No matter what category you may fall under, we will show you, using the Bible as evidence, how to be saved.

This is probably the most important post we will ever publish on our blog.

Before we dive into the how, first we need to explain the why.

Why Do We Need To Be Saved?

The reason why we need to be saved is because human beings are sinners and we have all fallen short in God’s eyes.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

Romans 3:23

Because we have all sinned, we are headed to Hell.

This is why we need to be saved.

Thankfully, God in all His grace, provided a way for sinners such as you and I to be saved (This is the gospel of Jesus Christ).

How To Be Saved According To The Bible

Gospel Gain’s ultimate goal is to spread awareness and knowledge about Christianity, Jesus Christ, the gospel, and the Bible in hopes that it will eventually lead someone to salvation.

If even one person is saved through our blog, then all of our efforts will have been worth it!

With that being said, below we’ve listed the steps you can take to be saved.

  1. Repent of your sins.

You need to realize and agree with the fact that you are indeed a sinner and are headed for Hell.

  1. Confess that Jesus is Lord and believe with all your heart that Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead for our sins.

“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


If you are ready to be saved, but aren’t quite sure how to go about it, you can start with a simple prayer like this:

“Father God, I know that I am a sinner that is headed to Hell and I am in need of a savior. I confess and repent of my sins and I ask for Your forgiveness. Thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to save us. I know that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead to conquer sin. I trust that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen.”

If you prayed and believed with all your heart, then you are saved.

Have a blessed day.
