Bible Basics - Scriptures about Salvation

1. All men are sinners:

2. Salvation by grace (undeserved mercy), not works:

3. Salvation only through Jesus:

4. Believe on Jesus:

5. Receive Jesus:

6. Eternal salvation:

A. You can never lose it, even if you make mistakes and fall:

B. But the Lord will chasten you for wrongdoing:

Webmaster's comment: The Gospel of Christ does NOT give us license to willfully sin! We are not under the law of Moses any longer, but receiving Jesus Christ as our LORD means we are supposed to obey Him! And that includes all the admonitions of the Apostle Paul such as,
Ephesians 5:18  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
Romans 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
2 Timothy 2:19  ¶Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

7. Receiving Jesus guarantees eternal life in Heaven:

8. The results of being born again:

A. Spiritual rebirth makes you a new creature:

B. You will desire to work for Jesus:

9. Sin brings about spiritual death; but Jesus died in our place, taking our punishment:

10. In the Mosaic law, blood is payment for sin; Jesus' death paid that price in full:

11. All men are not saved sons of God in their natural state:

12. The self-righteous refuse Jesus' salvation:

(See Mat.5:20; 9:10-13; 21:31b; Lk.18:9-14; Jn.5:39-44; Rom.10:3; 1Jn.1:9,10.)

13. New Testament examples of salvation:

Hey thanks so much for posting this. It's really helping me as I put together a Gospel presentation for a band gig. I would definitely read more. Many thanks! Jordan
I just wanted to let you know that Salvation page is great. As I and my friends minister the Gospel to kids in L.A. area prisons, this page will help us in the message flow. We only have 15 minutes in most cases and the desire is to deliver the scriptures that cut right to the point. This allows us to build a foundation that we and others will use in discipleship of these kids. God's blessings to you all and thanks! Phil
Thank you for the scriptures, I am working with a young man who has recently lost his dad. He wants to know more about God and salvation. I am praying, and hope to reach him with the gospel. He has a young live-in girlfriend, and they have two children together. They were both baptized catholic at an early age, but neither have ever went to church anywhere. I believe they are searching, but it's hard to work through the religious aspect without exposing the truth to them and not offend them at the same time. Pray for them his name is JR and her name us Danielle
