FAITH ALONE FOR SALVATION

Acts 16:30-31 and after he brought them out, he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.”
John 3:15-18 that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life. 16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. 18 “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, that no one should boast.
Titus 3:5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
John 5:24 24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
John 6:47 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
John 3:36   “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
John 6:47  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life.
John 6:40    “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”
John 11:25-26   Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,
26  and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
John 12:46  “I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
Galatians 2:16    nevertheless knowing that man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified.
Galatians 3:26  For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.
Romans 4:2-6   For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”  4  Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. 5  But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness, 6  just as David also speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
1 John 5:13     These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Romans 3:20   because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
