Becoming a Christian
BECOMING A CHRISTIAN
God is a God of hope. He offers hope through His Son, Jesus. You can communicate the hope of salvation through Jesus to parents and the children you teach. This plan can be a guide as you share your testimony with people in your ministry.
First of all, accept that...
God loves you. He loved you so much that he allowed His very own Son to take the blame for your sin (John 3:16)
Christ died for you and everyone who has sinned against Him. (Romans 5:8b)
Everyone sins. No exceptions! (Romans 3:23)
Sin separates you from God. The price you should reasonably pay is separation (death) from God, but He has another way. (Romans 6:23)
Jesus is the answer. Believe in Jesus. The Bible says that believeing Jesus is God's Son is the first step toward faith. (Acts 16:31)
Admit to God that you are a sinner. Ask God to forgive you and to allow you to live with Him forever. (1 John 1:9)
Do not just say you are sorry but ask God to help you change your ways. Do an about-face. Ask God to help you stop doing what you should not do and do what you should. (Acts 3:19)
Tell others about your faith in Jesus. Confess to others what Jesus has done for you and how He has changed your life. (Romans 10:9)
Live in a way that pleases God. God wants you to follow His guidelines for living. This will be your testimony to your new life in Him. (John 14:15) Take the next step of obedience through baptism. Then grow through fellowship and worship with other believers.
