Maybe you are totally new to the Christian faith. Or perhaps you have known about God all your life. You may have attended church before. You may have wondered, “Am I really a Christian?” Maybe you’ve had doubts about it. Don’t click away from this website without being sure…God can help you make a positive change in your life.
 
Maybe you’ve been to a church before, or perhaps you’ve been to church since you were a child, or your mother was a Christian so you say “…that makes me Christian too”; but none of that matters unless you make that personal decision to truly follow Christ.
Making the Decision
God has given us free will to make our own choices. Sooner or later we all are faced with a decision to make in our lives. Whether it is choosing a career, to buy a home or car, or what health plan to select; it’s all about making an informed choice. So why not choose to follow God who gave His son for us? If you have decided to do so, here are some simple steps to help you make that choice:
 
Put God first:
Admit that God has not been first place in your life and ask Him to forgive your sins. “If we confess our sins He’s faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from every wrong.”

“ For all have sinned and fall short of God’s glory.” (The Bible, Romans 3:23)

Our life history condemns us to death, but God has provided a way to give us eternal life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (The Bible, Romans 6:23)

Believe in the Sacrifice:
Believe that Jesus Christ died to pay for our sins and that He rose and is alive today. “If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

He died for us and through Him alone we can know God and experience His love.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” (The Bible, John 3:16)

Accept God’s Free Gift of Salvation:
Don’t try to earn it. “It is by grace you are saved through faith and it is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God. Not of works so no one could boast.” You get there just by accepting God’s free gift. Our relationship to Christ is not restored by anything we do, but on the basis on what Jesus Christ already did for us on Calvary.

“ To all who believe in Him and accept Him, He gives the right to become the children of God.” (The Bible, John 1:12)
When we receive Christ through faith, we experience new birth.

“For God saved you by His special favor when you believed and you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” (The Bible, Ephesians 2:8,9)

Invite Jesus Christ to Come Into Your life and be Lord of Your Life:
No longer are we calling the shots in our lives. Jesus Christ is the manager of our lives. “To all who receive Him, He gives the right to become the children of God. All we need to do is to trust Him to save us. All these who believe this are reborn. Not a physical rebirth but from the will of God.”You can take these steps by praying a simple prayer of commitment to God. If you’ve never settled this issue or if you’ve always had doubts, “Am I really a Christian?  Do I know for sure I’m going to heaven?” You can know for sure by doing what Christ has said to do, by praying this prayer and meaning it in your heart:

“Dear Jesus, Thank you for making me and loving me even when I’ve ignored You and gone my own way. I realize I need You in my life and I’m sorry for my sins. I ask You to forgive me. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Please help me to understand it more. As much as I know how, I want to follow You from now on. Please come into my life and make me a new person inside. I accept Your gift of salvation. Please help me to grow as a Christian. Amen.”
