9) …if with your mouth you confess jesus as lord and in your heart believe that god brought him back to life, you shall be saved. 10) for with the heart men believe and obtain righteousness, and with the mouth they make confession and obtain salvation.
this is a very common scripture in almost all churches. no matter what your ‘denomination’ or belief this is one common ground – the belief that we are saved by believing in our heart that jesus christ was raised from the dead and confessing that with our mouth. when we believe and confess that we believe, we can be certain that we have become christ’s.
