9 – Baptism is one way we show others that we believe in Jesus and live for Him alone. Before we can be baptized, we first have to believe that Jesus is our Saviour. When God sent His Son Jesus to die for us, Jesus became our Saviour and God made it possible for us to always go to God for help, if we repent of our sin and confess Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. If you want to begin a personal relationship with Him, all you need to do is;
A_________ (Admit) that you have done wrong and ask God to forgive you for disobeying Him.
B_______ (Believe) that God sent Jesus to take the punishment for your sin. Trust that you are forgiven because Jesus made you right with God
C________ (Choose) to spend your whole life depending on God’s power to help you say no to sin. Rely on God to help you tell others that God is your leader and the most important person in your life.
