How do I become a Christian?
How can I know Jesus?
How can I be in God's family?
How do I get to heaven?
All of these questions are answered when we understand that we are separated from God by our sin and that we can't do anything or enough to pay for that sin and restore our relationship with God. But the good news is that when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior to pay the penalty for our sins, we can have a relationship with God...
God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." -John 10:10
Man is sinful and separated from God. As a result, we cannot know God’s wonderful plan for our lives.
"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23
"the wages of sin is death." -Romans 6:23
Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Jesus Christ, we can have our sins forgiven and be restored to a right relationship with God.
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8
"...that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures..." -1 Corinthians 15:3-4
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." -John 14:6
We must place our faith in Jesus Christ as Savior in order to receive the gift of salvation and know God’s wonderful plan for our lives.
"Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." -John 1:12
"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved!" -Acts 16:31
"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
