How to Become a Christian


1. You must believe that you are a sinner, and you cannot save yourself.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us….If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” 1 John 1:8,10

“But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” James 3:8

2. What happens if I reject Jesus?

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Revelation 20:15 “And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

3. How can I be saved?

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

4. If you want to become a Christian, pray something like this:

Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I am sorry for all the sins I have done. Will you please forgive me? I want to turn from sin and live for You. I invite You to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour and Lord. I want to love you, Jesus, and serve you with all my heart. Amen.

5. What now awaits me?

1 John 5:11-12 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

6. How to have a successful Christian life:

  • Be baptized and confess Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior.
  • Worship Jesus regularly with other Christians who love and obey Jesus with all their heart, soul mind and strength.
  • Learn, memorize and obey Christ’s commands.
