Way of Salvation

Christian Fellowship Church exists to share the message of eternal salvation found only through faith in Jesus Christ, confession of that faith, and repentance from sin.

To that end, this page contains Bible verses and basic statements of truth related to individual salvation. We at Christian Fellowship are going to heaven and we want you to join us there! Read over these steps leading to salvation in Christ.

  • We have all sinned.
  • God loves us and Christ died to take away our sins.
  • The free gift of God is eternal life when we trust in Christ, repent of our sinful life and surrender our life to the Will of God.
  • We can do nothing to earn or merit salvation. It is a free gift from God that belongs to you when you place your total faith and trust in death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to remove your sin and make you acceptable to God.
  • We must confess faith in Christ and agree to open our heart to Christ. We must trust Christ with our whole life.
  • Being a Christian means that we allow the Holy Spirit to remake us so we become holy as God is holy in the way that we live our lives.
  • Once you have accepted Christ by faith into your life, you now have eternal life, even while you live. Eternal life, once received by faith, is permanent and cannot be lost.
