How Can I Be Saved?
we have all sinned
sin separates you from god
god sent his son
jesus died for your sins
jesus rose again
you must believe
To be saved, you must first believe. You must believe that Jesus is the son of God. You must believe that Jesus died for your sins. You must believe that Jesus rose again.
"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." ~Romans 10:9
you must repent
You must pray to God & confess your sins to Him. You must ask forgiveness, commit your heart to Him, turn away from your sin and ask God to save you. Sin imprisons you. Only through God can you break the bonds of sin.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." ~1 John 1:19
If you followed these steps with all your heart, you are now saved. You are now born again as a part of the Kingdom of God.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."

Find a church family
You need to find a Bible believing church where you can become part of a church family. There you will find mentors. Soldiers for Christ who can help you understand the Bible and encourage your growth in your faith. A new Christian is like a tender sprout. Being surrounded by those who are firmly established will help you weather the storms and grow strong. This also gives you an opportunity to worship God, celebrate Jesus and hear the Word of God.
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." ~Matthew 18:20
