How to be saved in Jesus Christ:

God's gift of eternal life and salvation comes through faith and belief in The Lord Jesus Christ. He died on the cross as a payment for our sins! The debt has already been paid, and His gift of eternal life is free to all who choose to accept it. If you believe in your heart that Jesus is the son of the living God, and that he died, and rose again on the third day, then he is waiting for you.

"How can I become a Christian?"

It's very simple; just pray this prayer to Jesus:

Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner before you.
I confess my sins to you and ask you to forgive me.
I believe You are the son of the living God and that You died,
were buried, and rose again on the third day.
I ask you to come into my heart and life.
Please Jesus save me.
I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
I pray this to you in your holy name, Amen.

If you truly believe what you just prayed, then you now have a home in Heaven and have His gift of eternal life. Congratulations!

Here's Biblical proof of your salvation:

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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
— Romans 10:9-10
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
— 1 John 5:13
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
— John 10:27-29

"But what if I say this prayer, and am still not sure?"

Let nothing hold you back from coming to Jesus.

Here are some common misbeliefs about coming to Christ, and being forgiven:

"I haven't done enough good things in my life yet."

The plain and simple truth is that we cannot earn our salvation by good deeds, or doing good things in our life. Christ died for all of us when he took on the sins of the world, and shed his precious blood. He died so that we can live. This is the promise, and guarantee of eternal life and forgiveness of sins when we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as our personal savior. Look at what the Bible tells us about this:

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. — Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. — John 3:3

"I've just sinned too much; I've done too many bad things to be forgiven."

Not true. It's not too late. You can be forgiven of your sins, no matter how great, because Jesus Christ surrendered his perfect life and died on the cross so that you may be forgiven and have eternal life with him.

If you feel you’ve sinned “too much” you’re in good company — with not only everybody in the world — but many important men in The Bible!

1. Abraham was a liar.
2. Moses was a murderer.
3. Jacob was a deceiver and schemer. God chose Jacob as the nation of Israel.
4. King David, the man who God proclaimed to be: “a man after mine own heart” (Acts 13:22), was involved in a conspiracy to commit murder. David plotted and commanded a murder of one of his own soldiers to cover his own sin of adultery with the man’s wife (Read about this in 2 Samuel 11).
5. Peter was hot-tempered and willful yet God chose him to be the rock that His church is built upon.
6. Matthew was a tax collector.
7. Saul of Tarsus was a vicious persecutor of God’s people. His dedicated mission was to destroy and imprison as many Christians as possible. But God chose him (Acts 9) to be his vessel to bring the gospel to the gentiles, kings, and to Israel (Acts 9:15). God changed his name to Paul, and Paul went on to write most of the New Testament.

So no, you haven’t sinned too much to be forgiven. Don’t look back, look forward. All you have to do is confess before God your sins; your sins of the past, sins of the present, and go to Him and confess the sins you’ll commit in the future. Confess each sin as it happens. The Apostle Paul struggled with sin: I recommend reading all of Acts chapter 7, and in particular verses 14-15. Paul gives us all reassurance that we aren't perfect, but through the grace of Jesus Christ, all things are possible.

God forgives us our sins. Look at what He promises to us in His word:

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
— Hebrews 8:12

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
— Psalms 103:12

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
— Hosea 14:4
