Sinner’s prayer (From Amazing Facts Ministry):
I know that I’ve broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you.
I believe that your son Jesus died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive in heaven, and hears my prayers.
I am truly sorry for my past sins, and I now want to turn to you and turn away from sin. Please forgive me and help me to walk in a new life.
I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and to reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey you and to do your will for the rest of my life.
And I pray these things in Jesus’ name, amen.

More important than the information on this website, is our personal relationship with Jesus Christ, John 14:6; 1 John 1:9; Romans 10:9-13; John 3:16; Acts 16:31; Psalm 91:15-16; Joel 2:31-32; John 10:28; Romans 8:38-39; 1 John 5:11-13.
