Christian Salvation:

Sin Separates Us From God

Romans 3:23, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Christ paid the price for sin

Jesus Paid The Price Of Sin

Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Faith Not Works Is The Way To Salvation

Ephesians 2:8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Christian Community-The Church:

Acts 2:41Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer … 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
