HOW TO BECOME A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN


Believe in Christ


God is offering the free Gift of Life to all of us every single day. It is the Ultimate gift of Salvation and Eternal Life that is offered to us with no strings attached. God knows that through our own works we would never be able to earn the right to heaven and to atone for our sins, so He sacrificed His own Son Jesus Christ. Jesus shed His precious Blood for all our sins - past, present and future - and through His death He opened up a gateway for us, so we would no longer be bound by the chains of death, but could rather following His path to heaven.



All we need to do to receive the gift of Salvation and Eternal Life is believe in Him with a true and open heart. He expects us to give up control of our own lives and leave all guidance up to Him. That sounds hard, but it really is not. Once we have decided to let Jesus enter into our hearts, His Holy Spirit begins the transformation process and we will be changed completely. That does not necessarily mean that life will get any easier. We will still have to deal with trials and tribulations, but this time we will approach them with a different heart, and we will have the right solutions. If we maintain a close and true relationship with Jesus Christ, and if we continue to allow Him to lead us trough our lives, He will open up our eyes to a truth that we never new before. A wonderful truth that will enable us to understand life's problems with a much deeper insight and offer us solutions that we have never dreamed of before. Even if we do not understand these solutions at times, in retrospect we will see that He guided us step by step and led us to safety.


If you are tired of living a life without meaning in a materialistic world that lacks compassion and love, a world that has chosen the "Almighty Dollar" as it's god, and that will sacrifice anything and anybody to achieve it's ultimate goal: "financial freedom", then please consider the alternative.



BECOMING A CHRISTIAN


It's easy to do. All you need is a willing heart and an inquiring mind. No question is out of bounds or off limits. If God is who He says, He certainly shouldn't mind sincere and honest questions...and He doesn't! He tells us in the Bible, "Come, let us reason together."



IT'S A LITTLE HARDER TO ACTUALLY LIVE LIKE A CHRISTIAN...


...but this is where life truly gets to be fun and exciting, because we can be guided by a God who wants a relationship with us, always wants what is best for us, and has proven His love for us! We pray you'll get many of your questions answered here as you browse this site with an open mind and heart. The Christian life is not only joyful, but sometimes challenging and always rewarding. It's the ultimate in fulfillment! Stay with us...and we think you'll agree!

Jesus Christ is waiting for you every single day to open up your heart to Him, and to invite Him into your life. Once you are ready to take the next step the following prayer will be your "ticket" to Eternity:

The Prayer that will Change Your Eternal Destiny


Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10. "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead.

"Father, I thank You that Jesus died for me. I confess I have sinned and gone against Your plan for salvation. Forgive me Father for my transgressions. I receive the pardon right now. Lord Jesus, come into my life, Come into my heart, be my Lord and Savior. Give me a new heart with new desires, and by Your Spirit, give me the power to live a life that is pleasing to You.

I am now reborn! I am a Christian - a child of Almighty God! I am saved! You also said in Your Word, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:13). I'm also asking You to fill me with the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise God. If it is your will, enable me to speak in other tongues as You give me the utterance. (Acts 2:4).

Thank you for forgiving me as You promised. Thank You for the gift of eternal Life."


If you prayed this prayer - prayed it with sincerity and a true heart - then you can be assured that the Lord has prepared a place for you in heaven. Congratulations and welcome to the family of God. No matter what you've done in your life, you've received a full pardon in God's eyes. That's how easy it is for you. But it was not free - it cost God the life of His beloved Son in your place. Just thank Him for such love to you.

Begin to praise God for filling you with the Holy Spirit, and thank Him from the bottom of your heart.

Know that when you ask Jesus to come in, He will be there. Don't go by what it feels like or seems like at the time, just know that you are Born Again.

Now you are a Spirit-filled believer. Continue with the blessing God has given you and talk to Him each and every day. You'll never be the same!

Now your Life in Christ finally begins.

Jesus promised Eternal Life to all of us that follow Him. The ultimate reward. Nobody knows exactly what Eternal Life looks like, only God knows. At times I try to visualize how it would feel to live a life without suffering, a life full of love, the perfect life, and it seems magnificent. But however Eternal Life will eventually turn out, I know it is worth perceiving. But we do not have to wait until we die before we can enjoy the abundance of God's Love. He is with us in our hearts every single second of the day. Life as a Christian might not always be easy, but I would not trade it for anything in this world. Being a sensitive and caring person makes you vulnerable to pain and suffering, but on the other hand, you are able to feel love so much more deeply that this alone makes it worth all the effort.

Its seems foolish all the striving and bickering with one another here upon earth, when in the end we will all be one BIG Bundle of Love.

Daily prayer is the key to building a Great relationship with Jesus Christ. If you pray with an open heart you can ask Jesus for anything, and if it's God's will you will eventually receive it. Do not become frustrated through testing Him and waiting for miracles. Things might not happen exactly the way you expect them to, but if you, for example, wait for a period of time, maybe 3 or six months and then look back at the way your life has developed, I can assure you that you will see the light, that you will realize that Jesus has lead you, and at times even carried you through a life, which without Him would be senseless and unbearable.

Please also understand that you have received this gift through the Mercy and Grace of our Savior Jesus Christ, and not through your own works. Contrary to what many churches might want you to believe, you can not earn this gift. That also means that you can not lose it through mistakes, failures and sins that might lie in your future, unless you specifically ask Jesus to leave you. Knowing this alone will take a lot of pressure off you and enable you to live a life without fear and self-discrimination. Jesus knows that you will fail many times, but He will always be at your side and lift you up again no matter what, ready to forgive you and to lead you further on your path to heaven. If you want to know more about Christianity and the Life of Jesus Christ, a good place to start is, of course the Bible. The Bible is my Favorite Book because its God's love letter to me. You have to understand that it is not a book with a few stories and a few guidelines. It is the Living Word of God. Only if you read it with an open heart and a desire to change and to give your life to Jesus will the Word of God be able to inspire and lead you. If you are not a Christian and you try to read the Bible just out of curiosity, then it is a difficult book with many confusing parables and doctrines.

You must understand that satan attacked people in the Old Testament and caused them self-condemnation. You need to understand that God loves you and He sent Jesus to annul what satan caused you to believe. Many have done away with the Old Testament, but the promise to Abraham and his descendents are there, thus do not throw it away. There are many wonderful Scriptures and miracles performed in the Old Testament, Plus the land of milk and honey, but if you do not know Christ, the Truth, you'll believe God set out to destroy you.

So you can see that it is very important to understand the contents of what you are reading. This will make it a lot easier for you to understand what God is trying to say to you.

The Bible was designed to inspire him that reads it with an open mind, and to be a guiding hand for all Christians. Sometimes you will not understand what you are reading and suddenly you come to a paragraph that opens up your eyes and is a precise reflection of your current state of mind. Sometimes you will cry while reading it, and sometimes you will scratch your head. Compare it to the ultimate Father's love. He always wants the best for you and He always loves you. Sometimes you do not understand all His instructions, but you follow them anyway. Looking back at a later point in life you realize that He was right all along and that His guidance has ultimately saved you from destruction.

Reading the Bible should be part of your daily life as a Born Again Christian.

Your Father said, "Meditate on the Word day and night" to keep you safe and sound. Another good source of Christian literature are bookstores or Christian book shops. There you will find a great variety of books dealing with all aspects of Christianity. You'll find a wide variety in our Bible Book Store all written in accordance with the Holy Scriptures. But before you read any book written about Christ, you must ask Jesus Christ for guidance while you evaluate the material.

Find a good Word of God preaching church, and become a part of a church family who will love and care for you as you love and care for them.

If you received Jesus into your life and are born again, Email me and let's pray and rejoice together because you are Born Again.

Faithfully Yours.
Sarah Anderson



One day a Pharisee asked Jesus: "Master, which kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? (Some commandments are light-which are heavy?) And Jesus said to him: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind (intellect). This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 22:36-40)
