It is by believing in Jesus that we are saved.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.(John 3:18)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift
of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
It is by hearing the message of the gospel that we are saved.
"He will declare to you a message by which you will be saved, you and all your household." (Acts 11:14)
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes"
So what should our church focus us on?
O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly
portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by
hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the
flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? Does he who supplies the Spirit
to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?
"Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?"
For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. (2 Peter 1:4)
Precious and magnificent promises.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned. (John 3:18)
