Have you ever wondered what it takes to call yourself a Christian? It's not as complicated as you may think.
Trusting Jesus as the way to God is not an exclusive path, it's completely inclusive. No matter who you are, what you've done, where you were born or the color of your skin, Jesus is the way to have a relationship with God. Everybody's invited. Everybody's included. Everybody's important.
So how do you actually become a Christian? Just a few simple steps: scripture reveals, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 That's it!
Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart and you are accepted, forgiven and your relationship begins. Do that and you're a Christian.
You don't have to be a better person first. You just begin to follow Jesus and what he says and gradually, over time God's love and his word changes you as you follow Jesus. You are changed because you are loved, not in order to be loved.
If you've decided to trust Jesus and start a relationship, we'd love to hear from you!
