How to Follow Christ and Become a Christian

1 God’s Plan – Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life.

The BIBLE says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but will have eternal life.” - John 3:16

2 Our Problem – Sin and Separation

Our sins have separated us from God, making it impossible for us to experience His peace and life.

The BIBLE says, “For all have sinned and are continually falling short of God’s glory.” – Romans 3:23

3 God’s Solution – The Cross

God’s love and grace bridge the gap that separates us from Him. When Jesus died on the cross and rose from death, He paid thepenalty for our sins.

The BIBLE says, “Jesus personally carried away our sins in His body on the cross…” - 1 Peter 2:24

4 Our Response – Believe in Christ

We cross the bridge into God’s family when we receive Christ through admitting our need for Him, confessing our sinfulness and placing our trust in Him alone for our salvation.

The BIBLE says, "But to all who believed and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.” - John 1:12

5 God’s Assurance – Salvation in Christ

You can know that your sins are forgiven and you have eternal life in Christ because God has declared it to be true!

The Bible says, “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” - Romans 10:9, 13
