The Prayer of Repentance

Lord God, I confess that I am a sinner and believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and died for my sins, was buried, and rose again on the Third Day. Right now, I ask Him to forgive me of my sins, to come into my heart, and to be my Lord and Savior.

If you prayed that prayer from the heart, we would like to welcome you into God's Family and encourage you to unite with a local Christian church as soon as possible and be baptized.
