Salvation 

Eternal life in the fullness of God's love. Salvation is deliverance from anything that threatens to prevent fulfillment and enjoyment of our relationship with God. In the OT, God was experienced as the savior who delivered Israel from bondage in Egypt (Ex 14-15; See Canticle 8, The Song of Moses, BCP, p. 85; Dt 6:21-23). Salvation history is the ongoing story of God's activity and initiative for salvation. The OT records how God reached out to save the people of Israel through the law and the prophets. God's saving deeds in OT history are celebrated in the liturgy of the word at the Easter Vigil (BCP, pp. 288-291).
