How to become a born-again Christian
JIM ST. MARIE

First: The Bible says you must acknowledge that you are a sinner. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:10, as it is written, “There is none righteous, no not one.”
Second: The Bible says: “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” Luke 13:3-5. Acts 3:19, "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”
Third: The Bible says we must confess our sins to God. I John 1:9, “If we confess our sins He (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.”
Fourth: The Bible says we must believe and receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour. Romans 10:9-13, “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thy heart the God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead thou shalt be saved.”
God wants to save you! He will never turn anyone away! Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:21, “And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you are genuine and want to be saved, you must turn your life over to Christ Jesus. Christ longs to have a relationship with you.
After being born-again, start reading your Bible. A good place to start is the book of John.
The Prayer for Salvation:
Dear Jesus, I want to become a born-again Christian. I confess to you that I am a sinner. I ask you to forgive me for my sins and to blot them out from your memory. I believe you came and died on the cross for my sins. Please come into my life and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life.
