    We believe that Christ died to save all mankind, so that all who believe in Him could be saved, but that only those who believe will be saved.

    A person has to believe to receive the gift of salvation. If that person, who has the choices of [believe] and [don't believe], and chooses the latter, then that person will not be saved. If the person chooses the former, then that person will be saved. God saves those who believe. He does not save those who don't believe.

    The Holy Spirit calls all to come to Christ and be saved. But many harden their hearts and the Holy Spirit gives up on them.


    • Paul wrote, "The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation" Romans 1:16. He didn't say that predestination or rehabilitation of man's fallen nature was the power of God unto salvation. What is the power of God unto salvation? The power of God is what Jesus did to reconcile us and the world unto God, 2 Corinthians 5:18, 19. And what did Jesus do to accomplish that? Listen carefully because you may never hear this again. In our name and on our behalf Jesus offered to God the Father a life of perfect obedience according to God's Holy Law. It was his life that was lived for our justification, Romans 3:26. That was not enough, something had to be done about our sins and the sins of the whole world. Jesus in our name and on our behalf atoned for our sins and the sins of the whole world, 1 John 2:2. Because of the doing and the dying of Jesus we have been made perfect and complete in him, Colossians 2:10. God now sees all that believe in Jesus as perfect and complete in his Son Jesus Christ. No predestination, rehabilitation or religion needed.
