Belief and Salvation
We need salvation because we have sinned. Sin separates us from God who desires a relationship with us. It is impossible for any man to restore that broken relationship with God by any amount of personal goodness, religious deeds, or by belonging to a church. We cannot earn or achieve a right relationship with God by our own efforts.
The death of Jesus was not an accident. It was God's plan from the beginning to save us from our sins through the death of Jesus Christ. The Bible calls God's act of love, grace. His grace is His gift to us. The way we receive His gift is by entering into a covenant relationship with Jesus by placing our trust and faith in Him.
When we decide that we will follow Jesus for the rest of our lives, we demonstrate our trust in Jesus by obeying His commands to repent of sin, confess Jesus as the Son of God and to be immersed (baptized) in water demonstrating the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
