We Must Repent and Believe in Order To Be Saved
Case 9: God's Gift - Salvation
What must you do to be saved?
To be saved, I must (by grace, through faith) repent from my sins and believe that only Christ can make me holy and whole. Mark 1:15b – "The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
This Truth Makes
When Christians use the term “conversion,” they are describing repentance of sin and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation.
We could look at it this way: Repentance + Faith in Christ = Conversion.
God wants you to be converted. In order to receive salvation, you must be converted. This means you must repent (change your attitude and turn from sin) and have faith (believe) in Christ. Matthew 18:3 – And [Jesus] said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.”
