Belief In Jesus Being the Son of God
First we have some bible verses which show us clearly that belief in Jesus being the Son of God is linked to salvation and eternal life!
John 3:16-18 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath NOT believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God."

John 11:25-27 "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
