What must I do to be saved ?
(that is - How do I become a Christian?)
1. I must acknowledge that I am a helpless sinner in the sight of God.
“All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”
“Your iniquities have separated you from your God; you sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”
2. I must believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save me from the punishment my sin deserves.
“The Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”
1 Peter 3:18
3. I must place my trust in Christ alone as my Saviour for sin, obey him as my Lord.
“Yet to all who receive him (Jesus), to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to be become children of God.”
St. John 1:12
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”
