It all begins when a person accepts Jesus as their personal Savior. A new birth takes place in a persons heart (spirit).

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:5-6 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

This a work of the Holy Spirit acting upon our faith in and confession of Jesus Christ as our Savior.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

It's not about religion or church membership, affiliation, being baptized, being a nice person, keeping the ten commandments or any other work; it's all about accepting Jesus Christ as ones Savior and being born again. This is what is pleasing and acceptable unto God.

Galatians 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

2Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

If you haven't done this yet. Just pray and ask Jesus Christ to be your Savior, to forgive all your sins. Once you do this from your heart, then tell someone (confess Him) that Jesus Christ is your Savior.

Please notice

16.  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

1 John 3:2   Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it
is the gift of God:

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

May these scriptures instill confidence and peace in your heart that by faith in Jesus Christ, you are a child of God.
