What Must I Believe to Be Saved?

What must I believe to be saved? Which truths are necessary for conversion? Here’s what Jonathan Edwards taught:

“It is essential to Christianity

that we repent of our sins,

that we be convinced of our own sinfulness,

that we are sensible we have justly exposed ourselves to God’s wrath,

that our hearts do renounce all sin,

that we do with our whole hearts embrace Christ as our only Saviour;

that we love him above all, and

are willing for his sake to forsake all, and

that we do give up ourselves to be entirely and forever his.”

Jonathan Edwards, Religious Affections, 334;  http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/what-is-essential-to-being-a-christian
