Salvation

From our understanding of the New Testament, there are some important elements associated with salvation. Every element is rooted in scripture. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith as none of us deserve to receive the gift of eternal life.

We must have faith first and foremost in Christ Jesus our Lord (Ephesians 2:8). We believe that faith is not just believing however, but it is also the action of obedience to God (John 3:36, 14:15; James 2:17).

It is also necessary for us to repent, or change our way of living that is against Jesus (Acts 2:37-38, 2 Corinthians 7:8-11).

Being willing to confess that Jesus is Lord is also a part of being saved (Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-10).

God, through the New Testament, also directs us to be immersed, or baptized, into Christ (Mat. 28:18- 20). Scripture teaches that baptism washes away sin (Acts 22:16) and places us in Christ (Romans 6:3 4; Gal 3:27). It is also the means by which we are given the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).

The Lord also desires that we continue to be faithful until death (Luke 14:27-33; Revelation 2:10). Just following the above steps certainly does not mean the Christian conversion is complete. Instead, it is where our wonderful life in Jesus begins.
