Can you explain how and when are we adopted into the Family of God?

The requirement for going to Heaven is that each person must receive Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour (John 1:12). John 3:3 says: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Although it does not have to be a public confession, the church service is the most convenient time for a person to be saved. There is a definite request in evangelical services for anyone who wants to be saved to do so during the altar call. God receives a person solely because he accepts Jesus Christ as his Saviour.

The Bible teaches that when we receive Jesus Christ, He gives us the gift of everlasting life (John 3:16, Romans 6:23). At this time we become a child of God (I John 3:1-3).
