Become a Christian
If you come to this web site longing for something of God—a blessing, a word, an action—but have never truly known God in an intimate, personal way, God may be preparing you for something important.
"Becoming" a Christian for you may be simply accepting what already is.
If you already acknowledge these realities, you are already a Christian. Well done! If not, however, and feel like it is high time to get this part of your life in order, you may want to pray the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner deserving God’s punishment. I am sorry for my sins. I really am. I believe that you took my sins upon the cross and died in my place. I open the door of my life to you. Live in my heart and help me know you better. Thank you for forgiving my sins, saving me, and helping me to obey you. Amen.
This is not a magical incantation. The words only have meaning as they reflect what is true in your heart. Here's the best part of being a Christian:
Finally, we strongly suggest you FIND A CHURCH in which to publicly accept and profess your faith in Jesus Christ. If you are in the Dunedin area, come to worship on Sundays, or come by the church office during the week and ask for one of the pastors, directors or an elder. We would love to meet with you and encourage and help chart the next steps of your great adventure of faith.
