Receiving Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior is the most important act you or anyone else will ever do.
To receive Christ
- You must acknowledge yourself to be a helpless sinner in God's sight and in need of a Savior (Romans 3:23).
- You must believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood to be the very Savior you have just admitted needing (I Peter 3:18) and rose from the dead having accomplished the defeat of sin (Romans 4:5; I Corinthians 15:3-4).
- You must personally repent of your sin (Romans 2:4) and confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord over your life (Romans 10:9-10), believing that, as God, He can and will forgive your sins (John 1:1, 12; Mark 2:1-13), and grant you eternal life.
