Necessary Steps to Salvation 

Theologically, salvation is defined as a spiritually transforming experience of being born again in Jesus Christ as savior. Affirming this truth, Jesus told Nicodemus “…'You must be born again' John 3:8. Plus, He told Zacchaeus "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost" Luke 19:9-10. Plus to highlight the spiritual significance of salvation, Jesus explained “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit" – John 3:6. God established His plan of salvation when He sent Jesus Christ to die for the sin of all Mankind – John 3:16. With His death, burial and resurrection, Jesus redeemed us from eternal doom, which is the final consequence of sin – John 8:24. Therefore as Jesus testified, salvation comes through Him only  - …"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me - John 14:6. This means that Jesus is our only path to God and it is through Him alone, can we obtain salvation. No religion, moral lifestyle, church membership, philosophy or religious ritual can grant salvation. It is only through believing and faith in Jesus Christ that God forgives our sins to give us His promise of eternal life -  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life”- John 3:14-15. Salvation is the total embodiment of God’s love which He offers to every human being without regard for race, gender, religion, or social status. God wants us to come to Him just as we are, and with true repentance seek His forgiveness. Jesus says "… I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance" Mark 2:17.

Accepting God’s offer of salvation is the single greatest life changing decision anyone can make. It not only confirms our spiritual relationship with God through Jesus Christ, but also guarantees our eternal destiny when this life is over. Jesus tells us that we have two life ending choices; one is eternal life in the presence of God and the other is everlasting death in hell “…
And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life" Matthew 25:46. Furthermore, Jesus made it clear that while we are alive is the time to decide for salvation - "…The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." Mark 1:15. Jesus’ teaching gives us four necessary steps to salvation. The first is to believe. We must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and our savior – John 3:17. Second is to acknowledge our sinful nature with genuine repentance. Third is to release our faith as we ask for God’s forgiveness. Fourth is to be confident of our spiritual rebirth in Jesus Christ with the promise of eternal life. Furthermore, Jesus assures us that with salvation, our regenerated nature responds to the presence of God’s Holy Spirit who is with us to guide and strengthen us spiritually – “The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17.
