New to Christ

You were created  to have a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus Christ.

Jesus is our Savior, our healer, and our friend. He was God's answer to humanity's desperate need for salvation. God, because of His great love for us, wrapped Himself in humanity and came to earth as a simple man—Jesus. John 3:16, one of the most famous scriptures, illustrates just this, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only son. That whoever believes in Him, will not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus became the bridge between mankind and God so that we can have a relationship with the Father.

STEP 1

God Loves You

He has a plan for you!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His once an only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16)

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”- a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10)

 

STEP 2

The Problem- Sin

People are sinful and separated from God.

We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).  The good news?

STEP 3

The Sacrifice

God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)

STEP 4

Believe in Christ

We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins-that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the prayer along with the video to accept Christ as your savior.
