How to become a Christian:

The Roman Road to Salvation

 

 1. We must realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. None of us are worthy under God’s standards. 

 

·         Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”

 

2.      2. God gave us the way to be forgiven of our sins. He showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. 

 

·         Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 

 

3.      3. If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we repent of our sins, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will have eternal life. 

 

·         Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

 

4.      4. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you are saved. 

 

·         Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” 

 

5.      5. There are no other religious formulas or rituals. Just call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved! 

 

·         Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” 

 

6.      6. Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today. 

 

·         Romans 11:36 "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen."

 

7.      A Simple prayer:

 

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
