"It is important that we realize that 
we are sinners, and that we ask God 
for forgiveness. If we are honest 
with ourselves we know that we are 
not perfect and do not measure up 
to God’s standards. The good news 
is that forgiveness is available to all. 
However far you have ran away, God 
is waiting with open arms to welcome 
you into His family. He truly loves you.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

“Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, 
He gave the right to become children of God.”   John 1:12

We may take a leap of faith, and believe that Jesus died on the cross and indeed rose from the dead. Even though this seems incredible, 
the Bible is a very trustworthy source, and the resurrection of Jesus is made very clear. It also means that Jesus is not dead anymore, He is alive today! We need to acknowledge God as our Lord as well. It may not be easy to surrender your life to Him, but remember that God 
has the very best in mind for you. He created you, and knows you better than anyone else. There is no safer place to be than under 
His command.

"That if you confess 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

This is the most important decision you can make in your life. If you are ready, you may pray this prayer:

Dear God,

I realize I am a sinner, and I am sorry that I have sinned against You. I know that I need Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that He rose from the grave. I now would like to ask You take control of my life. I want to follow you as my Lord and Savior for the rest of my life.     In Jesus’ Name, Amen
