How Do I Start A Relationship with Jesus?

HOW DO I START A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?


If you want to know God better, or you sense that something isn’t right between you and Him, you can fix it. You don’t need to wait any longer. God loves you. All you have to do is respond, and it’s not hard to do!

  1. Admit you have sinned and need forgiveness.
  2. Believe in and ask Jesus into your heart.  God sent His only son, Jesus.  Jesus was born in a manger, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and rose again on the third day all because God loves you. You don’t have to “clean yourself up” before coming to God: He accepts you just as you are.
  3. Confess your sins and ask for God’s forgiveness.
  4. Take the ‘next steps’ (see below)

I STARTED WITH JESUS

Congratulations on your decision to become a Christ-follower!  It’s the most important decision you will ever make. We are excited that you said “Yes!” to Jesus. Whether you are trusting Jesus for the first time, or you are returning back to him, this decision will have a great impact on your life. Below, we have provided some great resources to help you on your next steps to following Jesus.


WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I SAID “YES!” TO JESUS?

What happened when you asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins and come into your heart? The Bible calls it ‘being saved’ or ‘born again’. When you became a Christ-follower, the Bible says that all your sins – past and present – have been forgiven.


DAILY DISCIPLE

Start growing by spending 5-20 minutes with Jesus each day. Becoming a ‘daily disciple,’ means allowing God to change us, inside and out.  We have listed some great resources to help you begin to grow closer to God.

HOW WOULD YOU FINISH THAT SENTENCE?

The subject is there, and so is the verb, but what comes next? Your answer could shed light on the path to becoming who you were made to be.

In these pages, Judah Smith fills out that sentence again and again, each time further revealing the character of Jesus. He writes as if to a friend, illustrating the importance of Christ’s message to modern men and women. This is a book for new believers, for lifelong followers, and for the merely curious.

Judah Smith shows us the Jesus that somber paintings and hymns fail to capture. With passion, humor, and conviction, he shows that Jesus is life. Jesus is grace. Jesus is your friend. Jesus is a new and better way to be human.  To learn more about this book, click here.

The Jesus Film

The goal of The JESUS Film Project is to help share Jesus with everyone in his or her own heart language using media tools and movement building strategies.

The JESUS Film Project distributes the film “JESUS,” a two-hour docudrama about the life of Christ based on the Gospel of Luke. The film has been seen in every country of the world and translated into hundreds of languages since its initial release in 1979. Our goal is to reach every nation, tribe, people and tongue, helping them see and hear the story of Jesus in a language they can understand. So whether a person speaks Swahili, French, or a language whose name is extremely difficult for most to pronounce, he or she will encounter the life and message of Jesus in a language “of the heart.”

Many mission experts have acclaimed the “JESUS” film as one of the greatest evangelistic success stories of all time. The ultimate success of this project won’t be measured by how many people have already seen it, but by how many will follow Him after seeing this film.  Watch the Jesus film by clicking here.
