Become a Christian - It's Straightforward and Life-Changing!
Becoming a Christian is simply to believe that through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ you receive forgiveness of your sins (wrongdoings). It is by faith alone, free, no work required! (Ephesians 2:7-10; Romans 3:21-26; Romans 10:9-11).
Christ’s sacrifice ensures that we are not separated from God. As a result Christians can pray with confidence and be assured of salvation! This is because God views a Christian as without fault because of the forgiveness offered by Christ’s death on the cross.
