What Does it Mean to Be Saved?

There are people to whom the idea of salvation in Christianity seems like a puzzling or even daunting concept. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot in religious circles, but what does it actually mean? When someone says they’re “saved,” what exactly are they saved from? And more importantly, how does one get saved?

How to become a Christian

Introduction

A Christian is someone who follows Christ. The term ‘Christian’ literally means “Little Christ” and was used to describe Christ followers in the first century. Acts 11 tells us that in Antioch, after Barnabas and Paul taught the disciples for about a year, people started calling them Christians.

It seems like a simple enough story on the surface, but deep within comes real truth.
