 01G.   Faith And The Gospel Of Christ Are Essential For Salvation


Understanding the true Gospel of Christ and acquiring perfect faith in God are essential for the salvation of man's soul.

01G.1   How can anyone come to the know the truth about the Gospel of Christ and gain access to grace of God?

In Hebrews 11:6, this is written:

Now it is impossible to please God without faith, since anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him. (NJB)

Faith is the key to the truth. It is through faith that an earnest truth-seeker can gain access to the grace that God may grant Him, for God rewards those who seek him. Try as he may come to God without faith, he will completely fail.

01G.2   How does Faith and the Gospel come together to effect salvation?

In the following verses, these are written: 

Fool! When will you ever learn that ``believing'' is useless without doing what God wants you to? Faith that does not result in good deeds is not real faith. (James 2:20, LVB)

Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? (James 2:22, NKJV)

The Good News reveals the way that God makes people right. It begins and ends by faith. This is written: ``The person who is right with God by faith will live (Romans 1:17, IEB)

Faith becomes perfect for salvation when a person come to believe in the Gospel of Christ and have done the things God wants him to do, that is by following the will of God as revealed in Gospel. For the Gospel (Good News) shows the way how God makes people right with Himself.

01G.3   What is the promise of God to those who have acquired the perfect faith in Him and Christ, for those who have done His will and endured the trials to the end?

. . . . . . . But he who endures to the end will be saved. (Matthew 10:22, RSV)

Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12, RSV)

They will be given the "Crown of Life" — the eternal life in the Holy City, the heavenly home of God's people.


It is therefore essential that a person must acquire a perfect faith in God and Christ. He must also fully understand and believe in the Gospel of Christ. As a result he will have the strength to faithfully follow the will of God and do whatever is required of him to be done. Thus, he can be assured of salvation from the wrath of God on the Day of Judgment, and be given the crown of life—the eternal life in the heaven.
