Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
(Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel through repentance (death to sin), water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues (resurrection).
(I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Acts 10:43-48; Acts 19:1-6; Romans 6:3-4)
