Eternal life is God’s free gift to anyone who trusts Christ’s death on the cross as payment for the sins that separate him from God. Jesus Christ died on the cross as the full sin payment for mankind. Salvation occurs when people believe in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
