ABC's of Becoming a Christian

The decision to become a Christian is the most important decision a person can make. We invite you to read the ABC's of Becoming a Christian!

Admit - that you need a right relationship with God.

Pride keeps us from doing some of the most important things in life. Don't let your pride keep you from the most important thing in this life and the next!


As the Scriptures say:

There is no one who always does what is right, not even one. Romans 3:10, NCV

All have sinned and are not good enough for God's glory, Romans 3:23, NCV

Believe - that God's Son Jesus Christ makes possible your having a right relationship with God.

There is nothing that you can do, no matter how good or great, to ever
restore your relationship with God.


God was using Christ to restore his relationship with humanity. 2 Corinthians 5:19, NCV

Confess - your sin to God and accept His forgiveness.


Everyone of us chooses to live our lives like we want to, taking charge, ignoring God, pleasing ourselves. That's what separates us from God. That's why we need His forgiveness.


You can have forgiveness of your sins through Jesus. Acts 13:38, NCV

Dedicate - yourself as a fully devoted follower of Christ.


Receiving God's gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ will set you in a
direction exactly opposite of the one you've been going in because now
you're following Christ.


Jesus said to all of them, "If people want to follow me, they must give up
the things they want. They must be willing to give up their lives daily to
follow me."
Luke 9:23

Express - your faith in Christ publicly.


What God does for you in His Son Jesus Christ is the greatest thing that
will ever happen to you. It requires a clear confession that you have given
Him your very life.


If you use your mouth to say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe in your
heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9
