The following scriptures show that salvation comes through believing on Christ:

As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. John 1.12

He that believes on the Son has everlasting life… Jn 3.36

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one that sees the Son and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6.40

Verily, verily, I say to you, he that believes on me has everlasting life. John 6.47

He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water (This spoke he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.) John 7.38-39a

To allow another to believe on Christ ask them if they have heard the good news or declare "good news" (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4)." - The gospel
