If you still feel ready to convert, then talk to a priest about how you feel. It should take a few weeks for you to get comfortable before you get baptizied. You should ask yourself why you want to become a Christian. Is it because you really believe in God and want to follow His rules? Or is it because you wanna seem cool? If you said the first question then good luck on your choices!!!!!!

But if you insist, you've got research to do. There are many different types of Christianity.
There's the traditional Catholic, the only one that actually dates back to the time of Christ. Lots of pointless ritual and tithing to the church, and lots of "Sunday Catholics" which basically means the only participation they take in the religion is showing up to church on Sunday.
There's the protestants. Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterian, possibly Lutherans. Not too sure about the Lutherans. Much shorter tradition based on being a good bit louder and more energetic about God. Experiences vary more based on the specific church you're attending than the specific denomination. From personal experience, most of the nicest genuine Christians I've met come from this group. Sadly for the world they also produce the smartest of the insane fundamentalists. Google "Westboro Baptist Church" for more information.
Then there's evangelicals. For more information on what exactly evangelicals are like, google the movie "Jesus Camp". They're generally literalistic which means the bible is the direct word of God and things like "stoning to death" are good cultural mainstays which should have been retained for modern society. The stupider side of the insane fundamentalists, mostly though willful ignorance.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to research your way in the door of any one of these Christian factions. Entrance is involved and different depending on the sect and often involves everything from sponsorship and participation to study in the beliefs of the particular sect.
MCC answered Thursday April 21 2011, 1:38 am: Nice, that would be the best decision you ever made in your life because your securing your soul for eternity in heaven. Salvation in Christ is very easy. Just confess your sins to God. Acknowledge that you've sinned and its only through the precious blood of Christ that you can attain forgivenes of sins and entry to heaven. You've got to Belive that your sins are forgiven. Then get yourself a King James bible, and then find a good a bible beliving church(not all churches are.) you can join church activities where you can meet some good christians so that they can help you grow in Christ.
Email me or give me your email address. I wil send you a short article about salvation in Christ. Its the simplest thing to do yet the most IMPORTANT decision you could ever make in this life.
