Quite intentionally, God has made it simple to become a Christian and begin the journey of following Christ! Start with a prayer seeking God’s forgiveness for your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior. (Sample prayer below, along with scriptural references.)
Being a Christian isn’t about following rituals, doing good deeds or going to church. Becoming a Christian is about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through faith. Believing in Christ, being sorry for your sins and then following Him is what makes a person a Christian. You can pray right where you are.
Here is a sample prayer: "Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I need and want your forgiveness. I accept your death on the cross as the penalty for my sin, and recognize that your mercy and grace are offered to me because of your great love, not based on anything I have done. By faith I claim you as my Lord and Savior. Please help me become the kind of person you want me to be and put you first all the days of my life. Thank you for your grace and the gift of salvation through Christ!"
Prayer is just the beginning of the Christian walk. We would love to pray with you, answer any questions you might have or help you know more about following Christ. Reach out to our pastor or any one of our leaders and we’ll help you along your way in the quest to know God better.
