asked this question of Paul and Silas:
"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"

and you will be saved, and your entire household."
Acts 16:29-31 TLB
Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth ...
Do not work for food that spoils,
but for food that endures to eternal life,
which the Son of Man will give you. On him
God the Father has placed his seal of approval."
Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the
works God requires?"
Jesus answered, "The work of God is this:
to believe in the one he has sent."
John 6:26-29 (NIV)
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.
He who comes to me will never go hungry, and
he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
But as I told you,
you have seen me and still you do not believe.
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and
whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will
but to do the will of him who sent me.
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose
none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at
the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who
looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal
life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
John 6:34-40 (NIV)
Jesus said to Matha, "I am the resurrection and the life.

the Christ, the Son of God,
who was to come into the world."
Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me, he
does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent
me. When he looks at me, he sees the one who
sent me. I have come into the world as a light, so that
no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
John 12:44-46 (NIV)
Jesus did many other miraculous signs
in the presence of his disciples,
which are not recorded in this book.
But these are written
that you may believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,
and that by believing you may have life in his name.
John 20:30-31 (NIV)
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the
Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand
years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his
promise, as some understand slowness.
He is patient with you,
not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance.
Peter 3:8-9 (NIV)
