salvation

Salvation is God's free gift to us which we receive by trusting in Jesus Christ for forgiveness. We are born again by faith alone, not by any good works that we do.

Ephesians 2:8-9Galatians 3:26

Eternity exists for all people who will either live forever in God's presence in heaven or forever  be separated from Him in hell.
