Why become a Christian?


In the beginning God made two perfect people, Adam and Eve. He wanted them to be His friends and to look after the world. Sadly, they chose to disobey Him. This Sin ruined their relationship with God and affected the whole of the human race for ever. The things that each of us do wrong separate us from God. God loves us and wants to be our friend, but we can't enjoy a relationship with Him while there is sin in our lives. You may try to please Him by doing good deeds, but they'll never be good enough and they won't cancel out your sin. You're imprisoned by it.


So How do you get rid of your sin?

  • The answer is you can't! God has to do it for you. 

  • That's why He sent Jesus into the world. 

  • Jesus lived a perfect life and deserved to be totally accepted by God. 

  • Instead, He allowed God to punish Him on the cross for you. 

  • You deserve to die for your sin, but Jesus died in your place. 

  • By rising from the dead He demonstrated that He's still alive and will give you eternal life if you come to Him.


To become a Christian you must:


  • Admit to God that you've sinned against Him. Tell Him that you're really sorry for the things that you've done wrong and that you're going to stop doing them.

  • Believe that when Jesus Christ died on the cross, He took the punishment for your sin.

  • Ask Jesus to come into your life, take away your sin and give you eternal life.


You might find this prayer helpful:

  • "Lord Jesus Christ. 

  • I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life (take a few moments to ask his forgiveness for anything particular that is on your conscience). 

  • Please forgive me. 

  • I now turn from everything which I know is wrong. 

  • Thank you that you died on the cross for me so that I could be forgiven and set free. 

  • Thank you that you offer me forgiveness and the gift of your Spirit. I now receive that gift. 

  • Please come into my life by your Holy Spirit to be with me for ever. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Amen"
