What Does It Mean To Be A Christian?

You may have heard about God all your life.

You may be a church member.  

You may have wondered, "Am I really a Christian?"

Maybe you've had doubts about it.  

Maybe you've been to a church before,
or perhaps you've been to church since you were a child,
or your mother was a Christian,
so you say "...that makes me Christian too"...

but none of that matters
unless you make a personal decision
to truly follow Christ.

Don't click away without being sure...

Here's How...

Believe In His Sacrifice for You.

Believe that Jesus Christ died to pay for our sins and that He rose and is alive today.  
"If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  (Rom. 10:9)
 

Accept God's Free Gift of Salvation.

Don't try to earn it.  
You get there just by accepting God's free gift.  
Our relationship to God is not restored by anything we do, but on the basis on what Jesus Christ already did for us on Calvary.
"It is by grace you are saved through faith and it is not of yourselves.  It is the gift of God.  Not of works so no one can boast."  (Eph. 2:8)  
 

Invite Jesus Christ to Come into your life as Lord.

No longer are we calling the shots in our lives.  
Jesus Christ is the King of our lives.  (1 Tim. 6:14-15)
And Not only does He know what's best for us (Rom. 8:28)
He transforms us into who we are meant to be (Philip. 2:13)
"To all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.  (Jn. 1:12-13)

You can take these steps right now,

by praying a simple prayer 

of commitment to God
(as long as you genuinely mean it!)


"Jesus,

Thank you for making me
and loving me
even when I've ignored You
and gone my own way.
 
I realize I need You in my life
and I'm sorry for my sins.  
I ask You to forgive me. 
 
Thank You for dying on the cross for me. 
I accept Your gift of salvation.   
Please help me to understand it more. 
 
I want to follow You from now on. 
Please come into my life and make me a new person inside and out.  
Please help me to grow as a Christian.

Amen."

What Now?
Now You're Family.

We become Christians by committing our life to Christ.  
But that decision also makes us part of God's family.  

Ephesians 2:19 says: "You are a member of God's very own family and you belong in God's household with every other Christian."

Every Christian needs a church family.  

In fact, God has given us at least 30 instructions in the New Testament that you can't fulfill unless you choose to be a part of a local church.  
Living for Jesus means you belong somewhere.  
In addition to the nuclear family He has given you,
you now have a spiritual family,
that's designed to walk with you, cry with you, and  encourage you, in every season of life.  
It's an incredible blessing that every Christian is intended to experience.  

If you don't have a local church home we invite you to become part of ours!
