"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever (that's you) believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16

It takes more than just "believing" that God exist or that Jesus died. Even the devil believes that!

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. James 2:19

The first step is to "Believe" your a sinner. Just like the rest of mankind.

" But I'm a good person! I've never killed anyone or cheated on my spouse!"

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

Have you ever lied? Stolen anything.....even just a pen? Cheated on a test?

Just like me and everyone else your a sinner. What does God tell us about sin?

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

This tells us that our payment for our sins is Death. Eternal death; permanent separation from God! But God has "given" us a gift! We all know gifts are FREE!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2: 8,9

There's that gift again! It's not what we do but what God DID FOR US! Remember you can not "earn" a gift so you cannot "earn" your way into heaven. Good works are wonderful but they won't save you from the pits of hell!

So how can you receive this gift? All you have to do is accept it.

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Corinthians 5:21

This tells us that God made Jesus to be sin for us! He paid the price for the gift!

Jesus tells us in the bible that there is ONLY ONE way to God. And that way is through him, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Jesus himself said that anyone who believes on him has everlasting life! Enter the kingdom of heaven with our Lord and Savior!

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John 6:47

You can have eternal life right now! You don't have to be in a church to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior!

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. Romans 10:9

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13

Tell God you believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins. Tell Him you're trusting Him and Him alone to give you eternal life.

If you just said a prayer confessing with your mouth and believing with your heart the Lord Jesus then...Welcome to the family! :) How do you feel?

Go tell everyone you know! Be proud don't be ashamed. You just did the best thing in your entire life! God and his angles are having a party in honor of you!

there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. -Luke 15:10b

  1. How many of your sins has Christ paid for? ALL OF THEM!
  2. How many of your sins does Christ remember? NONE OF THEM!
  3. Where does Christ now live? In your heart!

What do I do next?

First you need to buy yourself a good bible. Start today. I strongly urge you first to read the Gospel of John, and then read the book of Romans. The Gospel of John will tell you the basic Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the book of Romans will tell you about basic Christianity.

Next find a good bible believing church. Tell the pastor of your recent salvation and ask to be baptized. The Bible teaches that baptism is an outward showing of your becoming a Christian. It symbolizes your dying and coming back to life as a new child of Christ.

Once again Welcome to the Family. We are now sisters and brothers in Christ!
