Welcome to the Family: For New Believers
What to Expect Now That You’re a Christian
You’ve responded to God’s call—surrendering yourself to His will—and now your life will never be the same. By becoming a follower of Jesus Christ, you’ve not only secured an eternal home in heaven, but you’ve also begun a one-on-one relationship with the Maker of the universe!
When you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you became part of His family, one filled with brothers and sisters in the faith—both within your local church and around the world. This is an exciting time for you as a new believer…the guilt of your sins has been forever lifted from your shoulders. The grey cloud of hopelessness has left, the light of Christ has penetrated your life, and you’re experiencing life like never before.
Dr. John MacArthur wants to be one of the first to welcome you to God’s family and to help you along the way with words of encouragement and with Biblical insight and direction.
