What Must I Do to be Saved?

If you would like to read further about what it means to become a Christian and why you need to be saved, GotQuestions.org has put together several of their articles that answer the above question: Gospel Presentations.

We are all sinners (Romans 3:23) who deserve God's wrath (Romans 6:23), but God in his love and mercy sent his son Jesus (Immanuel, God with us) to take the punishment we deserve by dying on the cross; three days later, Jesus rose from the dead. May the Lord open your eyes to the glorious truth of the Gospel, and may you repent of your sins and come to believe this good news.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son." - John 3:16-18
"And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” - John 6:39-40
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. - Romans 3:25-26 
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. - 1 Corinthians 15:3-6
