1. He must know that there is one God, and He is the

creator of everything.
The Bible clearly teaches that there is a God, and he is the CREATOR of all things. For a
sinner to be saved, he must acknowledge this fact and realize salvation is a personal
relationship between man and God. Nobody gets saved unless they first admit there is a
God. Below are some verses that prove their is a God, the creator of man.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing
made that was made.

Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for
thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord
of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

2. He must know that he himself is a sinner.

Before a sinner can be saved, he must first see himself as what he truly is, a vile
transgressor, that has sinned against a holy God. No one gets saved without realizes his
need to be saved. The need is because man's sin separates himself from God. The
following verses speak of man's sin.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by
sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

3. He must know that because of his sin, he will go

directly to Hell when he dies.
A sinner must realize his sins will not take him to heaven, but rather to hell, and that
salvation is deliverance from the penalty of sin. Without seeing his impending doom (a
Christless Hell), a sinner will not be scared, and feel the great urgency to be saved. Hell
is real, and sinners must know they will burn there forever, unless they come to Jesus
Christ. Here are some verses on Hell.

Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the
soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into
the lake of fire.

4. He must know that God came to die and pay for his
sins on the cross.
A sinner must come to the cross of Calvary and meet Jesus there, who died in his place for
his sins in his place. Salvation is only through the substitute of Christ, the innocent
suffering for the guilty. A sinner must see this in order to completely understand what
Christ has done for him. The following verses show Christ as our great sacrifice.

1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached
unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached
unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how
1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.

2 Corinthians 5:18 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we
might be made the righteousness of God in him.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the

5. He must realize that salvation is free a gift of

eternal life offered only through Jesus Christ.
A sinner should realize that he will someday die, and the reason for death is sin. He
should then understand salvation is being "born again" or given new, ETERNAL life.
That is to say he'll live for all eternity with Jesus Christ if he gets saved.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

6. He must understand that salvation is obtained only by

A sinner must fully understand that does not come by DOING good works, but rather by
trusting only in the WORK of Christ, that's been DONE on the cross, some 2000 years
ago. Salvation is by relying upon, or believing in this meritous act of God's love for
sinners. The following verses prove this important Bible doctrine:

Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we
shall be saved, even as they.

Acts 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be
saved, and thy house.

Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the
deeds of the law.
Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by
the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be
justified by the faith

of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be

Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that
we might be justified by faith.

Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the
ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his
blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the
forbearance of


Salvation is only by Faith in his shed blood!!! A sinner must understand his sins
are completely paid for, and he was forgiven all sins, past, present, and future, when
he believed upon Christ.

7. He must understand that being saved means that your

sins are gone!!!
When a person comes to God for the salvation of his sins, he cannot think he is only
forgiven of past sins, but not future sins. Every Catholic goes to confession, or to the
Mass, thinking IT will give him forgiveness of sins. In other words, he's thinking
salvation is not ETERNAL, it's only temporary. But Bible salvation is forgiveness of
ALL sins! And when a sinner is forgiven, he's FORGIVEN FOR EVER! Just look at
the following verses:

Acts 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which
ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in
Christ Jesus:

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him.
"Justification" In God's eyes, it's Just if I'ed never sinned!

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you
upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh
an atonement for the soul.

Atonement only comes through blood sacrifice!!!

Romans 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus
Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

A Christian has atonement with God. "Atonement" means a

sinner has "At one ment" with God. Sin is taken out of the
way, and he has access to God!

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of
sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first
begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved
us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

A Christian is washed from his sins by God's own blood, at the moment
he trusts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour.

Are you washed in the blood? Have you been born again? Why not trust the shed blood
of Jesus Christ today?
