christians say you need to go to church every sunday to be a good person. but i believe that as long as you are kind to everyone and yourself, take time to help others, and pray to god every night and in times of good and bad, you will have a good relationship with god and being a christian.

Well ... first ... you need to determine WHICH god you want to start a relationship with. Some are more finicky in their relationship requirements than others.

Go to a Catholic Church on any night that there is Eucharistic Adoration, alot of people dont know this, but Jesus is present in the Eucharist, so just go there, and just sit with Jesus for a while, and pray, tell him your woes, and your joys, and your problems, and if you listen, perhaps he might even speak back to you. i think this is the best way to Start a relationship with God, and it will keep it strong long after that

We must receive Christ and his offer of salvation as a gift.
?But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.? (John 1:12)

?For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.? (Ephesians 2:8-9)

If you want it you have it. He knows your heart already. Talk to Him, study His word and think about finding a good church - i suggest trying to find a good non-denominational contemporary church that puts less stress on religious conformity and more on God and His word.

I use to go to a church in Denver for 15 years called Grace Chapel fellowship. But I'm orginally from Kansas. In 2004 God called me back to Kansas in a very small town of 3500 people. Now I attend a Home Church more or less. A brother I meant his wife has a Midwife clinic and her father is our bible study leader. He came out of Calvery Chapel. Chuck Smiths church. He now has a Bible School and can teach you the whole bible verse by verse chapter by chapter in a 16 week course. If you would like to hear some of his teaching you can go to youtube and type in Merle Rothwell.

Search out who he is. Learn his character traits & his ways. Talk to him, rather than thinking fruitless thoughts. Ask for his understanding. Seeking his face, not his hand will make & keep you strong. Always ask for his truth.

You are asking questions and that means you are on the right track. We are all sinners and in need of a Savior and that what Jesus is. He died for you and for me to take our sin and then on the third day He rose to overcome death so that we might have eternal life with Him one day. If you confess these things and then continue to read His word and pray you will have a personal relationship with Jesus.

Pray, and read the Bible. Be specific on your prayers and tell him what you want and how you feel. Act upon your prayer by reading the Bible regularly and meditating on it. All this will help you out =)

Not all religions lead to friendship with God. Jesus, who is God’s closest friend, spoke of two roads. One road is wide and is filled with people. That road leads to destruction. The other road is narrow and has few people traveling on it. That road leads to everlasting life. This means that if you want to have God’s friendship, you must learn the correct way to worship him (Matthew 7:13, 14). I invite you to visit the website www.jw.org. It will be very helpful if you want to start a relationship with God.

Well, it is very simple. You go to God and say "Lord, I give my life to you and help me to see and understand your word." Now, I can't tell you what church to go to or what religion to choose from, that would be a bad thing on my part. I hope that I helped. God Bless

Jesus told his followers that the correct way of having a relationship with God was by taking in accurate knowledge of Him. (John 17:3) I also invite you to visit the website www.jw.org. It has helped me find th e correct way to worship God.

You must take in accurate knowledge of God so you can come to know him. The only way you'll build a relationship with anyone is if you know more about them first. And the greatest way we can do that is by peering into his word the Bible and meditating on his qualities. James 4:8 tells us to "draw close to God, and he will draw close to you." So he's inviting us to get to know him.
