We at First Baptist Church believe that becoming a Christian is life’s most important decision. Here, from the Bible, is information that can help you become a Christian.

Things You must know:

•  Even if you live a good moral life full of good deeds, there is sin in your life that prevents you from knowing God, and going to heaven. (“All people have sinned…”Romans 3:23. “The wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23)

•  By demonstrating His love and sending His Son Jesus, God has provided a way for us to know Him and go to heaven. (“For God sent Christ Jesus to take the punishment for our sins.” Romans 3:25)

•  Only Christians have a relationship with God, and are guaranteed of a place in heaven. (“Jesus said, ‘No one can get to the Father, except by means of Me.’” John 14:6)

Things you must do:

•  You must change your life’s direction. (“Now change your mind and attitude to God and turn to Him so He can cleanse away your sins.” Acts 3:19)

•  You must place your faith in Jesus as your Savior and Lord. (“…Anyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16)

Sincerely desire to change, ask for God’s forgiveness, and trust in God’s Son Jesus Christ — and you will become a Christian!
