How to Know Christ

The Bible, as God’s Word, proclaims how a person can come into a living and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

  1. Acknowledge you are a sinner.
    While some may think they are “good people," everyone has committed sin.
    “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
  2. Recognize you deserve death.
    Because God is holy, He must judge sin. The penalty for sin is eternal separation from God.
    “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23)
  3. Understand Christ died for your sins and rose again.
    The Good News of the Bible is that God graciously supplied a substitute for the penalty you deserve.
    “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
  4. Put your trust in Christ as your Savior.
    God invites you to come into a relationship with Him through faith in Christ’s death on your behalf.
    “For by grace you have been saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not a result of works, that no one should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

If you put your faith alone in Christ alone, you will come into a loving and eternal relationship with Christ.
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13)
