The most important single thing you can do in your life is to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, in which He is your personal Lord and Saviour, and you are His trusting follower. If you do this one thing, you will find joy and happiness now and forever. If you do not do this one thing, you will continue to deprive yourself of the many blessings God has intended for you to receive. If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, you can do so here, on this page.

This page is your invitation to accept God's offer of eternal life with Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Here's how it's done:

First, you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. You turn your entire life over to Him, and you agree to follow Him as He leads you. You need to speak these things directly to God with your lips, not just think them in your mind. At this point, you are a Christian, and you are "saved." (See Romans 10:9)

Then, you ask Him to fill you completely with His Holy Spirit, saturating your entire being with Himself. He will do this, and when He does, you are "born again." Being "born again" means that you have received the gift of the Holy Spirit, which has now taken over your life. Your old life is over; your new life is here. You will know it when this happens. (See John 3:7; 1 Peter 1:23)

Here is a powerful prayer to accomplish these first two steps . . .


         GIVE YOURSELF TO JESUS

If you want to do this now, here are the words you can use: Of course,
you must agree with these words and say them sincerely, as from yourself.
Be consciously aware that you are seeking Him, trying and intending to 
speak directly to Him. Don't say these words to Him unless you mean them.

   "Lord Jesus, I give myself to You, for You to be my only Lord and
    Master. I renounce and repudiate all other loyalties, and
    I desire no other Lord but You. Please come into me and
    take control of my life. Mold me to Your will and to Your
    use. I ask that You drive out all other spirits which conflict
    with You in any way. I want to belong only to You, to be subject
    only to You. I make this prayer to You, in Your name, the name of
    Jesus. Amen."  


These words have been tested in real life, and they DO WORK!

If you truly mean these words sincerely, you will not need to
repeat them very many times before you will have a dramatic reaction!
The Lord Jesus WILL accept you, and He will enter into you and
take control of your life.

Get ready, for it will happen to you!

    "Seek, and ye shall find; ask, and ye shall receive."

Once the Holy Spirit is within you, He will let you see your previous sins clearly, so you can repent of them. You will be ashamed of them, and glad to get rid of them. As you repent of them and turn away from them, He will forgive you of each one. At the same time, He will ask you to forgive everyone who has ever harmed you in any way. These two things always go together: He forgives you as you forgive others. (See Matthew 6:14-15)

Finally, you should to be baptized by immersion in water by a minister of God called for this purpose. This completes the process in the Biblical manner. (See Matthew 28:19) NOTE: You may need to postpone your official Baptism until have become a member of a local congregation and have someone available to perform the Baptism. It took me about a year to be Baptized after I was saved.

Now you are ready to go forth into the world as a "born-again, baptized, full-time Christian."

If you don't already have one, go buy a Bible, as the Holy Spirit leads you. The Lord wants us to follow the words He has given us, and these are the words usually printed in red in most Bibles. (See Matthew 28:20)

If you have not already done so, find and join a local church congregation, as the Holy Spirit leads you.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.

                 There is a banquet that is well prepared,
                 And you are now invited to attend.
                 No matter who you are, how great or small,
                 You are invited as a child of God.
                 Your Father will be waiting there for you.
                 He hopes that He will see your smiling face.
                 He has some special gifts prepared for you,
                 But you can't get them if you do not come.
                 And so I pray the Lord you will be there.
                 In Jesus' holy name I pray for you.
