Getting Started In Your Faith

Getting started in your faith:

  • How do you know that you will go to Heaven when you die?
  • How do you know that your sins are forgiven?
  • What will happen to a person who has never accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior?
  • Is God going to judge me? Is He going to make me face my sin?

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. "God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 Jesus said, "I came so that you would have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10 

Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God. "All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23  Sin is choosing to say or do or think things that are against God's plan. "The wages of sin is death. but the gift of God is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 

Jesus Christ Died for our Sins

Jesus Christ is God's Son. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people." For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus," 1 Timothy 2:5 "

We must receive Christ:

"Behold, I stand at the door and Knock, If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:30. Would you like to give your life over to Jesus Christ right now? If so, you can pray the following prayer and accept Jesus as your Savior:

I know that I am sinner. I want to turn from my sins, and ask for your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe He died for my sins and that you raised him to life. I want Him to come into my heart and take control of my life. I want to trust Jesus as my Savior and follow him as my Lord from this day forward.

Now that I’m a Christian what does God expect of me?

  • Do I need to be baptized to go to Heaven?
  • Do I have to join the church to make it to Heaven?
  • What happens if I sin after I’m saved; will God still love me?
  • Do I need to read my Bible? Do I need to pray?
