¶610 THE WAY OF SALVATION
This section, on the way of salvation, describes the Free Methodist standard of teaching on the biblical doctrine of salvation. These paragraphs are an elaboration of what is affirmed in the Articles of Religion, in their statements on Humankind (¶111-113) and Salvation (¶114-120). They represent our understanding of the clear teaching of scripture on the process by which God, through the activity of his Spirit, makes it possible for sinful humans to enter the Christian journey and to grow into Christ-like maturity. The way of salvation is the path God has laid out for us to begin the Christian journey, and to grow in faith.
The way of salvation includes God’s gracious initiative for salvation, awakening to God, repentance, trust, assurance, consecration, and sanctification.
