5. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead to reconcile us to God. When a person repents, and believes the gospel they are saved, not only from their sin, but because they are given Jesus’ resurrected life they are also saved from themselves. (Romans 5:6-10) At that time, we are declared righteous (in a right relationship with God), and have a new identity. We are no longer sinners but saints. And since Jesus is responsible for our salvation, He is also responsible for our eternal security and we can never be lost again.
