Are you searching for more?
Do you want to ask Jesus to save you from your sins and transform your life? Are you looking for a way to do that? We have listed a few simple steps that will lead you into a life-giving, life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
1. Admit that you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
We have all sinned. We have all done things we regret or that we are ashamed of, but there is hope and forgiveness in Jesus! The Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) We cannot have a right relationship with Him if there is sin in our lives. But there is hope, He made a way into a new life by sending His Son Jesus to die on a cross and take our punishment for our sins.
2. Believe that Jesus is Lord and that he died on the cross and rose from the grave.
“But God demonstrates His own love for us, that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Jesus died for you! He knows the details of your life and He sees you! He wants to have a real authentic relationship with you! Jesus lived a perfect sinless life and yet he took our punishment on the Cross. The Bible tells us that God loved the world so much that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life (John 3:16).
3. Commit to follow Jesus.
“Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
When you commit to follow Jesus and ask him to forgive you, he responds with arms wide open. He is waiting for you! He wants you! Put your faith and trust in Jesus today. Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior and your life will never be the same.
If you would like to ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins pray a simple prayer like this:
Heavenly Father, I admit that I've done wrong. I believe that you sent Jesus to die on a cross to pay for my sins and give me forgiveness. Make me new. I surrender my life to you. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
If you just prayed this prayer, we are so excited! This is the best decision you will ever make! Now, that you have asked Jesus to save you, what’s next? We would love to connect with you. If you can fill out the form below and one of our pastors will contact you! In the meantime, here are some practical things that you can do to grow in your new faith!
1. Read the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word. He gave it to us as a tool to use to walk through this life. It’s important to read the Bible to know how to live the way that God wants you to live. If you have a tablet, phone, or mobile device the You-version Bible app is a great tool that offers the Bible, devotionals, and other resources. Download it today – it’s free! We would also recommend starting to read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) This will give you a glimpse into the life of Jesus!
Prayer is simply talking to God - just you and God having a conversation.
3. Get connected in a Bible-believing church
Another great way to grow in faith is to be connected to other believers. Find a church and get involved!
