1Yr_Home_Pastor“Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; prove yourselves.”  II Corinthians 13:5. The Bible makes it clear that we are saved by grace and not by our own efforts.  Even though works have no part in obtaining redemption, they are an evidence that we do indeed possess eternal life and have been genuinely converted. A transformed life gives confirmation of a regenerated heart. Good works will add to the joy and assurance of salvation.
