- God must be desired. It is not sufficient to want to escape punishment and have a heaven devoid of God.
- One must recognize in some degree his or her own sinfulness, separation from God, and position as being worthy of God’s just judgment.
- One must hope only in Christ as his or her own means of being saved from God’s wrath and reconciled to Him.
- One must repent of His sin, and based on God’s gift of faith, pursue righteousness.
