What Must I Do To Be Saved?

"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"
They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved,"
(Acts 16:30-31)
The Roman Road to Salvation
God Is Holy
Romans 1:20-21: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
Why We Need Salvation – The Fact of Our Sin
Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Man’s Inability to Save Himself
Romans 3:10: “As it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one.”
The Penalty of Sin
Romans 6:23a: “For the wages of sin is death.”
The Requirement of God
Romans 5:9: “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.”
God’s Plan of Salvation
Romans 5:8: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Acts 10:39-41 "We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. "God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.”
God’s Promise of Eternal Life
Romans 6:23b: “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Man’s Responsibility
Romans 10:9-10: “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
Romans 10:13: “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Results of Salvation
Romans 8:1: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
Romans 5:1: “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Sinners Prayer for Salvation
"Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry. I know I cannot save myself. I need a Savior. I believe by faith that Jesus, your Son, shed His blood and died on the cross to pay for my sin. I believe He arose from the grave to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin. I ask You to forgive my sin and come into my heart. I trust you as my Savior and receive you as my Lord. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me."
