HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

Understand Christian Beliefs

  • Christmas: Celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ because He is the Son of God.
  • Good Friday: Jesus Christ died on the cross for man’s sins so that man’s sins can be forgiven.
  • Easter: Jesus Christ was resurrected on the third day and therefore defeated the sting of death. Anyone who puts his/her faith in Him will have eternal life.

    23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
  • Trust: We must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins and was raised on the third day.
    John 3:16 (ESV)
    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
  • Receive: We must receive Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior and to surrender to His leading in our lives.
    John 1:12 (ESV)
    12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
