How do people become "saved" or "born again" Christians?
How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? Admit that you are a sinner. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
Know that God has already provided for your salvation. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son (Jesus Christ) that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Know that you cannot save yourself. "Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us." Titus 3:5
Repent of your sins. "Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish." Luke 13:3
Ask Jesus Christ to save you. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13 "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved." Acts 16:31
Proclaim Jesus before others. "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9, 10
You can be joyously "saved" and "born again" and receive eternal life right NOW, as millions of people worldwide have, when you receive Jesus Christ as your savior. Born-again Christians overwhelmingly look at their salvation as the most exciting event in their lives.
A guide on what to pray: "Dear father in heaven I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and rose again on the third day. I am willing to turn my from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal savior. I am willing by God's grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me."
