Man’s first step toward being born again is godly sorrow that works repentance. In order for a man to be saved he must confess Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and believe in his heart that God has raised Him from the dead Romans 10:9-13. Man believes in the heart but confession of faith is made with the mouth unto Salvation.The Bible states that salvation is by grace through faith, not by works Ephesians 2:8.
The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life 2 Cor 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12. The Bible did not only say we would be saved; it said that we would have “eternal life.” This is the Greek word ‘zoe’ which literally means the same life God has in Himself. This is a life of completeness and wholeness. Jesus took judgment upon Himself so that we could receive eternal life – which includes health, wholeness and victory.
