Some good news for you!
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is great news because it shows us the work Jesus has done and also the way we can receive the benefits of that work. Here are the two simple steps you can take in order to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Step One: Accept what God says in Romans 3:23 about every one of us. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Good works or a good life can not get you to Heaven. Without Jesus Christ as your Savior you are without hope and headed for everlasting punishment for your sins.
Step Two: Believe that Jesus Christ died, that he was buried and that he rose again from the grave to pay for your sins. Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; ... he was buried, and ... he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: and ... he was seen. (1 Corinthians 15:3-5)
In reality these two steps are but one step: the Bible calls them repentance and faith. Repentance is agreeing with God that you are a sinner, and faith is agreeing with God that Jesus is the only Savior. After you are saved you need to tell others that you have been saved; that is what we mean by making a public confession of your salvation. Not only should you tell individuals, but you also need to tell the church. Telling others does not save you but is the first step of obedience after your are saved.
