  1. God
      Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. (Romans 8:33)

  2. Jesus
      "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

  3. Holy Spirit
      And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)

  4. Faith
      But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

  5. The Word
      Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. (James 1:21)

  6. Preaching
      For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. (1 Corinthians 1:21)

  7. Hearing
      So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

  8. Repentance
      For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. (2 Corinthians 7:10)

  9. Confession
      For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10)

  10. Baptism
      There is also an antitype which now saves us; baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3:21)

  11. Grace
      For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

  12. Mercy
      Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5)

  13. Love
      "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

  14. Jesus' Blood
      Who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people's, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. (Hebrews 7:27)

  15. Jesus' Life
      For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (Romans 5:10)

  16. Jesus' Death
      Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. (Romans 5:9)

  17. Gospel
      For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. (Romans 1:16)

  18. Doing the will of the Lord
      "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." (Matthew 7:21)

  19. Being Righteous
      "For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:20)

  20. Enduring to the end
      "And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved." (Matthew 10:22)

  21. Calling on the name of the Lord
      And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. (Acts 2:21)

  22. Doctrine
      Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you. (1 Timothy 4:16)

  23. Turning a sinner from the error of his way
      Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:20)

  24. The name of Jesus
      "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

  25. Childbearing
      Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control. (1 Timothy 2:15)
