How do accept Jesus Christ into my life?
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the only basis for God’s grace-gift of eternal life. Obtaining eternal life is simple as ABC.
A Admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent, turning away from your sin.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
B Believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and accept God’s gift of forgiveness from sin.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
C Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
“That if you confess 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
