The Bible teaches that salvation, being born again, is necessary for a person to see the Kingdom of God, receive eternal life, forgiveness of sins, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and to become a child of God and joint heir with Christ. It is also clear that it is to be received by faith in the death and resurrection of Christ for the atonement for the individual's sins, including a turning from sin and the self-centered life(repentance)and turning over of the ordering of life completely to Jesus.(Lordship of Christ). Salvation is also totally by God's grace: He elects, predestines, calls, justifies, sanctifies, and glorfies every true believer(Rom.8:29-30; eph. 2:8-9).
