Sola Gratia

SOLA GRATIA - “Grace Alone”

It answers the question of who does what in salvation. Many think that salvation is a “grace and…” project. If this is true, then “grace is no longer grace”

(Romans 11:6) And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.

The Bible is clear, salvation is by grace and grace alone because “salvation comes from the Lord” (Jonah 2:9). (2 Timothy 1:9) He who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time
