Salvation is a free gift offered by God to man wholly based on the mercy and grace of God. We receive that grace through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. No work is required on our part, our part is only faith
(Ephesians 2:8&9). All the work was done by the substitutionary work of Jesus on the cross, one time for all of humanity throughout all time.

•  We must believe Jesus is God and the only way to get to Heaven is through Him (John 14:6). We must believe we are sinners (Romans 3:23). We must believe there is an eternal punishment for sin which is Hell (Romans 6:23). We must believe that Jesus paid the penalty for our sin when He was crucified, bled, died on the cross and then rose again.

•  If we believe, then we may call upon the name of the Lord and we shall be saved (Romans 10:13). Jesus called this being “born again” (John 3:3).
•  There is a time when you get saved. Just like being born physically, it is a single event. There is a time and a place when salvation happens. Salvation is not a process, it is an event. Salvation is a door, not a tunnel. It is an event, not a process.

•  Jesus is the ONLY way to get to Heaven (John 14:6).

•  Repentance: Concerning salvation, repentance happens at the time of salvation. Repentance is a change in belief. Prior to salvation we all put our faith in something that will not get us to heaven, for instance, good
works, financial giving, or church membership. We changed our belief to trusting in only Jesus to get us to Heaven. Concerning Jesus as the way to get to Heaven, we changed from unbelief in Jesus to belief in Jesus.

•  We believe in both the response of man, and the sovereignty of God, that when man chooses to accept salvation, he is kept by the power of God unto the day of redemption (eternal security).

•  Nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth except his own voluntary refusal to believe on the Lord Jesus the Christ. (I Timothy 1:15; John 3:18,36).
