Step 1: Know that God loves you and wants to give you a new life.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Step 2: See that your sin has separated you from God and the life He desires to give you. 

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10, 23).

Step 3: Realize that Jesus Christ died for you, and rose again so that He might give you eternal life. He died for you.

“God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).  He was buried and rose again.


Step 4: Confess your sins to God and turn away from them to serve God faithfully.

“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19).

Step 5: Receive Jesus Christ by faith, accepting Him alone as your Lord and Savior.


“As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12).

Here is how you can receive Christ.

You can receive Christ now by faith as you ask through prayer (talking to God). The following prayer may help you say what is in your heart.

“Lord, I cannot save myself. I know that I have sinned, and I am sorry that the way I have lived has separated me from You. I receive Jesus Christ by faith as my Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus, thank You for dying for my sins. I accept You now as Lord of my life. Help me to live for You and to be all that You want me to be.”

Can you sincerely pray this prayer? If so express it to God now, and Christ will come into your life as He has promised.

When you receive Christ, you are born again.
