    Mark 16:
    14
    Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked
    their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who
    had seen Him after He had risen.

    15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
    16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

    Read the Gospel of John, it was written specifically to tell people how to have life (Eternal Life), what and who to believe in.

    And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

    An excellent place to start. WHO He is=The Son of God, before what He is=Lord and Savior.

    If you experience Christ in your heart, you cannot help but believe in him. And that all the bible says about him is true. Have you experienced him? Or do I need to describe what it is like?

    So you experience Christ in your heart, and then believe what exactly?
    The Word of Your Testimony?
    What do you preach to someone who has never heard the Gospel.?

    2 Corinthians 11:4. For if he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached,
    or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    1 Peter 3:15. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense
    to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.

    Revelation 12:11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

    What was preached that enabled you to experience Him in your heart?
    What did you believe exactly?

    What do i say to a person on the street.

    If you want Eternal Life. Then believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah, from the prophecies of The Tanakh and trust in The Messiah for the free gift of Gods Eternal Life.

    If said person trust in the Messiah for Eternal Life, they have it and have been born again, they are now a child of God. never to lose God's freely given, Eternal Life.

    The scriptures provided in the op are alluding to the resurrection. The deeper inference recognizes and acknowledges the Eternal Power of the Godhead.

    OP question: Believe What Exactly?

    1 Corinthians 15:
    1 Moreover, brethren, "I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you", which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    (NOTE: "I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you")

    2 """By which also ye are saved""", if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    (NOTE: "By which also ye are saved")

    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how "that Christ died for our sins" according to the scriptures;
    (NOTE: "that Christ died for our sins"

    4 And "that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day" according to the scriptures:
    (NOTE: "that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day"

    BELIEVE THIS > Vrs 1-4 Recap: I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, by which also ye are saved is:

    Christ died for your sins (paying sins required wage) was buried (proof he died) & rose (for our justification Rom 4:25) on the 3rd day (Father Gods receipt, sins payment received & accepted).

    Rom 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.

    I was filled with the Spirit from out of the blue one day. Totally unsought and unexpected. And knew it was Jesus. And believed in him ever since. I then heard today's gospel but already had what they were talking about. So over time with many studies, I came to believe Calvinism is true for the most part.

    You really nailed it with these verses. I regret to say that the resurrection is often overlooked
    in evangelical preaching, preparatory to offering Salvation to those who heard. I find this
    (verse 4 quoted), to be essential to the Gospel, as is evidenced with the first disciples.
    Their unbelief in the report of the resurrection was unacceptable.

    1 Corinthians 1:
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us
    who are being saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
    And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
    20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age?
    Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
    21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God
    through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
    22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;
    23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
    24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
    25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    The demons do that. It means to trust in him alone as your savior. If you think you can be lost, you cannot do this.
