How do I become a Christian?

Realise that God loves you and has a plan for your life.

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.” John 3:16


Recognise that you are a sinner and that your sins separate you from God.

“Everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence.” Romans 3:23


Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross to pay for your sin and open the way for you to know God personally.

“This is what love is: it is not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the means by which we are forgiven.” 1 John 4:10


Commit your life to Jesus Christ, putting your faith in Him as your Saviour and seeking to follow Him as your Lord.

“…if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9


Christ’s invitation:

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…” Revelation 3:20


We can respond to Christ’s invitation and open the door of our hearts to Him by praying this prayer:


Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and in need of forgiveness.

I believe that you died for my sins and rose again. 

I want to turn from my sins and invite you into my heart and life as my Lord and Saviour.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen


“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God.”  Ephesians 2:8
