How to Begin a Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ

Human beings were created to have fellowship with God. The Bible teaches that all human beings have sinned and are separated from having a loving relationship with God. 

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Out of His great love for us, Jesus went to the cross in order to pay the price for the sins of the world.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

When you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you repent, or turn away from your sin, and ask Jesus to save you and come into your heart. Because of faith in His shed blood, you are cleansed and “born  again” or made new. This is how you receive God’s free gift of eternal life, and how you begin an abundant life of knowing Christ.

How to Pray for Salvation:

Father, I admit I am a sinner and need to be saved. I repent of my sin and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe that  Jesus went to the cross and died for me, and that He rose from the dead and is now on the throne in Heaven. I put my faith in His shed blood to cleanse me from all sin, and I ask Him to be my personal Lord and Savior. I ask this, in Jesus name,  Amen.

Begin Your Exciting New Life in Christ

After you have prayed and asked Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour, give thanks to the Lord and simply trust that He has answered your prayer and will never leave nor forsake you. Begin to pray, and spend time regularly talking to God, read the Bible and learn about Christ, and find a Bible believing Church where you can worship God and fellowship with other believers.
