1. What is Salvation?

Salvation is believing Christ died, was buried and rose again (the Gospel). He paid our sin debt so we would not have to pay it. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16 KJV

2. What is sin?

Sin is when we despise God’s law by acting contrary to what he says. It is rebellion or disobedience.  In other words, we do what we want to do when we want to do it without regard to God’s law. 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4 KJV

3. What is the punishment For Sin?

It is death, not a physical death but a spiritual death. We are separated from God forever. 15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.  

Romans 5:15, 18-19 KJV

4. How do I know I am saved?

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1Timothy 2:5-6; Ephesians 2:8-9; Luke 23:43 and Matthew 9:1-8 KJV

5. Is there more than one way to salvation? There is only one way. 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KVJ

6. Can I loose my salvation? There are many thoughts about this question. Some say yes, while others say no. Please speak with your pastor or deacon.
