The Good Person Test

What do I do next?

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast." - Ephesians 2:8,9 (NIV)

If you have repented* and are trusting Jesus Christ to pay the penalty you owe for sin, and Jesus Christ alone, then...

Tell God what you think about what Jesus has done. That is called praying. There are no special words. Just say what is on your heart.

Read your Bible every day.
Just like food nourishes your body, God's word nourishes your soul.

If you do not have a Bible, we recommend getting either the New Living Translation (NLT) or the New International Version (NIV). There are many other good translations**, but these are two of the easier Bibles to read. Many people have a King James Version (KJV). The KJV can be purchased for as little as $1.00. The King James Version is a very accurate, beautiful translation, but the old style English is difficult to read and understand. When first starting to read the Bible we recommend either an NLT or NIV bible, and waiting to read the KJV until you are more experienced.

From the NIV - Romans 8:1
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Find a good church.
This can be somewhat difficult, because all churches
claim to believe in Jesus Christ.
All claim to be Christ-centered and Bible-based.

To start there are some churches which are easily eliminated, such as: LDS (Mormons), Jehovah's Witnesess, Unitarian (any universal type church), and Christian Scientists. None of these are Christian. Why not? Because none believe in the Biblical Jesus Christ, but instead they have all created their own Jesus Christ.

How do you recognize a good church?

Once you repent and start to trust Jesus for your salvation,
nothing can take your salvation away.
From the NLT - Romans 8:38, 39
"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels can't, and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Here are some web sites you may find helpful.

The Living Waters web site has a section for new Christians
called: Save Yourself Some Pain

We'll be happy to send you a free copy

*Turn away from disobeying God and and desire to, and work to obey God.

** Other good translations include the New American Standard Bible (NASB). This would be the Bible we recommend, once you have some experience with the Bible, should you wish to do an indepth Bible study.
