First Steps To Salvation

What does it mean to become a Christian?

Where Do I Start?

ACCEPT THE GIFT OF SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST

Most people live their entire lives without ever knowing the reason “WHY?”. They exist year after year with no idea of why they live, or what God’s purpose is for their lives. The most basic question a person can ask is, “What is the meaning of life?”

Everyone wants to be happy and try many ways to achieve this. Some look for happiness by acquiring possessions, pleasure, or power. But real happiness comes from understanding my purpose.

Why Am I Here?

God made me to love me! See yourself as God sees you!
Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be His through our union with Christ … because of His love. God had already decided that through Jesus Christ He would make us His children — this was God’s pleasure and purpose. – Ephesians 1:4-5 (GN)

When we know and love God, and live in harmony with His purpose for our lives, it produces tremendous benefits in our lives.

WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO

Admit that God has not been first place in your life and ask Him to forgive your sins.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from every wrong. – 1 John 1:9

Believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins and that He rose again on Easter, 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. – Romans 10:9

Accept God’s free gift of salvation. Don’t try to earn it.
For it is by grace you are saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9, 6:23

Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life and be the director (Lord) of your life.
Jesus says, ‘Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in’ – Revelations 3:20

YOU CAN TAKE THESE STEPS BY PRAYING

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 now as a Christian. Amen.

Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. – Romans 10:13
