God is good, and He loves you no matter what you have done in your life. He loves you so much that 2,000 years ago He sent Jesus to die for the forgiveness of your sins. He was put to death on the cross, taking the punishment for all our wrongs.
God proved that Jesus’ death was the way to life by raising Him from the dead. The cross is like a bridge of love that restores the relationship between God and people like us.
If you believe in Jesus, the Son of God and accept what He did for you, the Bible promises that you can have a personal relationship with God here on earth and for eternity in heaven.
What does the Bible say
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved“ – Romans 10:9-10.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” – Ephesians 2:8
“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses” – Acts 13:38-39
Pray this prayer loud
“Jesus, I believe in You. I believe You are the Son of God, that You died for the forgiveness of my sins, and that You rose again. I repent for my sins and I ask for forgiveness. I believe you died on the cross to save me and I confess You as my Lord and Saviour. Come into my heart, and make me the way You want me to be. Send the Holy Spirit to be with me. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me! Amen.”

If you believe in what Jesus did for you and want to follow Him, now that you prayed the above prayer I strongly recommend you to get baptized in water (full immersion as Jesus did) and connect with a Spirit-filled believer that could pray for you to receive the Holy Spirit.
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit – Acts 2:38.
“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life”. – Romans 6:4
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8.
Christ in You
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
“I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” – Galatians 2:20
“But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” – 1 Corinthians 6:11
The journey continues with understanding what is your new identity and what it means to be a new creation, a child of God, filled with the Holy Spirit.
