Where Do I Begin?
Romans Road: THE PATH TO SALVATION AND ETERNAL LIFE
God has given us the Bible as a "blueprint" how to live our life. Some call it His love letter to man who was created in His image. In it He clearly lays out His plan for salvation.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 3:23 (ESV)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23 (ESV)
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8 (ESV)
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Romans 10:13 (ESV)
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him...
Revelation 3:20 (ESV)
Because, 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.
Romans 10:9-10 (ESV)
But to all who did receive him,who believed in his name,he gave the right to become children of God,
John 1:12 (ESV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

The next step
You can pray this prayer. It is not these words that save you. It is your sincere faith that what God says is true and that you are turning from your sin and following God.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will.
In your name, amen.”
