Mankind, Salvation, and Eternal Life

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world, separating man from God. The Word of God declares Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to destroy the works of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (atonement). Salvation (New Birth, Being Born Again) is the gift of God to man, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by the grace of God through a repentant heart confessing faith in Jesus Christ as Lord (justification). Salvation is available as an act of free will in response to God, allowing a person to pass from spiritual death into spiritual/eternal life. This enables fellowship with God and should produce “good works” acceptable to God (Rom. 3:23, 5:14; 1 John 3:3-8; Eph. 2:8; 2 Cor. 5:21, 7:10; Gal. 3:13; Rom. 4:4-5; John 1:12, 5:24; 1 John 5:12).
