If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Simply put – believe deep down in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and this is the first step to following Jesus! After doing this, please talk to a pastor about baptism. Finally, here are some simple next steps.
- Plug into a Christian community that believes the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, also declaring that the Holy Spirit is now empowering His people to bring life to the world
- Understand all the expectations for following Jesus.
- Begin explorations into the teachings of Jesus, with the support and guidance of your community.
- Look for revelations of Jesus in your community and life, asking for Him to begin bringing more revelations to the world through you.
- Keep an eye out for opportunities Jesus desires to give you and look for mentors to help you discern opportunities.
