Why do I need Salvation?

Every person inherits a broken relationship with God because of sin. God cannot accept or tolerate sin. Instead, mankind has hope in Jesus Christ. Accepting His death and resurrection is the only way to receive forgiveness and restore our broken relationship with God (Romans 6:23; Romans 5:8; Luke 19:10; John 3:16; 1 John 2:2).

I‘m not a bad person. isn’t that good enough?

Regardless of our best attempts, no one is able to live a life without blame before God nor achieve His forgiveness by our
own works. Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, not in our religious acts nor our best efforts
(Romans 3:10; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

I was baptized earlier in life. does that count?

Baptism symbolizes Jesus’ death and resurrection and serves as a public testimony of what Jesus has done in a person’s life. Baptism does not forgive our sins or impart any measure of grace; instead, it serves as a picture of an internal decision to follow Jesus (Romans 3:10; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

Why only Jesus?
What about other religions?

Jesus said that He is the Son of God and the only way to God (John 5:25; John 14:6).
Jesus’ historically documented resurrection from the dead changed history and validates that Jesus is Who He said He is.

Can I lose my salvation?

No. Our salvation is not through our own actions, neither can our forgiveness be revoked by our actions. God’s grace is not an excuse for us to live however we choose. Instead, in light of the grace we have been given, we should resist sin through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit given to every believer (John 10:28-30; Ephesians 1:13-14; Romans 6:1-4; Titus 3:3-7; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
