My Statement of Faith pertaining to Salvation, Proof of Salvation &The Christian Life….

1. Any person who places his/her individual faith in the the Jesus of The Bible (The Eternally Existing Son of God) and His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE (His substitutionary death, burial and ressurection) is IMMEDIATELY, PERMANENTLY and ETERNALLY saved from the penalty and punishment for all their sins past, present & future, sealed by The Holy Spirit until the Day of Redemption (John 3:16, 36, 5:24, 6:47, 1st Corinthians 15-1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9, 4:30), guaranteed never to be plucked from God’s Hand or perish (in hell) and guaranteed never to be separated from the love that is in Christ Jesus. (John 10:27-31, Romans 8:38-39)

2. Salvation is by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. Not by any ammount of works (i.e., water baptism, sin confession, turning from sins, repenting of sins, good deeds, church membership/attendance, sacraments, law/commandment keeping etc…) Salvation is a 100% FREE GIFT! (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 4:5, Titus 3:5-7, Romans 5:15,16,18)

3. Salvation is ETERNAL which means that it can never be anything but lasting FOREVER (i.e., temporary, probationary or conditional) and can, therefore, never be “lost,” “forefeited,” or “relinquished.”) When a person trusts in The Jesus of The Bible and His finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE, God IMMEDIATELY puts His Spirit inside the believer which is the guarantee of the believer’s inheritance (Ephesians 1:13-14). The believer in Jesus Christ receives The Spirit of Christ Who baptizes the believer into The Body of Christ (1st Corinthians 12:13) & regenerates his/her spirit and is spiritually born again of The Spirit…a new creation in Christ Jesus Who is for the believer our LIFE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, WISDOM, REDEMPTION, JUSTIFICATION, SANCTIFICATION and exceedingly GREAT REWARD! (John 14:6, 1st Corinthians 1:30, Romans 4:25, Genesis 15:1)

4. Salvation has always been and will always be by God’s grace through faith. Abraham and David were both justified (saved) by faith alone apart from any works. (Genesis 15:6, Galatians 3:6-9, Romans 4:3-5)

5. After a person is saved, he/she is exhorted/commanded to live the Christian life the exact same way he/she got saved. BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH! The just shall LIVE (The Christian Life) by FAITH! (Not by going back to the works of the law for the perfecting of the flesh.) (Hebrews 10:38, Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11). God’s fellowship, blessings, favor and rewards aren’t things to be earned by placing God in our debt by law/commandment keeping but aspects of the Christian Life all believers can enjoy immediately/daily and will enjoy eternally as we abide in Christ by setting our minds on the things of The Spirit (i.e., who The Bible says we are in Christ, Who He is in us and what our inheritance is with Him forever).

6. The proof that a person is saved is that they have believed The Gospel. Justification is solely on the basis of faith. A person isn’t saved by any ammount of works nor are any ammount of works required to authenticate one’s salvation as is, unfortunately too frequently understood/taught in the modern day religious institutional church system today. Everyone grows at different rates spiritually and some stay more carnal than others. But even the most carnal Christians (like those in the Carnal Corinthian Church in The Bible) are 100% “WASHED,” (from ALL their sins past, present and future by The Blood of Jesus), 100% “JUSTIFIED,” (declared 100% not guilty by God/100% innocent, 100% eternally saved, 100% qualified for our eternal inheritance Jesus will share with us forever!), and 100% “SANCTIFIED” (set apart and made holy by The Blood of Jesus and His imputed righteousness.) (1st Corinthians 6:11)

7. Saved believers (i.e., those who have trusted in the finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE of Jesus Christ ALONE and will spend eternity in the New Heavens and New Earth with God! No more pain, sin, suffering etc…Just pure love, joy, bliss, peace and happiness forever. (Revelation 20 & 21)

8. If a person refuses to receive The Free GIFT of salvation they will have chosen by their own free will to remain in their sins and will die in their sins forever in hell which is ultimately cast into the Lake of Fire which is a place of eternal torment and regret. (Matthew 3:12, 25:41, Daniel 12:2, Mark 9:41-45, Luke 16:23-24, 2nd Thessalonians 1:9, Revlation 14:10-11, 20:10). God doesn’t force or desire anyone to be eternally separated from Him. His desire is that NONE would perish but that ALL would repent (change their mind from unbelief to belief in the finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE of Jesus Christ ALONE) and be saved. (2nd Peter 3:9)

If this is you and you have never received that FREE GIFT of salvation by God’s grace alone through faith alone in the finished redemptive work on The Cross ALONE of Jesus Christ ALONE I pray today would be the Day of Salvation for you!
