Salvation is a gift, pure and simple. God gives us Salvation on the basis of what Jesus Christ has done for us and welcomes us into the Kingdom. How do we receive this gift? We receive it by believing that what God's Word (The Holy Bible) says is true.
What has Jesus done that God should do this for us? 1. Jesus came to earth and lived a life of perfect obedience before God. 2. Jesus died on the cross for us, bearing in His own body the just punishment of God for our sins. God's justice was satisfied with Jesus' sacrifice. Those who believe (have Faith) will be saved.
S - SALVATION means to be rescued from sin and its punishment and set free to know, love and serve God.
