Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone can ever make. What does the Bible say about becoming a Christian?
- God loves you.
1 John 4:10
- Sin separates you from God.
- Sin is choosing my way instead of God's way.

How to Become a Christian

(Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23).
- Repent, turning away from your sin
(Acts 3:19; 1 John 1:9).

Is it time for you to become a Christian?
God's Holy Spirit will help you know if you are ready to become a Christian. If it is not time for you to become a Christian, put this information away until later. If it is time for you to become a Christian, pray a prayer such as the one below.
I know I have sinned and that my sin separates me from You. I am sorry for my sin. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me so my sin can be forgiven. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive.
God, please forgive me. I ask Jesus to come into my life and be my Savior and Lord. I will obey You and live for You the rest of my life.
Thank You. Amen.
Will you ever sin again?
- Yes. Everyone sins.
- When you do sin, ask God to forgive you and to help you obey Him. Ask Him! He will!
1 John 1:9
Will you ever have to become a Christian again?
- No. When you ask Jesus to be your Savior and Lord, salvation lasts forever.
- Remember this promise from God:
If I ever wonder if I am a Christian, I can remember this special day when Jesus came into my life to stay!
