People are Saved by Believing in Jesus.
All mankind’s sins have been paid for by Jesus when He died on the cross as us and in our place.
As a result, reconciliation with God—from God’s side of the question and according to God’s own accounting—has already been accomplished by the death of His anointed Christ on the cross. The only actual barrier preventing anyone from being reunited with God is personal unbelief. Those individuals who confess Jesus as their Lord, and believe that God raised Him from the dead are saved by God’s grace (the good, benevolent purpose of Father’s heart toward us now released within the covenant written in Jesus’ blood). These believers begin to personally experience reconciliation: the life, joy, power, and glory of being reunited with God. This is the experience Jesus spoke of when He encouraged Nicodemus, “You must be born again.” Anyone, regardless of the sins of their past, can be restored to the real experience of joy, peace, and freedom that comes from true fellowship with God through repenting (forsaking their life of independence from God), confessing and receiving Jesus as Lord, and believing that He is risen and lives in them today by the grace, love, and power of God. The Holy Spirit makes this possible as He leads and empowers the church to proclaim the good new of the Gospel of Jesus, and as He convicts us of the reality of Jesus and His resurrection from the dead. When we believe the Good News and receive Jesus as the risen Lord, the Holy Spirit regenerates (breaths creative life into) our dead spirits, justifies us on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus, and adopts us and bears witness with our spirits that we are long sought and much loved sons and daughters rightfully welcome into the family and Kingdom of God.
