The Bible teaches that we are saved by God’s grace, not through our own efforts or through our ability to do good works (Ephesians 2:8-9
). We are saved completely by what Jesus did for us at the cross.
In order to accept God’s offer of salvation, we believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God (John 8:24
). God convicts us of our sinfulness and leads us to commit our lives to him, which involves our repenting of and turning away from our past lives of sin (Luke 13:3
). We confess our faith in Jesus (Romans 10:9-10
) and accept the free gift of salvation as we are baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of our sins (Acts 2:38
; Romans 6:3-5
As Christians, we try to live for Christ, though we fail Him often. We draw encouragement from our relationship to local Christians in the church, and we worship God regularly. We really are “family” (1 Timothy 3:15
). As we study the Bible, we grow in our knowledge and understanding, and God shapes us into the person He created us to be.
