- Admit you are a sinner.
- Believe Jesus died to pay for your sin.
- Confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
- Through prayer, receive Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior.
How to pray:
"Dear Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I now confess you by faith as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen."
God's Assurance: His Word
If you prayed this prayer, the Bible says...
- "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13
- Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ to come into your life? What has He given you?
- "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
When you receive Christ, you are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. This is called regeneration, or the new birth.
This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should:
- Read your Bible every day to know Christ better.
- Talk to God in prayer every day.
- Tell others about Christ.
- Worship, walk with, and work for Christ with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
- As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
