How Do I Accept Christ?
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
Each week, we extend an opportunity for a person to respond to the gospel during one of three invitations:
Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive forgiveness of your sins. (Romans 10:9-10)
Anyone who has accepted Christ, but has strayed in their walk with Him, can rededicate themselves to Christ. (1 John 1:9)
Membership is extended to anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. (Hebrews 10:25)
Here is how you can receive Christ:
Admit your need
(I am a sinner)
SIN Everyone is a sinner separated by God and in darkness. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
Be willing to turn from your sins (repent) (Luke 13:5)
BLOOD OF JESUS While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. God loved us so much that He gave His son to die for us.
Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave. (John 3:16)
PURITY CLEANSING In order to begin your new life in Christ (Be Saved), You must believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins and declare that you accept Him as Savior.
Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit (Romans 10:10)
CHRISTIAN GROWTH Grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
(2 Corinthians 5:17)
Receive Him as Lord and Savior
HEAVEN Death means separation from GOD forever. We have the promise of eternal life that comes by trusting in Jesus Christ!
