How to Become a Christian
To become a Christian you must place your Trust in Jesus. This can be broken down into three basic steps: Believe - Repent - Surrender.
- Believe: Believe that Jesus died on a cross for your sins and was resurrected from the dead on the third day afterwards.
- Repent: Pray and tell God you are sorry for your sins against him and ask his help to turn away from your sins.
- Surrender: Pray and give control of your life over to Jesus, as King of your life.
If you have truly believed in Jesus, repented of your sins and surrendered your life to Jesus, then you have become a Christian! The verses below from the Bible describe a person becoming a Christian.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (English Standard Version)
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (English Standard Version)
Peter replied, "Each of you must repent of your sins, turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to show that you have received forgiveness for your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38 (New Living Translation)
