and often controls us. It prevents us from doing

The sin we do everyday often feels good for a

Jesus was without sin, and then He came
to us to pay the penalty for our sin. He was
to a cross and died to make it possible for us to be
restored to God. God accepted His sacrifice, and
Jesus from the dead so we could know that the debt
has been paid. We can be Forgiven

What does it

A Christian is a person that has asked
Jesus to be
their Lord and Savior. They believe that Jesus is
of God who lived a sinless life, died on the cross,
again to save men, women, and children from their

consequence of sin, working to get rid of sin in
everyday lives, and wait for God to bring us home to

After you have become a
Christian what do you do next? There are three very
things that you can do after becoming a follower of
1. Read the Bible
Find a Bible in your home or at a
church or a local store. You can find a Bible just
everywhere. There are many different versions out
time, it can get a little confusing, but for a first
reader we suggest a NIV. Many are available online
want to do a search and find a version that works
In the future you will want to look for a good Study
that has notes and maps to help you understand what
reading. If you find that you are not a good
quit. Reading you Bible every day is the key even
if it is
only a few verses. After you find a Bible you like and
really understand, you might find that version on CD. I always recommend people start in
Gospel of John. It is the fourth book of the New
Testament. It gives a great picture of who Jesus
2. Find a place to
Worship. There are Churches everywhere. Take
to find one or two near where you live. Make it your
visit Churches until you find one that teaches the
the Word of God, and seeks to help people understand
means to follow Jesus Christ. There are a variety
that teach the Bible and are willing to help
like different types of music, worship at different
the day, and even different days of the week. Look
till you find one that works out for you. If you
Nashua or Hudson New Hampshire you are always welcome at Cross
Pointe. See home page for our service times.
3. Make a change
After becoming a Christian you are a
person don’t go back to all your old ways. Try
some Christian music, look at work or at school for
Christian’s and introduce yourself to them, try
the local Christian radio station. Make a point to
others about what you have learned recently. Take
time to read your Bible everyday, pray or talk to
listen to how He is directing your life.
Don’t stop thinking.
