In the salvation of man's soul there are two necessary parts: God's part and man's part. God's part is the big part: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9). The love that God felt for man led him to send Christ to the world to redeem man. The life and teachings of Jesus, the sacrifice on the cross, and the proclaiming of the gospel to man constitute God's part in salvation.
Though God's part is the big part, man's part is also necessary if man is to reach heaven. Man must comply with the conditions of pardon that the Lord has given. Man's part is clearly set forth in the following steps:

  • Hear the gospel (Acts 11:14)

  • Believe the gospel (Mark 16:15-16)

  • Repent of past sins (Acts 17:30-31)

  • Confess Jesus as the Son of God (Romans 10:9-10)

  • Be baptized for the forgiveness of sins (1 Peter 3:21)
