how to become
A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST
Becoming a follower of Christ is more than saying a prayer and being baptized, it is surrendering self to Christ as Lord/boss/ruler. We can confess our genuine desire to surrender to Christ when we:
- Admit you are a sinner and cannot solve your own sin problem.
- Declare your complete belief that the Jesus of the Bible is real and God’s only solution to restoring you into relationship with God
- Turn from sin and self to God.
Many people make such a commitment by sincerely telling God something like this: “Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinful person and in need of your forgiveness. I believe that You died to pay the penalty for my sin. I want to turn from my sin and follow You instead. I know Jesus is the only way for me to have a relationship with You, Oh God. So with all I am I surrender to Jesus as my Lord and Savior.”
Once you have made such a commitment, you will want to tell us or another group of Christians and they can help you with the next steps you need to take as far as connecting to a Church and Baptism.
Making such a commitment gives you not only eternal life in heaven but peace with God this very moment.
