So if I accepted Jesus and sin does that mean I wasn't true in accepting Jesus?
No, it does not mean.
Even Christ's followers sin. But they do not want to sin. We do not want to sin and are sorry if it happened to us that we sinned.
Thorough explanation can be found here https://www.gotquestions.org/do-Christians-sin.html
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

It's God's promise that we are secure in Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

It means that, for one who has placed their faith, trust and commitment to and in Christ, that He promises to give them salvation and ETERNAL life. And eternal life is both FOREVER (there can never be such a thing as temporary ETERNAL life!), and it begins at the moment of salvation - not just after our life on earth. It begins here, ends NEVER!
