Saved by Grace only! Saved by Faith only! Saved by Works! You have probably heard at least one of these phrases regarding salvation. One has to wonder why there is so much written in The Scriptures about Grace, Faith and Works if only one is needed and necessary. By adding the word "only" after Grace, one adds to the word of God. By adding the word "only" after Faith, again one adds to the word of God. Also, by trying to work for your salvation, one then proclaims that "good works" are enough to enter into the kingdom of God without Grace and Faith.
Over the centuries, man has devised some very elaborate and detailed explanations concerning Grace only, Faith only and Salvation by Works. Consider: if I am saved by Grace Only, then there is no need to have Faith. If I am saved by Faith only, then there is no reason for the Grace of God for my faith then is sufficient for salvation. If my good works save, then God's Grace is unnecessary, I do not need to have Faith and therefore all I need to be is just a good person doing good works.
In this series of lectures, our speakers will show that God desires us to be "saved by Grace through Faith," motivating us to work that which is good is in God's sight.
We welcome all to come and hear about:
The Grace of God
The Faith we are to have
The Works that we should walk in
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:8-10
