How to Accept Christ in Your Life

You can invite Christ into your life right now

God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross for my sins. Right now I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life and I receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Amen.”

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart?

If it does, we invite you to pray this prayer right now, and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.

After watching the video if you’re still not convinced that it’s just that simple, we invite you to contact us or join us for any of our weekly services to learn more. Please don’t wait until it’s too late!

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:8-10

Once you have received Christ

The moment that you received Christ by faith, as an act of the will, many things happened, including the following:

Christ came into your life (Revelation 3:20 ; Colossians 1:27).
Your sins were forgiven (Colossians 1:14).
You became a child of God (John 1:12).
You received eternal life (John 5:24).
You began the great adventure for which God created you (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:18).

Can you think of anything more wonderful that could happen to you than receiving Christ? Would you like to thank God in prayer right now for what He has done for you? By thanking God, you demonstrate your faith.

To grow spiritually and enjoy your new life to the fullest…

Spiritual growth results from trusting Jesus Christ. “The righteous man shall live by faith” (Galatians 3:11). A life of faith will enable you to trust God increasingly with every detail of your life, and to practice the following:

Go to God in prayer daily (John 15:7).
Read God’s Word daily (Acts 17:11); begin with the Gospel of John.
Obey God moment by moment (John 14:21).
Witness for Christ by your life and words (Matthew 4:19; John 15:8).
Trust God for every detail of your life (1 Peter 5:7).
Holy Spirit – allow Him to control and empower your daily life and witness (Galatians 5:16,17; Acts 1:8).

God’s Word instructs us not to forsake “the assembling of ourselves together” (Hebrews 10:25). Several logs burn brightly together; but put one aside on the cold hearth and the fire goes out. So it is with your relationship with other Christians.

If you do not belong to a church, do not wait to be invited. Take the initiative; call the pastor of a nearby church where Christ is honored and His Word is preached. Start this week, and make plans to attend regularly. If you live in the Upstate South Carolina area, the Pastor and members of Concord Baptist Church welcome you to join us this Sunday at 9am for Sunday School and 10:15am for Morning Worship.

May God bless you and keep you in your new walk.
