How to know God

REALIZE

that you are a sinner.

No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners.

We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT).

This is because we can not become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.

RECOGNIZE

that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.

The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT).

This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.

REPENT

of your sin.

The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.

RECEIVE

Jesus Christ into your life.

Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart.

Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in…” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV)

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner.
I believe you died for my sins.
Right now, I turn from my sins
and open the door of my heart and life.
I confess you as
my personal Lord and Savior.
Thank you for saving me.
Amen.

If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Let someone know you have received Jesus by sending an email to: pastor@ccfarmville.org or call the church office and ask to speak with Pastor Marv (434) 315-0406.

Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven. The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Follow this decision by being baptized.  Baptism is an act of obedience in response to what God has done and it is a witness to the world.  To put your faith in action, be sure to spend time with God by reading your Bible, praying, going to church, and telling others about Christ.
