You probably have an opinion about Jesus. Maybe you think He's a great teacher or a prophet. Maybe you think He didn't exist at all. Whatever you believe, we can probably agree that Jesus changed things.
We believe that Jesus has made a way for you.
Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well." (John 14:6)
No matter who you are, what you've done, where you were born or the color of your skin, Jesus is the way for you to have a relationship with God. Everyone is invited. Everyone is included. Everyone is important.
If you think you are the exception, think again. Jesus loves you.
So how do you actually become a Christian?
Look at what the Scriptures say:
"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
That's the truth.
Confess with your mouth. Believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord... that God raised him from the dead, and your sins are forgiven and your relationship with God has begun.
You may be thinking, "But don't I have to be a better person first?"
No. You don't. You don't change in order to gain God's love; you change because you have experienced His love.
When you trust Jesus as your Savior, you walk into the fullness of God's love. Gradually, over time, His love changes you as you follow Jesus. You change because you are loved... not in order to be loved.
Through Jesus' death on the cross and his being raised from the dead, He took all of your wrong and gave you all of His right.
If you believe (trust; depend) and commit to follow Jesus, your life will never be the same. Check this out to help make more sense of it.
Believing in Jesus is the first step on a journey of abundant life. It is not the end of your race, but just the beginning.
