How To Be Saved – [6 Steps To Receive Christ & Eternal Life]


Want to know how to be saved from your sins and have eternal life? If you are such a person wanting to turn away from your evils ways, you are in the right place.

Looking at the current world events such as the coronavirus, we indeed are living in the end times and after this pandemic, this world as you know it won’t be the same.

Therefore, this coronavirus is your chance for you to come to God in repentance because something worse than this pandemic is coming & Christ might retune at any moment.

If you are not saved yet from your sins through the precious blood of Jesus Christ which was once shed on the cross, this post is for you.

You need salvation as it’s the most precious and priceless gift you will ever have here on earth and in the world to come in eternity and without it, you will be lost for all eternity.

Remember, it’s appointed for man to die once and after death, it’s the judgement you are waiting for and nothing but your deeds will matter on that day. (Hebrews 9:27).

Family, friends, children, spouse, your earthly accomplishments won’t matter on that day. It will be every man for himself.

But the good news is the there is an escape from this judgment through Christ and you don’t have to join the crowd in the way of destruction (Matthew 7:13,14).

Why You Need Salvation?

The answer to that question is simple. You need salvation so that you can have eternal life in Jesus and not be dammed with the devil and his angels in hell for all eternity.

In short, you need salvation to be saved from the wrath to come as one day we are all going to give an account of our earthly lives & our deeds on the day of judgement.

If you die unsaved now, your soul will go straight to hell to await the great white throne judgement and you don’t want to be there.

Kindly spare some time to watch the video below about the great white throne judgement to get a glimpse of what it will be like.

Remember, Christ paid a great price to save your precious & priceless soul from eternal ruin, which will befall all wicked people who reject Christ’s love gift of eternal life.

Some people might say they don’t need to be saved from anything but that is Satan deceiving their hearts and when they realize their terrible mistake, it will be too late.

Don’t be such a person, please. You don’t need to go to hell with the devil and his accursed fallen angels. Come to the lord while it’s the day as tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.

With that said, if you want to be saved and you truly mean it from your heart, here are the simple steps on how to be saved from your sins, each one discussed in detail below.

How To Get Saved: 6 Steps

Here are the 6 steps on how to get saved from sin and the wrath to come which will befall all wicked people who love not the truth but have pleasure in their sins or unrighteousness.

1. Deny Self
2. Realize You Are A Sinner
3. Believe Christ Died For You & Rose From The Dead
4. Confess & Forsake Your Sins
5. Accept Christ In Your Heart.
6. Go And Sin No More

1. Deny Self

If you want to be saved, you must be willing to deny self as self is what will keep you from acknowledging your sinfulness & make you think you are a good person.

Remember, we are all unclean thing and all our righteousnesses or righteous deeds are nothing but filthy rags as they are contaminated with sin & ulterior motives (Isaiah 64:6).

A lot of people think they can earn their way to heaven by doing good deeds which is but a blatant lie from Satan as that way of thinking is all about self-righteousness.

The truth of the matter is that you are unclean and unless you repent, you will likewise perish as your good works can’t atone for your sins (Romans 3:19-23).

Remember, you are saved by grace through faith only and not of works lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Self is the reason why most people think they are good people but these same people tell lies, gossip about other people, merely deceiving themselves.

If you are not willing to deny yourself, then you aren’t fit to be Christ’s disciple and you will not see the need for getting saved.

Christ made it clear that whosoever desire to come after him must deny himself and take up his cross daily to follow him (Luke 9:23).

2. Realize You Are A Sinner Deserving Of Hell

The second step you must do to get saved is to realize that you are a sinner and that nothing you can do in your power can save you and only Christ can (Romans 3:23).

Remember, we are all natural-born sinners because our first parents, Adam and Eve sinned and none can claim to be holy by him/herself.

Therefore, we all have a sinful nature which Christ needs to deal with at salvation so that you can break free from the power of sin sending many people to eternal damnation.

This is why people kill each other, lie, watch naked women on the internet (pornography), steal, defile themselves with women or men (fornication or sex before marriage) etc.

All that evil people do against each other is as a result of the sinful nature we all inherently have passed from Adam and Eve, our first parents who sinned.

But if you have decided that you don’t want anything to do with sin anymore and want to become clean, all you need to do is come to Christ & will gladly receive you with open arms.

Remember, God loves you and that’s why he sacrificed his only begotten son just for you so that you don’t perish but have everlasting life (John3:16).

Even in your sins Gods still loves you but you must be willing to respond to that love gift of eternal life by accepting Christ in your heart.

3. Believe That Christ Died For You & Rose Again

After realizing that you are a sinner and we all are by birth, you need to believe that Christ died for you to save you from sin and that He rose the third day

This step is crucial because if you don’t believe that Christ died for your sins, you can’t get saved as you are saved by grace through faith and it’s impossible to please God without faith.

Instead, you will think that your sins are too much for you to be forgiven which makes a lot of people doubt their salvation even if they confess their sins.

But remember, God didn’t consult your unworthiness to love you. Rather, he loves you according to his riches in mercy demonstrated by the son he gave for all to die for us.

No human being on this earth can love you as God did as with a human being; love is all about what that person can get from you.

So, just believe that Christ can forgive all your sins you have committed up to this point. Be sincere with yourself and freely come to him and he won’t reject you (John 6:37).

4. Confess & Forsake Your Sins.

The third step to take if you want to be saved is confessing your sins and saying bye to them for good and resolving in your heart never to return from them (1 John 1:9).

Remember if you cover your sins and you are unwilling to turn away from them, you can’t be saved as there is still the love of sin in your heart you need to deal with. (Proverbs 28:13).

This is the reason why most people don’t have a definite salvation experience in their lives even after repenting, they still go back to their old sinful ways.

Well, that is because they have still not forsaken their sins and the love of sin is still in their heart and I used to be such a person, too.

Remember, to obtain mercy, you must be willing to forsake all your evil ways and only then will you truly experience a true change and transformation of life eluding most people.

Most people are fake converts which are why even after repenting, they still go back to their dirty sins like stealing, fornication, pornography, etc. like a dog returning to its vomit.

But if you don’t want to return to your vomit, be honest with yourself and ask for the grace of the Lord to teach you to deny all ungodliness and worldly lusts and he will surely do it (Titus 2:11).

5. Accept Christ In Your Life.

After confessing your sins, you need to accept Christ into your heart and life so that you don’t go back to your old sinful ways.

As he is the only one that can cleanse you from all your unrighteousness and filthiness of the heart, flesh & spirit through his precious blood he once shed on the cross from your sins.

Just come as you are and he won’t reject you so long as you humble yourself and recognize your sinfulness and the need for a saviour and that your good works can’t ‘save you.

Only he can save you from the wrath to come and no other else of the false religions of this world can save your precious soul from eternal ruin (Acts4:12).

Christ can come at any time and you don’t want to miss heaven for this wicked and nasty world and if you are unprepared you will remain and you will be under the Antichrist.

So, do yourself a favour by not rejecting Christ and if you do so, I can promise you you will be eternally grateful for that decision you made. You can recite the salvation prayer in the picture below to be saved.

6. Go And Sin No More.

Lastly, after doing all the above 4 steps & prayed the sinner’s prayer above with all your heart, you are truly saved just as simple as that if you meant in your heart and all you have to do is go and sin no more.

Ask for Christ grace to keep you holy, pure and unspotted from the filthiness of this perverse world as no unclean thing will enter heaven on that final day. (Titus2:11).

Make a promise to God that you won’t go back to your old sinful ways by his grace of course and not by your own effort.

Indeed, you must not go back to your old sinful ways like a dog returning to its vomit. If you do so, you are defiled and unfit for heaven as nothing unclean will ever get there (Rev 21:27).

Therefore, from now on, vow to saintly live righteously in this perverse world and don’t listen to those who tell you that it’s impossible to live a holy life.

Just because they have failed doesn’t mean you can’t as the grace of Jesus Christ sufficient from you to keep you from falling back into sin.

Remember, don’t love this world and the things that are in it as it will eventually pass away with its wickedness but you will abide forever if you make Christ your foundation.

Nothing in this world be it money, success or material things can equate to the value of your precious & priceless soul Christ died for (Mark 8:36,37).


Now that you know how to get saved and have eternal life through Christ Jesus, what are you waiting for? Just repeat the above steps to get saved if you haven’t done so (Isaiah 55:6-9).

After accepting Christ in your life, resolve in your heart that you won’t back to your old sinful ways as most fake converts do. Just merely saying a sinner’s prayer isn’t enough.

You need to do your part to cut off anything that causes you to sin and defile yourself. If you don’t do that, it’s just a matter of time before you return to your vomit.

This can be immoral boyfriend and girlfriend relationships, drinking alcohol, pornography, lusting after the opposite sex, fornication, lesbianism, homosexuality and much more.

Don’t hate your precious soul by rejecting Christ with this one life you have and if you die without Christ, you are lost forever no second chances. I love you and God loves you the best.

Remember, those who reject Christ will be sent away to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire along with the devil and his fallen angels (Matthew 25:46).

But the righteous and all those who accept Christ in their life if you have done so will have eternal life and joy indescribable when all is said and done (1Coritnians 2:9).

On the flip side, if you have accepted Christ after reading this post, congrats for being a new citizen of heaven and holy angels in heaven are rejoicing for you.

Now what you need to do next is make a commitment to follow Christ till the end and vow never to go back to your old lifestyle. Other things you need to do are:

  • Find a bible believing church that teaches the whole counsel of the word of God as this is important in developing your faith.

  • Be baptized in water by full immersion as a full confirmation that you are now dead to sin and alive in Christ.

  • Fellowship with your fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord who are zealous in serving him and avoid/forsake sinful friends who may draw you back into your olds sinful lifestyle.

  • Share your salvation experience and what Christ has done for your life so that others can be saved too through your testimony. In doing you, you are laying up incorruptible treasures for yourself in heaven. Remember those who win souls are wise and will shine like the sun in heaven forever, Daniel 12:2,3, Proverbs11:30. Lastly, don’t backslide and go back into sin as the Lord has no pleasure in those who draw back into perdition, Hebrews 10:38.

  • Have regular quiet time early in the morning & read your bible daily to develop yourself spiritually and to fully equip you to overcome any temptations Satan has set for the day.

With that said, if you found this post beneficial to you, kindly share it with everyone you know so that they too can obtain salvation as time is short. See You in Heaven.
