And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Acts 2:21).

Salvation Scriptures

  • For God So loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have ever lasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16, 17)

  • If you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Rom. 10:9, 10, 13)

  • If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1John 1:9)

  • Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Acts 2:21)

  • For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Eph. 2:8,9)

  • Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. (John 6:47)

  • Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

  • For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. (Romans 3:23 & I Tim. 1:15)

  • But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. (John 1:12)

  • I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Repent ye therefore, and be converted (saved), that your sins may be blotted out. (Matt. 4:17, Mark 2:17, Luke 5:32 Acts 2:38)

  • Joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just person, which need no repentance. (Luke 15:7).

Salvation

Salvation is a gift of God's grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9). Christ's death fully accomplished justification through faith and redemption from sin. Christ died in our place (Romans 5:8-9) and bore our sins in His own body (1 Peter 2:24). On the third day after His death, Jesus physically rose again, demonstrating His victory over sin and death (Romans 14:9).

I believe salvation is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Good works and obedience are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation. Due to the greatness, sufficiency, and perfection of Christ's sacrifice, all those who have truly received Christ as Savior are eternally secure in salvation, kept by God's power, secured and sealed in Christ forever (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1,38-39; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Peter 1:5; Jude 24). Just as salvation cannot be earned by good works, neither does it need good works to be maintained or sustained. Good works and changed lives are the inevitable results of salvation (James 2).
