WHAT’S NEXT?

If you are ready to receive Christ, but have not yet prayed to receive Jesus as your savior, you can pray the following prayer commonly known as the Sinners Prayer:

“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will.”

Congratulations on your decision to follow Christ! You’re at the very beginning of a new life-one filled with grace, peace, and joy that can only come from knowing God. This information is here to help you move forward in the next steps in your relationship with Him.

SHARE YOUR FAITH
It is important to tell someone about your new faith. Matthew 5:14-15 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”

PRAY DAILY
Praying daily is the key to spiritual development. Regardless of how strong and mature you may become as a Christian, you will never be so spiritual and holy that you will not need to pray. It’s not hard to pray…just talk to the Lord. You don’t need any fancy words; just talk like you would normally talk to anyone. Also don’t feel bad if you don’t know how to pray…even the disciples had to ask Jesus how to pray! Luke 11:1 It is easy to remember ACTS:

A-for Adoration: Praise and worship God for who He is.
C-for Confession: Confess daily your sins to Him. Ask Forgiveness for our mistakes.
T-for Thanks: Be thankful. Thank him for what He has done for you and that He has saved you.
S-for Supplication: Ask God to supply all your needs and the needs of others.
Close your prayer in Jesus’ name.

Jesus says in John 14:13 “And whatsoever ye ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “ Make a commitment to pray daily…you will grow so much as a Christian if you do…and remember, God wants you to talk to him…He loves you!

 

SPEND TIME IN GOD’S WORD
Let the Bible renew your mind. It is so important to read His word that brings life! In the Bible, Jesus said in John 6:36 “The words I have spoken to you-they are full of the Spirit and life.” If you don’t have a Bible, or need one that is easier to understand, we would love to give you one.
