How Can I Begin a Relationship with Christ?

The Free Gift of God’s Salvation can be yours.


Each of us have a common problem.  The Bible calls it “sin”.

The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Yet, God loves you and wants to save you from sin and offer you a new life of hope.  Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrated  his own love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

You can receive this gift by grace through faith in Jesus.  In Ephesians 2:8-9, the Bible states, “For by grace are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God—not by works, lest any man boast.”

Faith is a decision of your heart demonstrated by the actions of your life.  Again, the Bible declares in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”


If you would be willing right now to believe Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins and to receive new life through Him, pray a prayer similar to this one thanking Him for the promise of eternal life:

“Dear God, I know I am a sinner.  I believe Jesus died to forgive me of my sins.  I now accept your offer of eternal life.  Thank you for forgiving me of all my sin.  Thank you for my new life.  From this day forward, I will choose to follow You.”

If you prayed this prayer, share your decision with a Christian friend or pastor.  If you are not already attending church, we invite you to worship and grow with us at Monaghan Baptist Church.  Following Christ’s example, ask to be baptized by immersion as a public profession of your faith in Christ for your salvation.
