1. What Are Reasons to Become a Christian?

There are countless benefits to becoming a Christian. The Bible talks about dozens of things that happen when you accept Jesus:

  • Your sins are forgiven, and you feel the weight of shame lifted.
  • You experience the incredible love of God
  • God gives you incredible peace no matter your circumstances in life
  • You get lasting happiness in God that your heart has longed for
  • You become a child of God
  • Your name is written in the Lamb's book of life
  • You will go to heaven when you die, and be with God forever

2. How Do I Become a Christian?

Receiving God's love for you is as simple as praying a simple, biblical prayer of faith in Jesus Christ. Pray this in your heart to God:

"God, I confess my sins to you
I believe in Jesus, and what He did on the cross for me
Today, I turn from my sins, and I follow Jesus
Jesus, please save me, forgive me, and be my leader and Lord"

If you prayed this prayer, God did just that! He forgave you of your sins, He adopted you into His family.

You can go through all the motions, and still not be a Christian. You must put your faith in Jesus Christ to experience God's forgiveness and love.
