Accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior

Accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the most important decision anyone ever makes. Although it cost God His One and Only Son to save you, you may accept Christ by sincerely following these A.B.C. steps …

Admit you have a problem called SIN.

Sin is anything that makes God sad and separates you from His perfect will for your life.

  • Confess to God you are a sinner.
  • Repent and turn away from your sins.
    • Romans 3:23 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
    • Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    • 1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    • Acts 3:19 – Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,

Believe God’s answer for sin is Christ’s death on the cross.

Trust that Jesus is God’s Son and that God sent Him to save people from their sins.

  • Romans 5:8 – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
  • Acts 4:12 – Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
  • Acts 16:31 – So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
  • John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
  • John 4:6 – Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

Commit.

Give your life to Jesus. Ask Him to be your Savior and Lord.

  • Romans 10:13 – For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
  • Romans 10:9-10 – 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
  • Matthew 16:24 – Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
  • Luke 9:23 – Take Up the Cross and Follow Him

Prayer


“Dear God, I admit that I have sinned and that my sin separates me from You. I am sorry for my sin. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me so my sin can be forgiven. I also believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive. God, please forgive me. I commit my life to Jesus as my Savior and Lord. I will obey You and live for You the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

If you prayed this prayer with all your heart…
