How to get to know Jesus as your Savior, Lord and Friend
The most important thing we do at Antioch Fellowship is to help people come to know Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that “being born again” is the only way to make it into heaven.
Sin has separated every person from God
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Because Christ died for you, you can come to God
1 Peter 3:18
For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
You need to repent of your sin
But unless you repent, you too will all perish.
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord
You need to believe what God said and confess Him as Lord
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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
You are a new person!
1 John 5:11-13
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
What do I do next?
Because God loves you He would like to become your friend by introducing you to His Son, Jesus. You can’t earn salvation. You don’t have to do anything. Jesus has already provided a way for you by dying on the cross for your sins. It doesn’t matter what you have done, all you have to do is ask Him to come into your life.
You can pray the following prayer (or pray in your own words):
Jesus, I ask you to forgive me for everything that I have done in my life that is sin. Please come into my life and make me a new person. I want to make you my Savior. I also want to make you Lord of my life. Thank you for not giving up on me, but for dying so that I can live. Amen
