How to Become a Christian


You must acknowledge yourself to be a sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:23), unable to correct your condition by yourself (Proverbs 14:12; Ephesians 2:1-3; 1 Corinthians 2:14), and in need of a Savior (Romans 3:24; 6:23).


You must believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to be the Savior you just admitted to needing (1 Peter 3:18; Colossians 1:19-20; Ephesians 2:4-7).


You must personally receive Jesus Christ into your life by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9), believing that He takes away sin (1 Peter 2:24).


Saving faith demands that you promptly turn away from sin. The Bible calls this act repentance (Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30-31). Repentance is followed by public acknowledgment of your faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible calls this act confession (Matthew 10:32-33; Romans 10:9). Confession is followed by the act of baptism, which is immersion in water (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; 1 Peter 3:18-22; Acts 8:35-38).


This is a personal decision between you and God - but we would like the joy of assisting you in this eternally important matter. If you have not received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and have questions or would like assistance, please call the church office (480-838-2424) for an appointment with one of our pastors or elders.
