Predestination and Election
God knew, loved and chose you before the foundation of the world to be conformed to the image of Christ and receive all spiritual blessings in Christ.
Calling and Regeneration
In time, God effectively called you to Himself and made you spiritually alive through the new birth.
Faith and Repentance
Having been made spiritually alive, God gave you faith- trust in the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ- and changed your mind about sin.
Through faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has declared you righteous- as holy as Christ Himself- forever and ever.
God placed you into His family giving you all the rights and privileges of a child of God, and made you a co-heir with His Son, Jesus Christ.
God has separated you from judgment for Himself and is working now to separate you from the power of sin in the sure hope of total deliverance from sin.
God holds you eternally secure in His hand even as He calls you to continue in your faith upheld by His mighty power.
God will complete the work of redemption in you by perfecting you in both soul and body.
