Becoming a Christian

The gospel in one verse - John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

You cannot work for salvation, it is a gift - Ephesians 2:8, 9

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no-one can boast."

A suggested prayer

Lord Jesus Christ I receive you and your free gift of salvation. I acknowledge that you died on the cross for me and that your blood was shed for my sins. I turn from my past with thanks that I am forgiven. I commit myself to you and I want to know you are in my life. With great excitement I look forward to learning more about you.

The response of Jesus - Luke 5:20

"Friend, your sins are forgiven."
