What is salvation?
Salvation is deliverance from sin and eternal death. Salvation is provided for us by God's grace that He gives in Christ Jesus. One receives salvation and eternal life when he is born again.
Why must I be "born again"?
You must be saved (born again) to escape damnation of hell (John 3:5, Matt 22:11-14, 25:41-46, Revelation 20:12-15). When one is saved by faith, the Spirit of Christ baptizes him into the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:13). When he receives the baptism of the Holy Ghost, Jesus Christ Himself is the baptizer.
What must I do to be "born again"?
Confess that you are a sinner and repent (become sorry for your sins) Romans 10:9-11; with sincerity, ask God for His forgiveness (I John 1:9); invite Jesus into your heart and by faith, accept Him as your personal Savior (Revelation 3:20); and make a complete turn in your life by forsaking your sins (John 5:14).
Why do I need the baptism of the Holy Ghost?
The Holy Ghost empowers the believer for service (Luke 24:49, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 1:8, Acts 19:2, Mark 16-17); is a comforter (John 14:16); is a teacher and a reminder (John 14:26); gives one power to resist the devil (James 4:7).
What is prayer?
Prayer is a time of communication and fellowship with our Lord and Savior. We speak to God and He speaks to us.
What is sanctification?
To be sanctified means that one has been washed and been made clean by the blood of Jesus and set apart for the Lord's work.
What does holiness mean?
Holiness means cleanliness, purity, to be separated from ungodliness and dedicated to divine purposes, only possible by surrendering oneself to the Lord.
Is holiness a biblical mandate?
Yes. Every person that expects to inherit eternal life with Jesus must be sanctified and holy regardless of their church affiliation. (Hebrews 12:14)
Can I please God without being holy?
No. "The Lord said to Moses, 'Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: "Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy."'"(Leviticus 19:1-2). "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:1-2).
Can I remain saved and still practice sin or wrong doing?
No, real or genuine saints may make mistakes but they no longer practice sin. (II Cor 5:17, I John 3:9, I John 2:1-2)
