How do I become a Christian?

  1. We have sinned. Romans 3:23 says "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God". We have all sinned, no one has lived a perfect life. 

  2. Sin separates us from God, we are all lost. Romans 6:23 says "The wages of sin is death." The price for our sin is death and eternal separation from God. 

  3.  But God has done something for us that we could not do for ourselves. Romans 6:23 continues by saying "But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ." Jesus offers eternal life to those who put their faith in Him. 

  4.  God loves us and proved it by allowing his son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. Romans 5:28 says "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus lived a perfect life, yet chose to pay the price for our sins. 

  5.  If we trust in what Christ did for us, and put our total faith in Him, we will be saved from our sins. Romans 10:9-10 says "That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved, for with the heart man believes resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." You can pray right now and commit your life to Jesus. 

If you made a decision to place your trust in Jesus, let us know! Our church staff would love to follow up with you!

Why Get Baptized?

  1. … because Jesus was baptized and wants us to baptize others. In Matthew 3:16, we learn that Jesus Himself was baptized before He started His ministry on earth. If the Son of God pursued baptism, so should we. Later, Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19-20 He wants us to spread His message of love. He told us to continue baptizing and being baptized! Okay, Jesus. We’re happy to obey.

  2. … because you’ve decided to follow Jesus and you want people to know. Becoming a follower of Christ is the best decision you’ll ever make. When you make a life-changing decision like this, you want to tell everyone about the new hope you’ve found in Jesus! You want to let people know you believe God is real. Our faith should be personal, but not private. Baptism is about going public with your faith.

  3.  … because baptism is a powerful symbol of what Jesus did for us. When we’re baptized, we’re reminded of what Jesus did for us. When we go down into the water, we’re reminded of Jesus’ death on the cross and His payment for our sins. But when we come out of the water, we’re reminded that three days later, Jesus rose from the dead2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us that if we’re in Christ, we’re new creations. Baptism reminds us that the old is gone, and the new has come!

Remember: getting baptized is important, but not because it saves you. The grace of God through faith in Jesus is what saves you. Getting baptized is all about telling the world about the change that’s already happened inside of you. If you’ve decided to get baptized, it’s time to party! Make sure you invite your friends and family to celebrate with you.
