Becoming a Christian

Every person can become a Christian (a Christ follower) and be a child of the one true God! This is all you need to do:

1. First you must honestly realize you have sinned against God who is pure and holy.
2. Then truly choose to repent (tell Him you are sorry and turn from sin).
3. Accept that Jesus Christ was crucified as the sacrifice for your sins, making things right with God.
4. And finally, invite Him into your life as your Lord and Master, committing to follow Jesus and His ways.

Salvation (being rescued from the effect of sin so you go to heaven) cannot be earned. It is a free gift given to those who follow these steps. God wants Christians to be in fellowship with other Christians so they are accountable to one another for teaching, correction, care and encouragement.  In this way we all mature as students and followers of Jesus making Him Lord of our lives.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord; which was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell [that is, the place of the departed righteous]; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic [universal] church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and life everlasting. Amen
