I am glad you asked this all-important question and I trust you are being sincere. I am not going to hold back in my answer, for I truly care about your precious, immortal soul and your eternal destiny. In a word, you should “convert from Islam to Christianity” because you can only be saved through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and the Koran does NOT teach this. Here is what Jesus Christ Himself taught about how to be saved and have eternal life:

“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, HE WILL BE SAVED, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep” (John 10:9-11).

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE” (John 3:16).

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me HAS EVERLASTING LIFE” (John 6:47).

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).

These words are crystal-clear. Jesus, the Son of God, was sent into this world by God the Father to SAVE SINNERS and to give them EVERLASTING LIFE. He willingly came and gave His life on the cross and He has promised that if you believe in Him as your Savior, YOU HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. He is the ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN. The Apostle Peter echoed this same truth in Acts 4:10-12, “Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised up from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by your builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, FOR THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN BY WHICH WE MUST BE SAVED.” Dear friend, if you don’t “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ” you cannot be saved. Jesus declared in John 8:24, “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” You MUST believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He became a Man in order to give His life for you on the cross to pay for your sins. If you refuse to believe on Him as your Savior, you will indeed “die in your sins,” which means you will have to be punished for your sins in the lake of fire forever and ever. “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son SHALL NOT SEE LIFE, BUT THE WRATH OF GOD ABIDES ON HIM” (John 3:36).

Here is what the Koran teaches about Jesus Christ: “O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, WAS BUT A MESSENGER OF ALLAH…so believe in Allah and His messengers” (sura 4, ayat 171). The Koran puts Jesus on the same level as any other prophet and they deny that He was the eternal Son of God who became a true Man in order to be die for sinners. To the “faithful in Islam” Jesus WAS BUT A MESSENGER OF ALLAH. But as we have seen from the Bible, Jesus was indeed more than a messenger; He was the Son of God (see Matthew 16:13-17). Muslims deny this and by doing so they cannot be saved. We will quote again what Jesus said in John 8:24, “If you don’t believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” They also deny that He died on the cross to save sinners, but we have seen that He gave His life (on the cross) in order to give believing sinners eternal life (see John 3:14-16 with Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 2:9, 14-15).

My earnest prayer for you as that you will “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved” (Acts 16:31). If you do, you will be saved and have everlasting life (as we have seen from the scriptures cited). This will be your “conversion to Christ.” It will be the beginning of a life that is not only everlasting, but a life that is filled with love, joy, peace and many other blessings, for as Jesus said, “I am come that they may have life, and that THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.”  (DO)  (550.5)
