BECOME A CHRISTIAN

You probably have an opinion about Jesus. Maybe you think He’s a great teacher or a prophet. Maybe you think He didn’t exist at all. Whatever you believe, we can probably agree that Jesus changed things.

We believe He wants to change you too, and that he’s paved the way back to God for you.

So how do you actually become a Christian?

You just have to take a few simple steps.

Look at what the scriptures say:

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

That’s it… Confess with your mouth. Believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord…that God raised him from the dead, and your sins are forgiven and your relationship with God has begun. Do that, and you’re a Christian.

But you’re probably thinking, “Don’t I have to be a better person first?”

No, you don’t. You don’t change in order to gain God’s love, you change because you’ve experienced his love.

When you trust Jesus as your Saviour, you walk into the fullness of God’s love. Gradually, over time, God’s love changes you as you follow Jesus. You change because you’re loved, not in order to be loved.

Believing in Jesus is the first step on the greatest journey of your life. You haven’t finished the race—you’ve just gotten started.

Have you trusted Jesus with your life? If so, let us know!


READ YOUR BIBLE

So you want to get to know God. But how? Great question.

Start praying (talking to Jesus).

Now Prayer by itself is great, but prayer comes alive when you pair it with reading your Bible.

It’s hard to have a relationship of substance you never communicate with. In fact, it’s impossible. God’s word—the Bible—is the primary way He speaks to us. And it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.

You can download the YouVersion bible app for free for your phone or tablet.

Then start reading. 10 minutes a day.

We suggest starting with The Gospel of John and then reading Romans.

GET BAPTIZED

Baptism is something Christians have been doing for thousands of years as an outward demonstration of their faith in Jesus.

Put simply, Baptism is a public declaration of an internal decision of allowing Jesus into our lives.

Even if you were baptized as an infant, we’ll baptize you again because this time it’s your choice.
