If you have not accepted Jesus Christ into your life and would like to do so.
Say the following prayer out loud and believe in your heart that you have been saved.
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. I believe in my heart that you died on the cross for my sins, and rose from the dead that I might have eternal life. With your help I can leave my past mistakes behind. I accept your free gifts of forgiveness for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Lord and Savior. I believe that I am truly a new person in you, help me Lord Jesus to be the kind of person you want me to be. Amen.
So then just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him,
strengthened the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
