Steps To Salvation: Faithful Living - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
  When one studies the gospel plan of salvation, the study will often end at baptism. However, baptism will get one into Christ; faithful living will keep him or her there. Galatians 5:4 is a good text to illustrate the point: “You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.” Among other things, this passages shows that it is possible to f...  Read More

Steps To Salvation: Baptism - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
 When one is seeking Biblical salvation, first he or she must hear the word of God (Romans 10:17). Then, the person must believe what they have hard (Hebrews 11:6, Mark 16:15-16). Next he or she must repent of their sins (Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 2:38). Then, the person must confess Christ (Romans 10:9). One must be baptized for the remission of sins (Galatians 3:27, Acts 2:38).

Steps To Salvation: Confession - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
According to Romans 10:17, belief comes only when one first hears the gospel. Based upon that belief, one will then repent of any sin he or she has committed. The next step in the gospel plan of salvation is to confess Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of all. One must first understand the nature of Christ, follow the biblical examples set forth concerning confession, and understand why confessio...  Read More

Steps To Salvation: Repent - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
  The writer of the book of Hebrews chastised the first readers in their spiritual growth. He said, “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food bel...  Read More

Steps To Salvation: Believe - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
 The thrust or goal of the Bible is the salvation of mankind. Paul said, “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1Thessalonians 5:9). Thus, a good study for the Christian and non-Christian alike is the salvation of mankind. It is good for the Christian to be reminded of the biblical truths (2Peter 1:12). It is good for the non-Christian to know...  Read More

Steps To Salvation:Hear - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
One of the first principles of the Bible is the concept of what man must do to be saved. Members of the church have long been criticized for believing the six steps of salvation. While criticism may come, it does not change the reality that these steps are founded in scripture. The first of the steps of salvation is to hear the word of God. This command of the New Testament has been rejected by me...  Read More

The "L" Word - J.Northrop
by Russ Earl on January 29th, 2019
      One of the great lessons of the New Testament is Christianity is a taught religion. People were converted in the book of Acts because children of God went and taught them what they needed to do in order to be saved. Philip had to go and teach the eunuch in Acts 8:26-40. Saul had to be taught by Ananias what he needed to do in the next chapter. Never do we find someone being converted to the ...  Read More
