One of the clearest teachings of the Bible is the teaching that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.
- In John 14:6, Jesus said he is THE ONLY WAY. There, we read, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
- In Acts 4:10-12, The Bible states that salvation is offered through NO OTHER NAME but “by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth…” Verse 12 states, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
- In 1 Corinthians 3:11, the Bible states that Christ is the ONLY FOUNDATION: “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
- In Romans 1:16, the Bible says that the Gospel of Christ is THE POWER unto salvation. There, we read, “ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Importantly, the Bible also says that we cannot be “the way” for ourselves. Our good works are not good enough for God. In Ephesians 2:8-9, the Bible reads, “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.”
