Here is where it begins for everyone, that is knowing God, knowing Jesus. Knowing God is everlasting life. If you believe in the heart God raised Him (Jesus) from the dead and confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus you will be saved. Once you start you continue the same way. God is a faith God and faith is believing in your heart and speaking with your mouth the things God agrees with. Jesus Christ is called the Word of God made flesh, this means speaking the Word of God increases the salvation believing and speaking, it brings a resurrection of that thing.
