself and anything that I would do, to you. I open the door of my life to you. By faith, I receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Amen."
