We were separated from God by sin and disobedience. As it is written:

There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands,
no one who seeks God. – Romans 3:10-11

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23

God Sent His Son to restore us back to God

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

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. – 2 Corinthians 5:2

God’s Free Gift of Salvation

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

What must we do?

Repent and believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

“The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, “that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. – Romans 10:8 -10

How can I know that I am saved?

Salvation is the result of faith in God’s word not feelings. God’s wants you to know that you are saved

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1John 5:13
