What Must You Do to Become a Christian?
1. You must believe
Not just a “head faith” but a “heart faith” that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. Read: Romans 5:1, Hebrews 11:6, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:13, John 3:16.
2. You must repent of sin.
Repentance is a “turning from sin” and involves both a sorrow for sin and a true desire to live nearer to Christ in the future. Read: Acts17:30-31, II Peter 3:9.
3. You must confess Christ.
This is a public witnessing to the fact that you do believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Read: Matthew 10:32-33, Romans 10:10, Matthew 16:13-17.
4. You must be baptized into Christ for the remission of sins.
Baptism is not just a religious ceremony but is an act of saving faith whereby the believing repentant, confessing sinner comes into contact with the blood of Christ. Read: Acts 2:38,1 Peter 3:21, Galatians 3:27, Mark 16:16, Romans 6:3-5.
