“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) — “Everything that we know about has a beginning except for God Himself. If we accept this fact, then a good question to ask ourselves is what is the beginning of a Christian? No man can rightly say, ‘I’ve always been one.’ Therefore, when and more importantly how does a man become a Christian? Does a man become a Christian by being born into a Christian family, by being baptized or confirmed into the membership of a Christian church, or by keeping the Golden Rule or the Ten Commandments? The straightforward answer to all of these is no.  The authoritative teaching of the Scriptures is that a man is saved by God’s grace through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who by Himself has done all that is necessary for our sins to be forgiven and for us to be reconciled to God.” (Evangelist Gordon Phillips)
