Acts 2:38 – Step 1
Everyone needs to be saved, because we are all sinners.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
"As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one."
Since we are all sinners, what do we need to do to be saved? First you must believe that He is and seek Him
"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."
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
We seek Him when we come to realize that we are all sinners and accept Jesus as the Savior and confess our sins to the Lord.
"For with the heart, man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
What is Repentance?
When we confess our sins and ask God for forgiveness of our sins and forsake them, we are repenting. Repentance is a very important part of salvation and Jesus spoke strongly about it …
"I tell you, Nay; but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Repentance prepares our hearts to be born again.
"From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
