3 simple steps to become a follower of Jesus…
SORRY God for the sin and wrongdoing in my life.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
THANK YOU Jesus for dying on the cross, so that I could be forgiven.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
PLEASE be my Savior and Lord.
That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
If you want to accept Jesus Christ into your life just pray this prayer:
Dear God, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. I believe Jesus was who He said He was and proved it by rising from death. I want to discover and begin following Your plan and purpose for my life. I want to get to know You personally. Thank You, Jesus Christ, for dying for me and forgiving all my sins. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for Your free gift of eternal life.
