The Meaning of Salvation—Salvation is the gracious work of God whereby He delivers undeserving sinners from sin and its results (Matt. 1:21; Eph. 2:8, 9). In justification, He declares righteous all who put faith in Christ as Savior (Rom. 3:20-22), giving them freedom from condemnation, peace with God, and full assurance of future glorification (Rom. 3:24-26).
What must I do to be saved?
Pray the following in earnest:
"I confess to God that I am a sinner, and believing that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and was raised for my justification, I do now receive and confess Him as my personal Savior."
Assurance as a believer
Romans 10:9 (NKJ): That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
John 5:24 (NKJ): I say to you, “He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”
1 John 5:13 (NKJ): These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
John 20:31 (NKJ): But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
