If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10 NIV
The first step is to believe that Jesus is the LORD. He is the promised Messiah. Believe that He died on the cross for our sins and was resurrected. He returned to Heaven, leaving us with the promise of His return. As we wait for His return, we live a Christ-like life with the help of the Holy Spirit.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:1-3 NIV
