Where does the Bible say this is needed for salvation?

What does this mean?

In order to be saved, you must hear the words of and about Jesus Christ as recorded in the New Testament. This can be achieved in a variety of ways. You can read His words for yourself (reading is equal to hearing in this case) in the New Testament books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. You need only read one in order to learn about Jesus and what He says to those who would follow him. Luke and Mark are good choices for many people unfamiliar with this material.

Alternatively, you could simply listen to someone tell you of the teachings of Jesus. This is often called preaching, teaching, or evangelizing. While this is enough to start you down the road to salvation, you will want to read the Bible yourself to be sure you can trust what you may hear someone teaching you. Many people teach incorrect things in the name of Jesus either out of ignorance or for personal motives. You may also obtain audio recordings of someone reading these Bible passages for you to listen to.

To consider this "step" completed, you should have a pretty good idea of who Jesus is, what he expects from you, and why that should matter.
