About Salvation

      The Bible teaches that salvation is found in the Scriptures alone, by grace alone, through faith alone and in Christ alone.

John 3:3-18; John 8:23-24; John 14:6; Acts 4:10-12; Romans 1:16-17; Romans 3:19-26; Romans 4:2-8; Romans 10:2-4,9-10; Galatians 2:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Philippians 3:9; Titus 3:5; 1 John 2:23

 

      The Bible teaches the unconditional election by God of those who would receive His eternal gift of salvation. Man does not choose God rather God chooses man for salvation.

John 6:37,44; Acts 13:48; Romans 8:28-30; Romans 9:10-11,15-16; Ephesians 1:4-5; 2 Timothy 1:9; 1 Peter 1:1-2

 

The Bible teaches the responsibility on all mankind to turn from their wicked ways toward God in order to receive the forgiveness for their sins and to escape from the fury of His wrath.

Matthew 4:17; Luke 13:3; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17:30; 26:20;  Romans 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9

 

      The Bible teaches what is called as “Definite Atonement”. In His work of atonement, Christ overcomes the bondage of our will to sin, gives us the gift of faith, puts in a new heart, grants repentance, and causes us to walk in His ways. This is, therefore, a definite, decisive, particular achievement of the cross for the people of God, the elect, the bride of Christ. The Scripture clearly teaches that everyone will not eventually be saved.

John 6:39; John 17:6-8; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 2:14

 

      As soon as a person puts his/her faith in Christ, he/she receives the Holy Spirit as a seal of promise and is baptized into the body of Christ.

Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 John 4:13

 

      The Bible teaches that true believers will persevere in their faith till the end. If someone claims to be a believer and falls away, it proves that he was never saved. His claims were a mere confession – he was just a professing believer and not a possessing believer. A genuine believer will never fall away completely because of the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints which is the work of God in his life.

John 3:16; 5:24; 10:27-29; Romans 8:28-39; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30; Philippians 1:6; Hebrews 10:26-31; 12:15-17; 1 Peter 1:4-5; 1 John 1:5-7

 

      The Bible teaches that real faith in Christ involves a total commitment to Him, a renouncing of your former faith or religion and embracing a life that is obedient to His word.

Matthew 7:21-23; Romans 8:5-8; 11:19-22; Hebrews 10:26-31; 12:15-17; James 2:14-26; 1 John 1:5-7; 2:3-6
