The Bible teaches that salvation comes by the grace of God,through faith in Jesus.One cannot work for salvation;For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.Ephesians 2:8,9
Romans 10: 9 through 13 says;That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
This is as simply as believing and asking.No works,just faith.
We do not have to make salvation a complicated thing.There is no 5 step plan to salvation.Just believing and calling.It is a gift not a wage to be earned
