For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
(Agree that) Jesus is Lord (the one in charge) of your life.
…If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Savior.
…Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.
Believing means that you wholly trust in Jesus’ resurrection.
…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
To accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, sincerely pray (talk to God) from your heart, in your own words, or similar to the following prayer: I confess Jesus as Lord (one in charge) of my life. I believe in Your resurrection. I trust You wholly with my life, and ask You to help me live a full, meaningful life on earth, and with you eternally. Thank you God for loving me, a sinner. I repent (admit, renounce, and turn away) of my sins and ask for forgiveness. Amen (so be it)
The Bible promises the Holy Spirit as a holy compass to comfort and guide you.
Repent, and let each one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible also instructs Jesus’ followers to meet together for worship and encouragement to grow in Jesus Christ. By following through with baptism and uniting with a church, you will find new Christian friends and grow in your life in Christ.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess… let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds… let us not give up meeting together… but let us encourage one another…
