I am a Christian,
My hope of salvation is found in Christ alone,
He is the only way, the truth and the light.
It is not obedience of the law that will make me stand blameless before God,
Neither is it the good works that I have done,
For to God, it is like filthy rags.

I am a Christian,
I am not worried about what will happen to me when I die,
For Christ has ransomed me from the power of the grave,
He has redeemed me from death,
Death has been swallowed up in victory,
Death has lost its sting
Hell has lost its victory! (1 Corinthians 15: 55; Hosea 13:14)

I am a Christian,
I am not haunted by my past,
All the wicked and most dreadful things I did,
Christ has taken them away, to the effect that, though they are as red as crimson he made them white as snow.
And my secret sin, the things I was once ashamed of,
Christ has taken; I am a new creation,
All my old things have passed away and He has made me new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I am a Christian,
I no longer stand condemned before God,
Because I am in Christ,
The Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death,
For the law simply condemned, it was like a mirror, showing me how wicked I am, how I fail to reach the standard of God and the Penalty of eternal damnation that awaited me, it failed to save me.
Yet God full of love sent his son to pay my punishment that I may simply come and confess and he would forgive me.

I am a Christian,
Christ has sprinkled clean water on me and made me clean,
He cleansed me from all my impurities and all my idols,
He gave me a new heart and a new spirit,
He removed my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh,
He put His Spirit in me and moves me to follow his decrees and to keep his law.
(Ezekiel 36:25-27).

I am a Christian,
Christ lifted me out of the slimy pit,
Out of the mud and mire;
He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth; a hymn of praise to God...

Are you a Christian?
Have you come to Christ and laid all your sin at his feet?
Do you have the assurance of salvation?
Come to him his hands are wide open to you....
