Hebrews 6:1 - Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2  of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3  And this we will do if God permits.

Foundations of the Christian Faith

by Bill Yeary - IIFBC

The words “saved” and “born again” are Christian terms used to describe what happens to a person when they first believe in their heart the gospel message and as a result of believing, personally asks Jesus to come into their life and take over as Lord. Forgiveness is free to everyone, no matter their estate, because of the grace of God. Being a church member, being baptized as an infant or living a good life does not qualify anyone for heaven. You must be born again!
