A Collection Of Inspiring Quotes About Salvation

Here are some of my favorite life-changing preacher quotes:

"Any teaching that demands a change of conduct toward either God or man for salvation is to add works or human effort to faith, and this contradicts all Scripture and is an accursed message (Gal. 1:8-9; Deut. 27:18). Study the book of Galatians." —'REPENTANCE,' Pastor A. Ray Stanford (1916-2012), Chapter 6, 'HANDBOOK OF PERSONAL EVANGELISM'

“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)

“That payment that Christ made, He put it to your account... Do you realize the opportunity that God has given to us, to be able to 'GO INTO ALL THE WORLD.' And the thing that bothers people, is this thing about sin, because of the guilt that it brings, and all the wickedness that it brings; and you and I are the ONLY hope the people in this world—God has left us here and we are their only hope, if we don't explain the Gospel and make it clear!” —Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold; a quote from his sermon, “A Study of Romans Chapter 10

“There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness.” —Pastor M.R. DeHaan, 'Hebrews'; Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117)

“Religion starts on the outside, and never gets to the inside; God starts on the inside, and works toward the outside. Grace is an inside worker, because sin is an inside problem.” —Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) an awesome quote from the presentation titled, “Hero Of The Faith: Lester Roloff

“There is power in this Gospel message. Most people just don't know how to present it... The clarity of the Gospel is what makes it easy for them to believe.” —Pastor Yankee Arnold, an excellent quote from the wonderful MP3 sermon titled, “WHY GRACE CAN SAVE THE WORST MAN!

“In conclusion, notice the vanity and pride involved in one testifying to his salvation who believes in Lordship salvation. He is saying, "I have made Jesus my Lord." That means that Jesus controls his life and he is totally yielded. My, what a statement for a person to make about himself! On the other hand, notice the humility in the person's testimony who says, "I am saved because I received Christ as my Saviour." He is talking about a salvation that he did not merit. He did nothing to receive it except receive it. It was a gift. Whereas, if we had to give something to God to get something in return, he and God made a trade and his salvation is earned.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Lordship Salvation” (chapter 11 from his book: “Salvation Is More Than Being Saved”)

Pastor J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988) wisely said:

Christianity is NOT a ceremony;
Christianity is NOT even the Church;
Christianity is NOT a system;
Christianity is a person, 
and that Person is the Lord Jesus Christ, 
and it's Who He is, and what He has done.
THAT'S CHRISTIANITY, and nothing else is Christianity. 
Oh, how we need to get back to HIM—the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

“Salvation becomes ours when we trust Christ to SAVE us. Effective service is ours through OBEDIENCE. Salvation primarily involves the spirit and our eternal destiny; it is a gift (John 5:24). Service involves the body and our present earthly life; it is labor for which rewards are given (Romans 12:1, 2; I Corinthians 3:8-15; Luke 10:2).” —Pastor Ray Stanford (1916-2012)

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous; it is a gift for the guilty!

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from?

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

"Lordship salvation would make salvation a trade or a deal or maybe even a bribe.  It would take away the simple reception of Christ for eternal life and would become God giving us something if we give Him something. God would say to us, 'You give Me something; I'll give you something. We will trade, and you will be saved.' Salvation is not my giving God something and God giving me something; salvation is God giving me something and my receiving it. Romans 6:23, 'For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.'" —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Lordship Salvation” (chapter 11 from his book: “Salvation Is More Than Being Saved”)

We must stay true to the simplicity of the gospel!! Repentance regarding salvation is a change of mind from unbelief to belief!!! We must earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3).

“Salvation can only be evidenced by works, if works are required to be saved.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong!

“Salvation is not our doing, but it is something that the Lord does. We put our trust in Christ, He is the One that saves us. And again I repeat: He rescues us, He ransoms us, He redeems us, He regenerates us. All of that we find out, simply by reading the Bible.” —Pastor Sheldon Smith, 'Making A Difference' radio broadcast; May 14, 2021; 'The Distinguishing Difference in the Christian Life - Part 10'

“Redemption is a work of God the Son.  Regeneration is the work of God the Holy Spirit.  Justification is the work of God the Father as He declares the sinner righteous in the Son.  Conversion then becomes the work of the church as we change the use and purpose of a life.” —Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001)

"In Luke 13:5 Jesus said, 'I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.' The context of this verse shows that they needed to repent or change their mind regarding punishment and sin. In this passage, Christ was talking to good people who believed that people suffered only because of their sins, and they concluded that those in Galilee whose blood Pilate mingled with sacrifices and those on whom the tower of Siloam fell were greater sinners because they died such horrible deaths. Jesus contradicts the thinking of these self-righteous people and tells them that they need to repent or change their mind and see themselves as sinners, too, or they will perish in their own self-righteousness. One does not have to know the Greek language to see that 'repent' in this passage does not mean feeling sorry for or turning from sin." —Pastor Curtis Hutson, an excerpt from his helpful booklet titled: "Repentance: What Does The Bible Teach?"

What all of these hellbound infidels today (e.g., John MacArthur, Steve Pettit, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Sam Horn, Chuck Phelps) are really preaching, is that you must keep the Old Testament law to prove that your faith is genuine to be saved. That is a 100% works-based plan of damnation! Christ came to save us from our sin (Matthew 1:21), not demand that we turn away from our sin as a prerequisite to receive God's free gift of eternal life. Satan is a beautiful liar!

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous; it is a gift for the guilty! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Beware of being caught between grace and works!

“The first thing necessary to get saved is to get bad!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “God Only Saves Bad People

“Nobody goes to Heaven because he is good; you go to Heaven because you know you're bad, and you flee to Jesus Who died to save sinners.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “God Only Saves Bad People

“Yes, Jesus is Lord. He is Lord of the universe, and, of course, we believe that He is Lord. However, to believe that in order to be saved one must make Him the Lord of his life is just another form of salvation by works.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Lordship Salvation - An Enemy of Soulwinning

“Let me say again that I do not believe for a second that Christian people should live like the Devil. No preacher preaches separation more than I do. I simply believe that that separation is a work of the Holy Spirit just like regeneration is a work of the Holy Spirit, and it starts after one has repented from that which makes him lost, and that is unbelief.” ―Pastor Jack Hyles, “Misunderstood Repentance” (chapter 4) from his book: “Salvation Is More Than Being Saved

“If you go to Hell, you'll go to Hell with all your sins paid for!” —Pastor Max Younce (a quote from the sermon: "Bible Prophecy #5")

“You don't go to Hell because you won't quit your sinning!” —Pastor Curtis Hutson; Quote from the classic sermon, Why Do Men Go To Hell? (exposing 'Lordship Salvation')

“If all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags, then why would you use those rags to prove that you're saved?” —Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold, sermon quote: “How Do I Know God Really Loves Me? - Part 2”

“Remember this, if you're depending upon your own good works to get you to Heaven, you're lost! Your salvation had to be purchased with something that was incorruptible, with the precious blood of Jesus Christ!” —Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold, Bibleline Radio Show, “The Precious Blood Of Christ”

“The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.” —Evangelist Billy Sunday (1862-1935)

The LAW and the GOSPEL are two keys—the law is the key that shuteth up all men under condemnation, and the Gospel is the key which opens the door and lets them out.
