Step One
Jesus is the answer Question: How can I have a relationship with God?
Answer: I must believe that God loves me and created me to have a personal relationship with Him.
The Bible tells me:
  • He created me. Psalm 139:13-14
  • He loves me. John 3:16
  • He wants me to know Him. John 17:3
  • He wants me to have an abundant life.John 10:10
Step Two
Surrender your life to God Question: If that is the case, then why don't many people have a personal relationship with God?
Answer: Because sin separates man from God.
The Bible tells me:
  • All of us are sinners. Romans 3:23
  • When we sin, we are cut off from God. Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23
  • Sin is not doing what we know we should do. James 4:17
Step Three
All things are possible with God Question: How can I fix this separation between God and me?
Answer: Jesus Christ is the only bridge there is between God and me.
The Bible tells me:
  • Jesus is the only way. John 14:6; Acts 4:12
  • He had to die to make the way. 1 Peter 3:18
  • He died for us.Romans 5:8
  • He proved He was the way by coming back to life. 1 Corinthians 15:3-6
Step Four
Smile God loves you Question: How do I cross this bridge?
Answer: I must personally trust Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
The Bible tells me:
  • I must trust Jesus. Ephesians 2:8-9
  • I must become willing to turn away from my sin and turn to God. Acts 3:19
  • I must receive Christ through faith. Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12; Revelation 3:20
Step Five
Serve God all your days Question: How do I receive Jesus?
Answer: The Bible tells me I must become willing to:
  • Turn to God, and away from my old way of living. Acts 3:19; Romans 10:13
  • Ask Christ to come into my life. Revelation 3:20
  • Trust God to forgive my sins. Acts 2:38; 1 John 1:9
  • Be willing to let God direct my life. John 15:4-6; Galatians 2:20
Step Six
Serving Jesus is Great Question: I am willing - now what?
Answer: I need to pray:

Dear God, I know I am a sinner and separated from You. Thank You for sending Jesus to die for me. Please forgive my sins. I ask that Jesus come into my life to help me change my old habits and to live my life for You. I thank You for giving me eternal life. I pray all these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Step Seven
God answers prayer Question: What now?
Answer: I am now a child of God.
The Bible tells me:
  • He will never leave me. Hebrews 13:5
  • All my sins are forgiven. Colossians 2:13-14
  • I will be with Him forever. 1 John 5:13
  • The Holy Spirit lives in me and helps me. Galatians 5:25
  • I am to continue to grow strong & vigorous. Colossians 2:6-7
Step Eight
It is finished Jesus has paid it all Question: How secure is this new relationship?
Answer: The Bible tells me it is forever!
  • Nothing can separate me from the love of God. Romans 8:38-39
  • No one can cause me to lose this relationship. Isaiah 43:13; John 10:29
  • There is nowhere I can go to get away from God.Psalm 139:1-12
  • No one will snatch me out of God's hand.John 10:29

Question: Is There Anything Else I Need To Do?
Answer: Begin taking steps to grow as a Christian.
  • Get a Bible.
  • Begin studying the Bible and spend time each day praying and praising God.** God will begin to direct your life in all things.

Study: 1 Peter 2:2; 2 Timothy 2:15

Prayer: Philippians 4:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18; James 5:16

God's Guidance: Psalm 32:8; Psalm 119:105; John 16:13

  • As soon as it is practical, seek to be baptized. Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16
  • When you fail in your efforts to do what God wants, confess and ask for God's forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 Remember that God will never leave you Hebrews 13:5 and will help you resist when you are tempted to do wrong. 1 Corinthians 10:13

MY DECISION TO RECEIVE CHRIST AS MY SAVIOR Please print this page and keep it for reference. Confessing to God that I am a sinner, and believing that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and was raised for my justification, I do now receive and confess Him as my personal Savior.

If you have made this decision to accept Christ or if you have any questions about making a commitment to Christ please Email Wildwood and send us a note about you commitment or questions so that we may pray for you and send you some literature to help you in your new life with God.
**Using The Liberating Devotional is one way to grow in your relationship with God.
