Asking Jesus into Your Heart

Q: A friend told me that the only way you were Christian was if you “asked Jesus into your heart.” What is my friend talking about?

A: Your friend is talking about the way he views having a personal relationship with Christ. Some Christians think that the way to become a Christian and gain salvation is by simply asking Jesus to be their personal Lord and Savior. It is true that we need to have a relationship with Christ, but we, in order to become a true Christian, need to be baptized.
