Salvation: How Do I Become A Christian

  • Step 1: Awareness
    You realize that you have sinned; you have done things that displease God. You have been following your own opinions and desires, not God’s commands. But you see that God loves you, that He is reaching out to help you.
  • Step 2: Repentance
    You repent, you feel sorry about the way you have lived. You make a commitment to turn away from every sinful way and follow the ways of God. (Acts 3:19)
  • Step 3: Baptism
    You are baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission, or washing away of your sins. In baptism your old life is symbolically “buried”, and you rise to live a new life. (Acts 2:38, Rom. 6:4)
  • Step 4: Spirit-Filled Living
    You receive the gift of God’s Spirit to live in you, enabling you to resist temptation and sin, to understand God’s power. (Acts 2:4)


    You continue to live every day in a way that is holy, seeking the leading of God in your words and actions. You enjoy His presence, His joy, His blessings as you reach out to meet the needs of others, and by your example, help them to know God.
