The foundation of a firm faith is built on:
- An understanding of God's plan of salvation.
- A recognition of who Jesus is - God in human flesh.
- A recognition of your own previous rejection of Him and the perilous consequences of that.
- Receipt of the forgiveness of sin that Jesus gives.
- A heartfelt and sincere repentance and belief in Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
The resurrection and the gift of the Holy Spirit are what hold a firm faith together.
- The proof of the resurrection is overwhelming and unimpeachable.
- The presence of the Holy Spirit is manifest and undeniable.
