Becoming A Christian

To become a Christian a person must first realize that he or she is "lost" totally estranged from God, seperated from God by a sinful nature. Read Roman 3:23 "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."
 
A person alone can not reconcile the lost relationship bewteen himself or herself and God. To provide a remedy, God sent his one and only Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life God demands.  Roman 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death,but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
 
Although humanity through sin has seperated itself from God, the sacrifice
of Jesus on the cross bridged that gap.  Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates
his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners Christ died for us."
 
All that God asks is that a man or woman repent of his or her sins, turn from them and accept the sacrafice Christ made on the cross for those sins. Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in you heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
 
God promises in the Bible that anyone who accepts Christ as Savior
shall be saved. Romans 10:13 "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved." A person who accepts Christ as Savior should follow him
in believer's baptism by immersion in water and join the fellowship of a church
of like minded believers. Matthew 28:19 "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."
