Image of tract Grace

The Bible says...

"By Grace Are Ye Saved Through Faith"

Do you believe it? Do you know what it means?

Grace - Getting what we do not deserve.

Saved - Rescued from danger.

Faith - Belief or trust.

It means:
1. People are in danger of hell
2. They don't deserve to be rescued
3. God will save them if they trust in Him

Who is in danger?

"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

Does that mean we deserve hell?

"For the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23).

Liars, for example:

"All liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8).

Would God really do that?

He has to. A judge can't let lawbreakers go without suffering the penalty.

Don't I have to do my part?

The penalty is death. Can you pay part of that? And, honestly, are you doing all that you can do? Obeying every command? If not, you are still in great danger! God has a better plan: His son Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for you:

"God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us [in our place]" (Romans 5:8).

He died, was buried, and then rose again to prove he was the Son of God.

What's left for you to do?


"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).

Nothing except believe, that is:

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31).

What would you think

of a man who, rescued from a burning building, ran back into the flames? Does he really want to be saved? If you want God to save you from your sin, you have to be willing to leave it and not go back. This is called repentance.

"[The Lord is] not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).

People who say they believe God but live persistently wicked lives are not saved.

"I will show thee my faith by my works" (James 2:18).

Can you honestly pray and tell God this: "God, I am a sinner. I deserve hell. I cannot do anything to help save myself. I believe that Jesus died in my place. I turn from sin and accept Him as my savior. Please save me now."

What will happen if you pray that prayer and mean it?

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).

If you want to know more, or if that prayer expresses the desire of your heart, please write to the address below. We will help you find a church that teaches what those Bible verses say. Find those parts in the Bible and read for yourself. You too can know right now that you are saved!

"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the son of God" (I John 5:13).

The Bible is the best-selling book of all time. Many competing religions claim to believe it. Who is right? What does the Bible really say? You owe it to yourself to learn about this book. Your eternal destiny depends on it.


The Bible was written between 2000 and 4000 years ago. Many different human authors were involved, but the Bible's claim is that God inspired all of them to write what he wanted written:

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." (2 Timothy 3:16).

"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (2 Peter 1:21).


The Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek. If you want to learn exactly what the authors said, you need to learn those two languages. Serious Bible scholars do.


Fortunately for the rest of us, the Bible has been translated into every major language in the world. Many English translations exist. Some are very good, following as closely as possible the original languages. Others are not so good, adding the translator's interpretations and ideas.

On of the best known is the King James Version. It is a careful and accurate translation from the original Greek and Hebrew.

We do not have the original manuscripts for any of the Bible. However, we do have thousands of copies of Greek and Hebrew manuscripts from centuries ago, giving us high confidence that we have accurate copies of what the original authors wrote.


The Bible itself encourages you to read for yourself. It claims that you can understand its important teachings all by yourself. Of course, a good Bible teacher can help, but it is your responsibility to see for yourself if what you are being taught is so.

Jesus once told some very religious people who claimed to believe the Bible:

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5:29).

These religious people were wrong about how to have eternal life! Are you? You ought to search the Bible. See for yourself whether the things you have been told are true. Is it really proper to do that? The Bible says it is:

"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (Acts 17:11).

A lack of Bible knowledge can lead us into error:

"Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God" (Matthew 22:29).


1. Read and study the Bible for yourself.
2. Find a minister that gives Bible answers to difficult questions.
3. Find a minister that encourages you to read the Bible for yourself and check out the things he says.
4. Find a church that devotes a large portion of its time to teaching and explaining the Bible.
