The Bible and Salvation

The Bible is the answer
 
The bible is the unfailing word of God. Man wrote the bible but the words written were God breathed and can be used for guiding our lives to know and grow our relationship with our savior Jesus. Jesus was in the beginning and Jesus is the word. If you want to know God then read his love letter to our lives. “The Bible”
(John 1:1; 2Timothy 3:16)
 
What is the way to salvation?
 
The only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ. We must believe that Jesus paid it all and that it is not by our works but by faith in Jesus. It is through the outpouring of God’s love that in obedience we will do the work of God. 
(James 2:22; Galatians 2:16)

The Trinity And The Bible

The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons– the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Stated differently, God is one in essence and three in person. These definitions express three crucial truths: (1) the Father. Son. and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons, (2) each Person is fully God. (3) there is only one God
 
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons. 
 
The Bible speaks of the Father as God (Philippians 1:2), Jesus as God (Titus 2:13), and the Holy Spirit as God (Acts 5:3-4). Are these just three different ways of looking at God, or simply ways of referring to three different roles that God plays? The answer must be no. because the Bible also indicates that theFather, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons. 
 
For example, since the Father sent the Son into the world (John 3:16). he cannot be the same person as the Son. Likewise , after the Son returned to the Father (John 16:10). the Father and the Son sent the Holy Spirit into the world (John 14:26; Acts 2:33). Therefore, the Holy Spirit must be distinct from the Father and the Son
 

The Core of Salvation

The central purpose of God’s revelation in Scripture is to call people into fellowship with Him. Originally created to be in relationship with God. humans defied Him by going their own independent way. resulting in alienation from Him and the innate inability to please God. This fall took place at the beginning of human history; since then all people have suffered the consequences and are in need of the saving grace of God. 
 
The salvation of humanity is completely a work of God’s free grace; it is not in any way the result of human works or goodness. Each person can receive salvation by repentance and faith. God’sWord assures individuals that He will continue His saving work in them forever.
