Have you ever wondered or been asked, “How do you know you are saved?” Depending on the religion, salvation has various requirements. Many today are amazed that you can really be sure of your salvation. You don’t have to rely on “hoping you are” but you can “know you are.” It’s so much more than just saying a prayer or walking an aisle. We must understand salvation is about our repentance and trust in Jesus Christ and what He did through His death and resurrection. Join us as we discover the life change that salvation brings as we dig deeper into understanding belief.
