# Repent, which means, "turn to God" for salvation. [[Repent According to the Bible|Repent]] for your sins. When you in your mind or deed are convicted of sin, make penance so that you can be forgiven, and you can keep on living as a Child of God. Verbalize your belief in Jesus' forgiveness and your regret for all the ways you have fallen short in obedience. This is a good time to admit your personal failure and disobedience to God. Believe that Jesus Christ forgives you. [[Repent According to the Bible|Repentance]] always expresses itself in a changed life; you turn from sin and to Jesus Christ; then, [[Receive the Holy Spirit as per the Bible| accept your free gift of salvation]] by faith in Jesus' redemptive death through grace from God. As Son of Man, Jesus said, "Father, if it is your will, let this bitter cup pass from me - nevertheless, not my will but thine be done", giving Himself freely to His Heavenly Fathers will for He loves His Father.

Understand God's gift when you understand what Ephesians 2:8-10 says:<ref>https://ift.tt/379M4dj> "For it is "by grace" you have been saved, through faith and this "not of yourselves", it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."(Ephesians 2:8--10)[[Image:Honor God Step 5.jpg]] [[Image:Be a Christian Step 3.jpg|center]]
 
# Share what you learn with others--the gospel means "good news"! [[Share the Gospel like Jesus|witness to Jesus]]. Every Christian is to preach the Gospel in word and deed,  with cultural sensitivity, gentleness and respect. Christ did not always preach what people wanted to hear. If He had, our Lord wouldn't have been crucified so sometimes people will get offended, but ask God to give you words to share with others that will touch their hearts and answer their own questions. God will guide you as you share with others. Use the Bible whenever possible as it is "powerful and effective" and it's words "will not return void". [[Image:Sad 24.jpg]]

# Find community and other Christians to encourage your new faith. Even if you can walk alone with Yehoshua or Jesus, it will help more if you find a group of supportive Christian believers who can help each other and encourage you in your new faith. The Bible says, "Do not give up the habit of meeting with one another as some are in the habit of doing". The church is compared to a body and all the parts need each other to function with health. You are now part of that body! Chose a church that is loving above all else (Jesus said, "They will know you are Christians by your love"). Research the beliefs of different churches online such as: Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Nondenominational, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Mormon, etc. denominations in order to decide which one is the Church that Christ started, the "Pillar and Foundation of Truth".[[Image:Oakland_Temple_statue_of_Jesus_in_the_visitors_center.jpg]]

# [[Tell Someone That Water Baptism Is Important for Christianity|Be baptised]]. Baptism is a  symbol of your leaving your old ways behind, being washed clean of your sins and starting a new way of life. It may be thought of as a ''self portrait'' of your joining with Christ in the death and resurrection in your heart (core of your being) and in the eye of the observer. “Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts‬ ‭2:38).<ref>‬https://ift.tt/3brSQ1h> Baptism was described by the apostle Paul as: "Therefore we are planted together (united) with Him by baptism into death: that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life" (Roman 6:4).<ref>http://bible.cc/romans/6-4.htm</ref>[[Image:Follow Jesus Christ Step 7.jpg]]

#* Remember when you get baptized it is an act of obedience but cannot grant you salvation by itself. You must repent, believe and place your faith in Jesus Christ.

# Love Jesus and love others with the love that Jesus gives you. Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus, the one mediator between God and man, with the Spirit of God as your friend and comforter. These things reflect your changed heart, and love one of the most important aspects of a Christian life. You should hate the sin and not have anything in your heart against anyone even a sinner. God will give you a new heart with new strength when you seek and find the Holy Spirit.[[Image:Be a Christian Step 9.jpg|center]]
