If you want to test yourself to see whether you are a Christian, ask yourself these questions and answer honestly:
1. Do I believe that Jesus Christ came from Heaven for the express purpose of reconciling mankind to God the Father?
2. Do I acknowledge that the fallen human nature is predisposed to sin, and that only Jesus can redeem my life from sin and make me acceptable to a holy God?
3. Do I believe Jesus died on a cross, that God raised him from the dead and that he is now alive for evermore?
4. Do I believe that when Jesus died on the cross, he paid the price for my sins?
5. Have I ever acknowledged to God that I am a sinner, in need of God’s forgiveness?
6. Did I ever pray to Jesus to become a Christian? If so, was I sincere in my heart about what I was asking?
7. If someone asked me, could I give examples of some sins that God has forgiven me for?
8. Do I believe that I can talk to Jesus in prayer and he will answer?

10. Do I accept Jesus as my Lord, in charge of my whole life from now on, putting him first instead of myself?
11. Am I doing my best nowadays, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to live a changed life that will please Jesus my Lord?
