Welcome to the Family!
I am glad you have made a great decision!

Things You Need to Know!

Your sins are forgiven! - Colossians 1:13-14 says, "He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." IN Christ, we, as believers have two things: redemption and forgiveness.

You are now a new Creation! - 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away, and see, the new has come!" The moment you accept Christ as your Savior, you have became a new creature - you are now a new person, and so the text says, the "old" things - old lifestyle has passed away.

You are justified! - Romans 5:1 says, "Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." - Who declared us righteous? Christ; what declared us righteous? Our faith in Christ. What does it mean to be declared righteous? It means we are free of charges. And what does free of charges mean? The Scripture says all have sinned and come short to the glory of God (Romans 3:23), and the Scripture also tells us that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). We are free from what we rightly deserve - eternal punishment. But, by the "grace" of God, in Christ and through Christ we are "freely" justified.

You have Assurance! - 1 John 5:11-13 says, "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has life. The one who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." John says it in a straight forward way - the one who has the Son has life (eternal life - everlasting life with Christ), and those who does not have the Son of God, does not have the eternal life (in fact, those who does not have the son also have eternal life, but not with Christ).

Things You Need to Do!

Pray! I cannot emphasize more on this topic. Prayer is vital in one's relationship with God. If not by prayer, how would you communicate with God? Whether one is new to Christianity or a matured Christian, he or she would STILL needs to pray!

Read the Bible! Reading the Bible is a way of getting to know God. God revealed Himself or about Himself through the words He spoke, given for us in the form of Scripture (Bible). There are several reading plans available for you to read. However, I would suggest reading the Gospel of John for the entire first month (over and over again).

Memorize the Scripture! Reading isn't enough. The Psalmist in 119:11 says, "I have treasured your word in my heart, so that I may not sin against you." This is exactly what we need to do - to treasure His Word in our hearts. So, memorizing Scripture is important. Without His Word in our hearts, how can we expect God to help us? He speaks to us through His Word!

Share your faith with others! True hope is only available in and through Jesus Christ! Everlasting or eternal life is only available by one's faith in Christ! Your experience, your journey to faith in Jesus is not something you should keep it for yourself! You should share that experience with others! Yes, there will be some who will not listen; who might not care, but still, your salvation experience can lead someone to Christ! Heaven rejoices when one repents and comes to the knowledge of Truth (Luke 15:7; John 14:6).

Be Baptized. Baptism by immersion is an act of obedience, symbolizing and identifying with Christ's death, burial and resurrection.

Why is this important?

  1. Christ was baptized (Matthew 3:16)
  2. In the Great Commission Christ said to baptize - "making disciples, 'baptizing them'" (Matthew 28:19)
  3. Romans 6:4 says, "Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life." Baptism illustrates our new life with Christ and death to sin (Colossians 2:12)

Strive to be Holy! The Bible says in 1 Peter 1:16, "for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy." It is our responsibility to strive to be holy, to be set apart; to set apart for what? For God!

"So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him" (Colossians 2:6).
