To receive Christ as your Savior and Lord you can follow the ABC’s…
A – which stands for ADMIT. You must admit that you are a sinner who needs a Savior. The Bible calls this confession and confession means you agree with God about your sin. "There is no one righteous, not even one." (Rom 3:10)
B – which stands for BELIEVE. You must believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who lovingly died on the cross for your sins and was raised from the dead. Romans 10:9 declares that "if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Jesus is the only way to heaven (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Tim 2:5).
C – which stands for CHANGE. It's a change of mind that leads to a change of action. The Bible calls this repentance, which means to turn. You must turn from running your own life and allow the Lord to run your life from now on. Turn from your sin, the flesh, the world, and the devil, and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ in true righteousness and holiness (Eph 4:24).
(Key Scriptures: John 1:12; 1 John 1:9; Psalm 32:5; John 3:16; Acts 16:31; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30)
Also, you can follow the “Romans Road” to receive Christ: read these Scriptures from the book of Romans in this order: Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8; 10:9; 12:1-2.
Pray this prayer IN SINCERITY:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I admit that I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe in Jesus that He died for my sins and was raised from the dead. I repent of my sins. I turn from running my own life, and now I ask you to run it. I invite Your Holy Spirit into my heart and life. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
If you prayed this prayer, you should be baptized next and join a local church. Come see us this Sunday morning and we can help you begin to make Jesus your Lord (Savior and Lord) – this is the journey of discipleship.
