The Way To Heavens Gates.The plan of Salvation
First, we must hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17).
Second, one must believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:16). Jesus said: "...if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins" (John 8:24).
Third, one must repent of his sins in order to be saved (Acts 17:30,31). Jesus commanded that "repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem" (Luke 24:47).
Fourth, one must confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:16). This great truth is the very foundation upon which the church of Christ is built (Matthew 16:18; Acts 4:11,12; 1 Corinthians 3:11).
Fifth, one must be baptized in order to be saved. Jesus said: "He who believes and is baptized will be saved" (Mark 16:16).
