God's plan for your salvation

The scriptures show that many things must take place in order for someone to have his sins forgiven:

God saves those who do these things, and adds them to his church: Acts 2:47

And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

When one does these things, he calls on the name of the Lord: Romans 10:13

for "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."

And now I put a question to you that was put to Paul before he became a Christian:

And now why do you delay? Arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.
Acts 22:16
