Friend do you want the real truth about salvation? I believe you do! Jesus said unto Nicodemus "Except a man be born of the Water and of the spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. st John 3:5. This can only be fulfilled by water baptism in Jesus name only and speaking in tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance. Peter said Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and yes shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38, Jesus backs these words up also in Luke 24:47. It reads "And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."
I Believe That is United Pentecostal Church Doctrine and Not Generally Agreed upon by most Christian Denominations and Affiliations.
I'm glad you asked. To be saved, you must first, admit that you've been a sinner, then confess and repent of all thy sins, and the Lord will not only save and forgive you, but he forgets (no more remember them anymore).
The answer is as simple as asking God to forgive you of your sins & asking God to live in your heart, mind, & soul. I pray this will help you. God bless.
