What is Salvation? Salvation comes from the Greek word soteria, which means "deliverance, preservation and safety." It primarily involves deliverance from bondage of sin (Romans 9:20-23; Galatians 5:1). Salvation also includes deliverance from enemies (Luke 1:71) and sickness and disease (Isaiah 53:4)

Can I earn Salvation? NO.. Salvation is a gift that is made available to those who repent, believe and confess that Jesus is Lord and that He died and rose from the dead to save mankind (Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10).
This gift cannot be earned through good deeds or by simply being a "good person" (Ephesians 2:8; I Timothy1:9). It is a matter of faith (acting out on what you believe according to God's Word concerning salvation). Back to Top
How did sin come about? Because of Adam's sin of disobedience in the Garden of Eden, all of humanity was affected by, and infected with sin (Romans 5:12-14). Mankind took on the nature of sin. Therefore, everyone that was born after Adam was born into a life of sin and death (Psalm 51:5) Back to Top
What does Repent mean? To repent simply means to "change one's mind; to change one's direction; to have a change of heart." It involves making a 180 degree turn away from sin and heading in the right direction toward God. Back to Top
Is Repentance saying" I'm Sorry?" NO... Repentance does not mean "I'm sorry." It is a quality decision to ask forgiveness of your sins, turning away from ungodly living and submitting to God's will for your life (I John 1:9) Back to Top
