Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and Be Saved

o Acts 26:1-29, Paul’s Defense before Agrippa.
o Acts 4:12: We are saved by grace and through faith and trust in Jesus Christ. There is no other way to Heaven but through Jesus Christ. There are only two places in eternity: Heaven and Hell.

o Acts 2:37-39: To be saved, you must be called.
