What Is Christianity All About?

At its core, Christianity is about the good news that God has made a way for you to be "right" with Him.

  • All of us have broken God's laws. It may be that you stole something as a child or it may be that you've told a lie. What have you done that is against God's laws? (Romans 3:10-12; Ecclesiastes 7:20)
  • God is perfect and just. As such He has to punish all bad behavior. The Bible says that God will punish those who have broken His law by sending them to Hell, the everlasting lake of fire. (Revelation 21:8; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
  • Be honest with yourself. If God were to judge you today based on the 10 Commandments, would you be innocent or guilty? Where would you be sent, Heaven or Hell?
  • God knows that we are incapable of completely keeping His laws, so in His love He has provided a way to escape the punishment that we deserve. God sent his Son, Jesus, who lived a perfect life without breaking any of Godís commandments. Because of this, Jesus was able to accept the punishment for the wrong-doing of those who believe in Him. We owed a fine for breaking God's law that we could never pay, but Jesus paid it for those who believe. (Matthew 5:48; Galatians 4:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4-5; John 3:16-18)
  • If we repent of our sins and turn away from the things that we do that are against God's law and trust Jesus to satisfy God's punishment for us, the Bible says that we are made new again and that we are "right with God." You can know, now and forever, that God loves you and that He will take you to Heaven when you die. (2 Corinthians 5:17: Romans 3:24-26; Romans 5:1,9; Titus 3:5-7; John 5:24: John 14:1-3)
 

What now?

Believers in Jesus Christ always want to learn more about Him and to be more like Him. The best way to do this is to do the following:

  • First and foremost you need to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior
  • Pray that God will teach you His ways and show you how to be more like Him.
  • Start reading the Bible
  • Look for a good local church to attend that teaches straight from the Bible.

If you would like to start your walk with Jesus today just say this simple prayer.

"God, I realize I need a Savior. I confess that I have sinned and I know that my sin will keep me out of heaven. I realize there is not one single thing I can do to earn my way into Your heaven. Right now I am placing all, 100 percent of my trust, in Christ’s death on the cross and resurrection from the dead as payment for my sin. I now accept you as my Lord and Savior, and I commit my life to you. Thank you for forgiving me and giving me your Holy Spirit."
