Most Christian believers are confused about what is required to have salvation. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal life for those who obey them. Not just some of the verses like some would like to quote, like just believing in Jesus Christ.
If we believe in Jesus Christ we must obey Him. We must obey His commands, His gospel, the words that He spoke, all of the commands of Jesus Christ. We must repent, turn away from sin, turn away from going after our own desires and our own ways, and we have to go after Jesus Christ. Stop sinning and then be baptized in water, and Jesus promised to give His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in those who obey His words, and the Holy Spirit will guide them into all truth.
The words of Jesus Christ are plain and simple. Go and read them in the Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and obey them, and Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to you. You will know Him for real. He will guide you into all truth and you will not be confused anymore. People are confused because they listen to other people, obey the words of Jesus, be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will walk in the Light, you will know the truth and the truth will make you free. Jesus Christ is away and the life and the truth, there is no other. Obey Him, obey the gospel of Jesus Christ and you will have life.
May Jesus bless you.
