How to Become a Christian
Simply put, becoming a Christian and knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior is not about “religion”, it is about a relationship. It is about a relationship with the God that not only created the universe, but came to earth in the form of a man, and died on a cross for the sins of all.
The Bible says that “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”(Romans 3:23). I know that I certainly fall into that category as a sinner. This was true both before I asked Christ into my life and since doing so. The difference is that now I fully know that I can receive forgiveness for the things I’ve done wrong. If you think you could never be forgiven, please consider the story of Paul the apostle. He was considered the greatest persecutor of Christians, and even stood by approvingly as young Stephen was stoned to death for proclaiming the truth about Jesus Christ. And yet after his conversion, Paul became the greatest missionary of the New Testament. He called himself the “Chief of Sinners” and yet he became the chief of the apostles.
The Bible says that “There is no one righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10)…so basically we’re all in the same boat. We are all deserving of an eternity separated from God, yet He loved us so much that He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for us. He committed no sins yet suffered and died on a cross, shedding his blood for our sins so that we could be forgiven.
I’ve been a Christian for over 35 years, and I still don’t understand it all, but I do clearly understand that I am a sinner. I know that I have been forgiven because I asked Christ to come into my life, to save me and to change me. Do I still fail him miserably at times? Yes. Does He still forgive me? Yes.
In 2007 I traveled to Russia as part of a ministry team and had the opportunity to worship with believers in Moscow and St. Petersburg. I could not speak their language, yet we were able to worship the same God together. Christ died for my sins, their sins, and yours. It does not matter where you were born or what you’ve done. He Loves You and wants to come into your life and have a personal relationship with YOU.

All you have to do is pray and ask Him to come into your life and forgive you of your sins. I can promise you that you will never regret it, for it is the wisest decision I ever made in my life.
