that salvation is easily available to all.

continue to live a life pleasing to God.

1. Repentance
2. Justification by faith
3. Reconciliation or atonement
4. Regeneration or new birth
5. Sanctification
in order to be forgiven for sin, a person must
be sorry for what they have done. (Luke
7:35-50, Luke 5: 11-14, Luke 19: 1-10, Acts 2:
Luke 7: 35-50
This is about Mary who was a prostitute who
washed Jesus’ feet with her tears and

Zaccheus was a tax collector and a
thief. He repented and gave to the
people form whom he had stolen, four
times the amount he had taken. Jesus
later went to his house and dined with
him. Jesus said to Zaccheus, “Today,
salvation has come to your house.”
Peter and the rest of the apostles were
preaching to a crowd who wanted to
know what to do in order to be saved.
Peter replied, “repent and be baptized
in order for your sins to be forgiven.”
Justification by Faith
In order to be saved, you must have
faith in Jesus. Having knowledge that if
people are truly sorry and acknowledge
what Jesus did for them by dying on the
cross they will be forgiven.
(Acts 16:30-32, Rom. 3:21-26, Rom. 10:
11-17, James 2: 14-17, Rom. 5:1-21)
If you believe in the lord Jesus, you can
be saved.
Everyone who believes in Him will not be
put to shame. Faith comes by hearing
the word of God and the word is heard
through Christ.
2: 14-17
Faith without works is dead. We are
expected to act upon our faith
combined with work. Having faith alone
is of no use.
Reconciliation or Atonement
This is about renewing a person’s
relationship with God, knowing that
they are loved and forgiven.(Luke
15:11-24, Luke 19: 1-10, Eph. 2:11-12)
After the Prodigal son repented of his
sins and believed he would have been
forgiven, he decided to go back to his
father and ask for forgiveness. When his
father saw him, he welcomed him with
open arms and accepted him back into
the family.
Zacchaeus was forgiven of his sins and
he was reconciled to God.
Gentiles are welcomed in the family of
God through Jesus Christ once they
repent and accept the sacrifice of Jesus
on the cross.
Regeneration or New Birth
Christians believe that to be able to live
life in the way God intends, a person
must start anew. This is sometimes
referred to as being born again.
(Colossians 3:12-17, Ephesians 4:23-24)
Once we are born again we are to act
in virtuous ways, loving each other in the
same way Jesus Christ did. Everything
we do, think and say should now bring
glory and honor to God.
4: 23-24
The transformation from our former sinful
life to a life of holiness is only possible
through Christ. We must live by the spirit
by focusing our minds on the things that
are holy. When this is done, we put off
our old self and are renewed through
This is the daily growing in godliness as a
consequence of striving to live
according to God’s guidelines.
(Ephesians 2: 1-10)
2: 1-10
After the fall of man, man was hopeless
and through sin, death was the
expected penalty. However, God’s
grace and mercy was extended and
provision was made for man to receive
salvation through Christ. Jesus’s blood
cleanses us from our sin and we are
sanctified through grace to do His good
