So often we present salvation as something very complex, but God never intended it to be that way. God's plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand. It's as easy as ABC.
Admit that you are a sinner and in need of salvation from sin. All persons need salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin. Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God's authority over our lives.
Romans 3:10 – None of us are perfect, we are all sinners
Romans 3:23 – “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death...”
Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is the only way to obtain salvation – to get to heaven. Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us.
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 14:6 – “Jesus saith to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
Confess your sin and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others.
I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Romans 10:9-10 – “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
