1 Salvation is BELIEVING in Jesus Christ
Salvation is trusting or believing in, by faith, that Jesus Christ paid for your sins with His blood on the cross of Calvary. "He that BELIEVETH on the Son hath everlasting life:. . ." John 3:36 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
2 We are NOT saved by WORKS
The Bible makes it clear that OUR WORKS has nothing whatsoever to do with our salvation. We don't receive it by our works; and we don't keep it by our works! " NOT BY WORKS of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,. . ." Titus 3:5 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9
3 Salvation is a FREE GIFT
Salvation is the free gift of God. If we had to work to keep it &mash; it would not be a free gift &; and God would be a liar! ". . . the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 ". . .by the righteousness of one THE FREE GIFT came upon all men unto justification of life." Romans 5:18
4 Salvation is a NEW BIRTH.
Salvation is not enduring or a process, but an event in time. Salvation is a NEW BIRTH. Just as your first birth happened on a certain time and day, so does the second birth. "(For he saith, I have heard thee in a TIME accepted, and in THE DAY OF SALVATION have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted TIME; behold, now is THE DAY OF SALVATION.)" 2 Corinthians 6:2 "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 3:3 "Being BORN AGAIN, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of

Our fellowship may be broken." Romans 8:15 Nothing can SEPARATE us from our Father Just as nothing can "negate" your physical birth. whereby we cry. My children will always be my children. SOMETHING WE ALREADY HAVE! If we had to work or endure to keep our salvation. nor forsake thee. nor angels. . but our relationship can never be broken. I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE." Matthew 28:20 We already HAVE eternal life When the Bible speaks of possessing eternal life." 1 John 3:2 "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear." John 3:36 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God. have. I am with you ALWAY. which gave them me. nor life. nothing can "negate" your spiritual birth.

. but for to steal. Hebrews 10:26 to the church age of grace.. "Not every one that saith unto me. "(John 10:10) The thief cometh not. They have NEVER been saved. God's Purpose We receive eternal life as a free gift. for the purpose that we might have eternal life." (1John 5:13 (KJV)) Now I know for certain that I have eternal life and will go to heaven when I die. when they doctrinally apply to the tribulation or the millenium. (KJV) God loves us and has a purpose for our lives. John 14:3 > And if I go and prepare a place for you." (KJV) We will spend eternity with Jesus in heaven. but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.. They misapply scriptures such as Matthew 24:13. there ye may be also.

"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God. "Why should I let you into my heaven?" What do you think you would say? John 3:16 > For God so loved the world. (KJV) We can live a full and meaningful life right now. that ye may know that ye have eternal life. (KJV) As i searched.

God is holy and just and must punish sin. and the Word was with God. (KJV) Does all of this make sense to you and you want to accept Jesus Christ into your life? All you have to do is to repent of your sins. (KJV) As Rom 6:23 said. and throughout all the coasts of Judaea. If you sincerely prayed this prayer. and come short of the glory of God.) full of grace and truth. Acts 3:19 > Repent ye therefore. and then to the Gentiles." (KJV) Jesus is God and became man. being put to death in the flesh. (KJV) The only way Jesus can affect our lives is for us to recieve him. Ephesians 2:8 > For by grace are ye saved through faith. Amen. Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus' name. died for us on a cross and was resurrected from the dead so that we may live. yet He loves us and has provided forgiveness for our sin. and the life: no man cometh unto the Father. and at Jerusalem. the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. the glory as of the only begotten of the Father. and be converted.

I am willing to turn from my sins and receive Jesus as my Savior and Lord. but quickened by the Spirit: (KJV) Romans 4:25 > Who was delivered for our offences. our Lord. place your faith into Jesus and to surrender to Jesus as Lord. (and we beheld his glory. and dwelt among us. that they should repent and turn to God. that he might bring us to God. You can be sure you are saved and have eternal life. (KJV) John 1:14 > And the Word was made flesh. to them gave he power to become the sons of God. the just for the unjust. thou shalt be saved. .
