How Do I Accept Christ?

Through prayer, you can invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Savior.
“For, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
You have made a decision that will undoubtedly have a major influence on the direction of your life.
 Knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior is the most exciting and life-changing relationship you will ever have. Entering into a relationship with Him marks the beginning of new life. Life Church shares your excitement and rejoices with you!
Choosing to believe that He is who He claimed to be—the Son of God and the only way to salvation—and receiving Him by faith as your Lord and Savior is the most vital act you will ever do.
We want life. He is Life. We need cleansing. He is the Living Water.

To receive Christ into your heart is as simple as saying your ABCs.

Admit that you are a sinner and that you need God’s help.

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” 

(Romans 3:23)

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way, death came to all people, because all sinned.” 

(Romans 5:12)

Be willing to change your life around and turn from your sin (repent).

Jesus said: “I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” 

(Luke 13:5)

Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

(John 3:16)

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

(Romans 10:9)

Confess with your mouth who Jesus is.

“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” (Romans 10:10)

If you are willing to place your trust in Jesus Christ, you can invite him into your heart by prayer. Use the following prayer or a similar one in your own words.

Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God, that you died on the cross to rescue me from sin and death and to restore me to the Father. I choose now to turn from my sins, my self-centeredness, and every part of my life that does not please you. I choose you. I give myself to you. I receive your forgiveness and ask you to take your rightful place in my life as my Savior and Lord. Come reign in my heart, fill me with your love and your life, and help me to become a person who is truly loving—a person like you. Restore me, Jesus. Live in me. Love through me. Thank you, God. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

water baptism

Water Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
The first step of being water baptized is to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Following every service you will get the opportunity to become a follower!
Water baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of new life in Christ. Invite your friends and family with you to our Baptism Service.
Our team is prepared with everything you need including a baptism t-shirt that’s yours to keep.

Those who are baptized are following Jesus’ example and obeying His command.

● “As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well 

pleased.’” —Matthew 3:16–17

● “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have 
commanded you.’”—Matthew 28:18–20
Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:
● You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
● “Those who accepted his message were baptized.” —Acts 2:41
● You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
● “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” —Romans 6:4
● You are part of a new family.
 “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” —Galatians 3:26–27
Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.
At LIFE CHURCH, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them. Babies are too young to REPENT & BELIEVE, and invalidates the “baptism” of those who have never received Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Bible says…
Acts 2:41 “Those who believed and accepted His message were baptized…”  
We practice a CHILD DEDICATION CEREMONY for children. This ceremony is intended to be a covenant between the parents, God, and this church on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. This is different from Water Baptism, which was only for those old enough to believe. The purpose is to publicly confess your personal commitment to Christ.
We will baptize anyone (12 years old and up) who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage any parents with questions to speak with a Pastor.
If you are ready, fill out the form below to apply for your baptism.

We are excited to celebrate this decision with you!
