What is Salvation?

Salvation is to be saved from the eternal damnation brought on by sin.

This starts with recognizing you are an unrighteous sinner in God's eyes: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one... for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:10 & 23). This means all are declared unrighteous in God's sight because all have transgressed God's moral law, the ten commandments (cf. 1 John 3:4).

Next you must realize the penalty for sin: "The soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:20); "For the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23a). This means that we deserve the death penalty (eternal damnation) for our sins against a holy God.

Then you must repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ for imputed righteousness: "The Lord... is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9); "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). God is rich in mercy and has made a way for you to be reconciled to him through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Jesus both died for your sins according to the scriptures, was buried in a tomb, and resurrected three days later by the power of God. If you will simply repent and put your trust in Jesus Christ as your Saviour, God will absolve you of all of your sins and grant you eternal life. You have God's word on it.
