What We believe About Salvation

Millersville Bible Church:

A central theme of Scripture is God’s provision of salvation for sinful human beings. Though originally created in perfect fellowship with God, the first man yielded to the temptation of Satan and disobeyed the command of God, bringing upon himself and all subsequent humanity God’s judgment of both physical and spiritual death. All human beings therefore enter the world under condemnation and with a disposition which rejects God’s authority over their lives, rendering them unable to please God. Because God is holy and just, He must punish all sin. Yet in His love and grace, He chose to allow His Son Jesus Christ to bear the full penalty man’s sin deserved. Whoever repents of sin and places faith in Jesus Christ alone as Savior and Lord receives forgiveness of sin and is declared righteous in God’s sight. The believer in Christ also receives spiritual life, creating in him the desire and ability to please God. Although good works in no way earn salvation, they are the inevitable result of genuine faith. Salvation is based completely on the grace of God, and nothing can change the believer’s status as a fully justified member of God’s family and kingdom.
