Becoming a Christian

According to the Bible, it is as simple as the ABC’s.

A is for ADMIT. Admit you are a sinner.

  • “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
  • “As it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one." (Romans 3:10)
  • Repent by turning away from sin. “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)

    B is for BELIEVE. Believe that Jesus is God’s Son and accept God’s gift for forgiveness from sin.

  • “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
  • "But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
  • C is for CONFESS. Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

  • “If you confess with your month, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will
  • be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, with the mouth one confesses, resulting in

    salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)

    If you understand what you have read and would like to receive this forgiveness by trusting in Christ as Savior and Lord, just take a few moments and ask him. Below is just a sample prayer that can be used to ask for this forgiveness and salvation.

    “Dear Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and that You arose from the grave. I now ask You to forgive me of my sins and to save my soul. Amen.”

    If you have prayed this prayer, we would like to know that. Please e-mail us at whbchurch@bellsouth.net or feel free to call us at 256-773-6086. We would love to communicate with you more about this wonderful commitment you made.
